“An abuser supporting another abuser.”
Feroze Khan was labelled “guilty” by social media users after he came out in support of his “favourite” Bollywood star Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Nawazuddin recently responded to the allegations made by his estranged wife Aaliya.
Claiming that she wants “more money”, Nawazuddin denied her accusations that he threw her and their children out of the house.
On March 7, 2023, Feroze Khan retweeted Nawazuddin’s comment on the situation and wished the actor well.
He added a bicep emoji to express his support and strength for Nawazuddin during this trying time.
However, social media did not like Feroze’s show of support, especially due to the fact that he has his own domestic abuse accusations against him that were made by his ex-wife Aliza Sultan.
Many believed Feroze was seeking attention while others claimed his show of support proved he was guilty of the abuse allegations.
One said: “This dude is the biggest attention seeker among all celebrities.”
Another wrote: “He must have abused Aliza, that’s why he is supporting another woman abuser.”
A third said: “An abuser supporting another abuser.”
One comment read: “He is such an opportunist.”
In response to recent claims of adultery, physical and mental abuse, and rape made by his ex-wife Aaliya Siddiqui, Nawazuddin Siddiqui spoke out.
He clarified that they had already been divorced for years and had not been living together.
In his statement, he claimed that he had previously funded Aaliya’s films and luxurious lifestyle and she had made false accusations against him in the past to extort money from him.
In the post, he said: “She (Aaliya) only wants more money and hence has filed numerous cases on me and my mother and it’s her routine, she has done the same in the past too and withdraws the case when paid as per her demand.”
Despite the serious allegations against him, Nawazuddin has received support from his fans and colleagues in the film industry.
After breaking his silence, Kangana Ranaut was one of the first stars to come to his defence.
She took to her Instagram Stories and shared:
“It was much needed @nawazuddin._siddiqui saab… silence does not always give us peace… I am glad you issued this statement.”
A legal dispute between Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Aaliya Siddiqui is presently ongoing.
The media has been covering their continuous conflict for some time.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui will next be seen on the big screen in the movie Haddi, where he will play a transgender character.
The movie is confirmed to release later in 2023.
