To this, the actor's niece said, "I saw that she has filed a case because violence has happened with her as well. And violence has happened with each and every girl/woman in our house. A total of 3 divorces has happened at our house - My mom and my aunts. They all have left the house because of violence. They were being trashed by their husbands since the very next day of marriage. I am the eldest in my family and the same thing has happened to me too. Aaliya also knew that such things were happening with me. She told me to be strong and speak up on all such matters. She said that no one will stop you. First I thought that I will be suppressed if I speak about it but now I have taken this step with much daring because this thing had to come forward."
She further said, "I did not speak to Aaliya badi mummy much about it but she gave me a lot of strength and told me to stand up for myself. She said that nothing will happen."
Meanwhile, yesterday Aaliya had come out in support of Sasha as she took to Twitter to express a sense of solidarity. She wrote, “This is just the beginning. Thanking God for sending so much support already. Lot will be revealed, shocking the world as I am not the only one who suffered in silence. Let’s see how much of TRUTH money can buy & who all would they continue to BRIBE.”
