Feroze Khan has sent defamation notices to his ex-wife and several artists for false and baseless allegations against him. Khan took to Twitter and stated that “Defamation legal notice has been served by my legal team to those for [sharing] false and baseless allegations.”
Last year, several celebrities lent support to the actor’s former wife, Syeda Aliza Sultan, after she accused him of physical and psychological abuse during their four years of marriage. Many celebrities came out in her support, asking for Khan’s accountability.
Faique Ali Jagirani, Feroze Khan’s lawyer, shared that the legal notices have been served to the actor’s ex-wife, Syeda Aliza Sultan, directors Musaddiq Malek and Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, actors Osman Khalid Butt, Mira Sethi, Minal Khan, Aiman Khan, Sarwat Gilani, Yasir Hussain and Farhan Saeed alongside singer Asim Azhar.
“The artists that have been served have made several false claims on social media – directly or indirectly – about Feroze Khan,” Jagirani shared with the publication. “We have sent defamation legal notices to Feroze Khan’s peers, giving them a chance to clarify their position on the accusations. Either bring forth proof to support your claim or apologise publicly.”
Khan’s legal representative further stated, “In today’s age of social media, you can’t just get away with anything you feel like. We have taken the legal steps to ensure that justice is swift. We have all the evidence against the aforementioned actors about their part in a malicious campaign against Feroze Khan on social media.”
