Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has garnered a lot of limelight in recent times because of his controversial biography – An Ordinary Life: A Memoir. Nawaz made some shocking revelations in the book, which created a huge stir in the industry.
On October 30, Siddiqui issued an apology for “hurting the sentiments” of women whose names he had mentioned in his memoir, allegedly without their consent and has decided to withdraw the book.
The 43-year-old actor took to Twitter in the wake of the controversy surrounding the book in which he detailed his relationships and flings with former Miss India Niharika Singh and Rajwar.

Sunita Rajwar has demanded an apology from Nawazuddin within 24 hours and has also demanded a sum of Rs. 2 crores, which she will be using for charitable purposes. Sunita has also started legal proceedings against the journalist who helped Nawaz write the memoir. She has also demanded through her notice that Nawazuddin should refrain from using her name in any sort of publication in the future.
The detailed notice sent also includes excerpts from Nawazuddin’s book where he mentioned Sunita’s name and stated that he assumed the reason behind their break up to be his poor status. Sunita Rajwar clarifies that the relationship details are false and are merely figments of his imagination. The book has deeply hurt her and has caused her mental trauma apart from reputation spoilage. She mentions, despite Nawazuddin’s withdrawal of the memoir, the book is still in circulation and thus the damaged caused to her is irreparable.
The actress has sued him for defamation and has demanded Rs. 2 crores for the damages done to her.
Nawaz apologised for hurting the sentiments of those involved and announced his decision to withdraw the book. We’ll have to wait for Nawaz and his lawyers to react to this.
