I filed for divorce two years ago, long before I met my companion (the man she shared a picture with on Instagram earlier this week), so he has nothing to do with my broken marriage has ended, but we talk for the sake of our kids. I want Nawaz to do well in life. Our divorce case is still on I have struggled for 19 years.

I have finally moved on and I am in a happy space,” Aaliya Siddiqui told ETimes.

He was the one who approached me and we got talking. He is intelligent, simple, extremely respectful, loving and caring. He was a huge emotional support to me in this past year. He wants me to grow in life and be less conscious. He makes me wonder… kaash yeh mujhe pehle mila hota. Though he is more comfortable speaking in French and Italian, while I speak Hindi, our common language of communication is English. So, now he is learning Hindi and teaches me his languages. He wants to visit India soon.”
