Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui had found himself in the midst of a controversy a few months ago when he made some shocking revelations about his personal life in his biography titled 'An Ordinary Life'.
The actor had to withdraw his biography from the market and confirmed it on his Twitter handle. "I m apologising for 2 every1 who's sentiments r hurt bcz of d chaos around my memoir #AnOrdinaryLife I hereby regret & decide 2 withdraw my book," he tweeted.
And now, Nawazuddin has once again grabbed the headlines for all the wrong reasons. This time, he has been accused of allegedly spying on his estranged wife.
The actor has been accused of keeping Call Detail Record (CDR) of his estranged wife Sheeba to keep a look on her and her calls. The report further mentioned that the details were obtained from private detectives, which were hired by the actor.
According to PTI, his name cropped up in the Call Detail Record (CDR) scam on Friday. But the 43-year-old has dismissed the claims, terming them as "random". He also took to Twitter where he criticised the media for questioning him about his involvement in the scam.
"Last evening, I was helping my daughter to prepare her school project Hydroelectric Power Generator and went to her school this morning for Project Exhibition. To my surprise, the media had questions about some random allegations on me #Disgust," Nawazuddin wrote, along with a few pictures with his daughter.
The Thane police had said they had summoned Siddiqui, his wife Anjali, and a lawyer in connection with investigations into the CDR scam that came to light in January.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Abhishek Trimukhi told media persons that the three had been called after some of the arrested had told police that an advocate had obtained CDRs of the actor's wife from private detectives.
The CDR racket was unearthed on January 24 when the police, acting on a tip-off, nabbed four private detectives from Kalwa in the district. Since then 11 persons had been arrested in the scam which involved the illegal procurement and sale of CDRs of private individuals.
