A complaint was registered with police on Sunday against Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui by a woman from the area in which he lives. She alleged that he pushed her and behaved inappropriately during a dispute over a parking space. Heena Sheikh, 24, the daughter of Soni Dandekar, the chairwoman of the Zohra Aghadi Nagar housing society, filed the complaint at Mumbai’s Versova police station, saying she was also manhandled by Siddiqui’s bodyguards. “I have been living here since 1994 and he moved here just a year ago and he has captured the parking slot,” Dandekar said. “We sent him many notices and even told him, ‘You are the flat owner, but this outside property is not yours’ – but he never acknowledged our complaints.” She added that when her daughter took photographs of the actor using the parking spot “he, along with his brother, and support staff manhandled her and pushed her.” – IANS
