Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has recalled a controversial biography which was criticised for detailing his relationships with several women without their permission.
The actor recently had excerpts from his memoir ‘An ordinary life’ published in a daily. Little did he know, that following the content being public he would be embroiled in a legal battle for defaming women he had brief affairs with.
It came to the extent where he had to pull back his book and apologise on Twitter.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui has not only revealed intimate details of his affair with Singh but also stated that actress Sunita Rajwar left him because she wanted to “date someone successful, not a struggling, desperate actor who was out of work”. After some excerpts were released recently, both Singh and Rajwar slammed Siddiqui for distorting facts.
According to Indian Express, An Ordinary Life was gearing up for an official launch in early November but Siddiqui’s publishers, Penguin Random House have confirmed that won’t be happening anymore.
“I can only confirm that we are withdrawing all copies of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s autobiography from the market; in fact, we have already done so,” says Hemali Sodhi, publisher, Penguin Random House.
