Sacred Games actress Kubra Sait has come forward to defend Nawazuddin Siddiqui after his ex-girlfriend and former Miss India Niharika Singh accused him in her #MeToo account. Kubra took to her Twitter handle to voice her opinion on the issue and support Nawazuddin. In the Tweets, the actress says that one shouldn't involve personal relationship issues while addressing a movement such as #Metoo.
Kubra tweeted, "I stand by the fact that although Niharika Singh may have had a tough time in the industry, categorising her once personal relationship as a #MeToo statement is incorrectly placed. We as humans are flawed. That isn't gender specific."
In another tweet, she said, "A relationship gone sour, isn't #MeToo someone needs to recognise the toxic difference before we go picking sides.I stand by #NawazuddinSiddiqui or #Nowaz as a man." - (sic)
Last year, Niharika and a few other women accused the Manto actor for lying in his autobiography, which was later withdrawn by the publishers Penguin Random House. Niharika called him out for 'exploiting and disrespecting women'.
Niharika also revealed that Nawazuddin had invited her home for breakfast and tried to misbehave by grabbing her. She said, "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."
However, Nawazuddin is yet to comment on the allegations made against him. Also, we need to wait and watch what Niharika has to say about Kubra defending Nawazuddin. Stay tuned for more updates.
