Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who was charged for assaulting his sister-in-law for dowry, has reportedly denied the allegations and said that he had become a soft target since he is an actor.
Wife of Nawaz’s younger brother, Afrin, had complained to the police that the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ actor has been harassing her for dowry. She also alleged that on Sep 28, Nawaz not only abused her but also kicked her in the stomach even though she was three months pregnant.
Responding to these allegations, Nawaz said that since he is an actor, his sister-in-law was making false allegations to hit headlines. ‘On Sep 28, I was suffering from high fever. On that day, Afrin’s parents came to my house and demanded money, and they were ones harassing my younger brother. I have CCTV footage to prove my statements,’ he added.
Meanwhile, police are enquiring from all the possible aspects.
