Pakistani actress Iqra Aziz has refused to work with Feroze Khan after the actor came under allegations of domestic abuse. She dropped the project against him after the former wife of Feroze Khan, Aliza Sultan accused him of domestic abuse.
Aziz took to Instagram and shared her two cents on the controversy. She quoted, “To stay silent in the face of injustice is to side with the oppressor” and the Suno Chanda star finally broke the silence, and also the contract for Wajahat Rauf directorial. She said the decision, although a “difficult” one, was “necessary” for her to not side with an alleged abuser.
“In lieu of the situation regarding domestic violence, I have made the difficult but necessary decision to retract my project with Feroze Khan, as a sign of support for victims of domestic abuse. I support Aliza Sultan for seeking justice, more strength, and power for you,” read her note.
