Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's wife Aaliya Siddiqui has sent a legal notice to the actor claiming maintenance and divorce.

The notice was sent to the Sacred Games star on 7 May through email and WhatsApp due to the unavailability of speed post amid the coronavirus pandemic, lawyer for Aaliya (Anjali), Abhay Sahai said.

The lawyer also said that Nawazuddin is yet to respond to the notice.

"Mrs Siddiqui, our client, has also sent the notice through WhatsApp.

"However, Mr Siddiqui has not responded till date. The notice has been sent claiming maintenance and divorce," Sahai told Press Trust of India on Monday.

The 45-year-old actor is currently in his hometown Budhana, Uttar Pradesh, with his family members, where he reached on 12 May after getting the necessary permission for travel from the authorities in Maharashtra.

"Due to the recent loss of my younger sister, my mother, who is 71 years old, got anxiety attack twice. We have followed all the guidelines given by the State Government. We are #HomeQuarantined at our hometown Budhana. Please #StaySafe #StayHome,” Nawazuddin tweeted on Monday.
