Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's autobiography 'An Ordinary Life: A Memoir' is in news for all wrong reasons. The memoir has been garnering public attention because of details regarding Nawaz's romantic relationships. After the actor's first co-star Niharika Singh slammed his for making personal details public and fabricating stories, Nawaz's first girlfriend and theatre artist Sunita Rajwar also opened up on the alleged lies about her in the book. After much hullabaloo, Nawaz has decided to withdraw his book.

Tweeting an apology on micro-blogging site, the Babumoshai Bandookbaaz actor wrote, ''I m apologising 2 every1 who's sentiments r hurt bcz of d chaos around my memoir #AnOrdinaryLife I hereby regret & decide 2 withdraw my book''. The withdrawal also comes after Mid-day reported that a complaint has been lodged against the actor with the National Commission for Women.

Nawaz's Miss Lovely co-star Niharika accused him of mentioning her name without consent and ''manipulating a fleeting relationship''. Sunita has also criticised the actor for orchestrating facts in his book. Writing a long post on Facebook titled ''An Ordinary Life'' of  ''Extraordinary Lies'', the artist has put forward her side of the story. Sunita said that it was his poor thinking that made her dump Nawaz. 

According to the book, though both were from the National School of Drama but they never met, however, Sunita calls it false. She says that Nawaz was one year senior to him so it was obvious that they met, however there wasn't any romantic relationships between them. Sunita called Nawaz a sympathy seeker who ''skillfully shows himself in a positive light''. Nawaz in his memoir also blamed Sunita of ending their relationship because of his poor financial status and later using his name after he became successful. About this, Sunita said that how could she leave him when she was worse off than him. She also challenged him to reveal the names she has supposedly talked about their relationships.

Neither then you respected women nor now, she wrote before concluding her long post written in Hindi.
