Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui who was busy shooting for his film Raees broke his silence on the recent controversy surrounding him. He along with his lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee briefed the media at a press conference in Mumbai. The two clarified their side of story in the recent controversy around the actor.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui said, “This entire incident was pre-planned against me. They tried to provoke me and my family and tried to video record our conversation and reaction in defence anticipating that we will file a FIR against them. The police is investigating the matter further on both the FIRs and I want the truth to come out. I enjoy my profession as an actor and want to focus only on that aspect. I have and always want to stay away from any kind of negativity and thus wanted to clarify my side with all my media friends.”

Advocate Rizwan Siddiquee stated that, “The Police will do a proper investigation in the matter, and the truth will be out soon. The aim and object of the Complainant is apparent from her own conduct and I need not say more. The very fact that the Complainant as a third party was interfering in a self created Society matter and provoking my client says it all.”

Nawaz had filed a cross-FIR against five people following a woman’s complaint that he pushed her and behaved inappropriately during a dispute over parking space, the National Award winner’s manager said.

A complaint was registered at the Versova police station earlier, against Nawazuddin by a woman named Heena Sheikh, who resides in the same housing society as the actor. In her complaint, Heena, 24, daughter of Soni Dandekar, the chairman of Zohra Aghadi Nagar housing society at Yari Road, claimed she was manhandled by Nawazuddin’s bodyguards.
