Iqra Aziz has retracted from the project starring Feroze Khan!
Iqra was last seen alongside Feroze Khan in Khuda Aur Mohabbat Season 3 and they also shared the screen together in Pinjra alongside Imran Ashraf, directed and produced by Wajahat Rauf.
However, in wake of recent domestic violence accusations against Feroze Khan by his former wife Aliza Sultan, Iqra Aziz revealed that she won’t be working with the actor.
The project is reportedly a Geo production form that Aziz has walked out of.
Well, there are a number of actors who came calling out Feroze Khan over domestic violence allegations, but Iqra Aziz is the first one who has taken a step to cancel Feroze Khan in the show biz industry.
Taking it to Instagram, along with hashtags #saynotoviolence and #supportwomen, Iqra Aziz said, “‘To stay silent in the face of injustice is to side with the oppressor.’ 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.

On the other hand, Feroze Khan issued a statement following backlash over domestic violence allegations.
“I, Feroze Khan vehemently deny any and baseless, malicious, and untruthful allegations which have been levelled against me and are circulating on the social media rumour mill. These allegations have no basis in truth or reality. I fully intend to institute legal proceedings against the perpetrators of these actions and I have instructed my legal team accordingly,” Feroze Khan said.
