In the post, she wrote how once when he was shooting all night, he texted her saying he was near her building. “I invited him over to have breakfast with me. When I opened the door, he grabbed me. I tried to push him away but he wouldn’t let go. After a little coercion, I finally gave in. I wasn’t sure what to make of this relationship. He told me it was his dream to have a Miss India or an actress wife, just like Paresh Rawal and Manoj Bajpayee. I found his little confession funny but endearing.”
In his biography titled ‘An Ordinary Life: A Memoir’, Nawazuddin Siddiqui mentioned about his relationship with Niharika. However, he later apologized and did not release the book as it was not well received as he had revealed the relationship without her knowledge.
