Pakistani actor Feroze Khan has denied the allegations of domestic abuse leveled against him by his former wife Aliza Sultan.
Taking to Instagram he said, “I, Feroze Khan, vehemently deny any baseless, malicious and untruthful allegations which have been leveled against me and are circulating on the social media rumor mill,” he shared in an Instagram story. “These allegations have no basis in truth or reality.”
The actor added that he will pursue the allegations legally and has advised his legal team to do so already. “I fully intend to institute legal proceedings against the perpetrators of these actions, and I have instructed my legal team accordingly.”
I am still processing this and am in a state of shock. Nothing can and will justify violence against a woman. My heart is with Alizah as well as Sultan, and Fatima.

Feroze further shared, “I would categorically like to state that I have always followed the law in its true letter and spirit and have never knowingly hurt another human being. I very strongly believe in all human rights of every human inhabiting planet earth.”
His co-star from the ongoing serial, Habs, Ushna Shah said: “I am still processing this and am in a state of shock. Nothing can and will justify violence against a woman. My heart is with Alizah as well as Sultan, and Fatima.”
The Director of the serial Musaddiq Malek asked fans to keep the drama away from controversy and not ruin the hard work of the other 40 people who worked on the project. He said, “The hardest upload of Habs so far. A team of 40 people worked day and night for more than a hundred days to put up a show with blood and sweat. We can’t let some ignorant, self-centered, egoistic man ruin that for all of us.”
Aliza Sultan had shared pictures of bruises on her body claiming domestic abuse. Pictures went viral on social media that triggered condemnation from other celebrities. Several co-actors of Feroze Khan called for his boycott and demanded action against him. They voiced their solidarity with Aliza.
According to Aliza Sultan, these images are submitted as evidence of physical and domestic abuse in court.
