Nawazuddin Siddiqui hails from Budhana, a small town in Uttar Pradesh. Son of a proud farmer, Nawazuddin rather had humble beginnings. In a candid chat with Brut India, the Sacred Games actor recalled the time when a girl in his village had rejected him because she was a television addict and had no time to talk to him. At that moment, a young and hurt Nawazuddin had promised that girl to appear on television and had said, 'Ek din tujhe TV pe aa kar dikhaunga'. In his words:

"Actually, when we got a TV in our village, she used to go to watch Krishi Darshan. Sometimes when she was on her way, I'd ask her to talk to me. But she didn't talk to me because she wanted to go watch Krishi Darshan. So, I told her, ‘Ek din tujhe TV pe aa kar dikhaunga’ (One day, I’ll be on TV).”


Going further in the interview, Nawazuddin mentioned that after successfully bagging his first television series in Mumbai, he had dialled an old friend in his village to inform that girl about his television debut. However, he had learnt that the girl was married by then with five kids. Moreover, her husband did not allow her to watch TV or step outside their house. He can be quoted as saying:

"In Mumbai, when I did a serial for the first time, I remembered I had made a promise to a girl. So I called my friend in my village and asked him to talk to that girl. I had told her one day I'll be on TV. My program is tomorrow, on Sunday. My friend said, "Brother, she's married and has 5-6 children. And the person she's married to not only doesn't let her watch TV, but also doesn't let her leave the house."

Earlier in an interview, Nawazuddin had said that he would always support his wife, Aaliya and their two adorable kids, Shora Siddiqui and Yaani Siddiqui, would always remain his priority. He had shared: 

"I don't let negativity and hatred get to me. She is still the mother of my children, and we have shared a decade of our life together. I will always support her no matter what. Mera farz banta hai ke main unka khayal rakhu. Aaliya and I are not on the same page, we may not agree with each other, but our children have always been my priority."
