It has been 14 years of togetherness, with six years of courtship and nine years of marriage and a beautiful journey with ups and downs for Aaliya and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
“He is and will always be my first love,” says Aaliya, glad that when she has donned the producer’s hat with YS Entertainment, and is coming out with her first film Holy Cow, directed by Sai Kabir followed Teejanbai, Nawaz is being the wind beneath her wings. “We are both earthy and real. And in that genuineness of relationship, everyday is Valentine’s Day,” says an emotional Aaliya, fondly looking at her picture taken after their wedding at their home. “He would borrow five rupees and wake me up with bread and butter. I would some days take the pain in my heart not having that one rupee to call him and hear his voice. But I would never replace these moments with any other.”
