Farhan Saeed, Aiman Khan, Muneeb Butt to take legal action against Feroze Khan for sharing their numbers online.

Actor Feroze Khan's legal troubles keep piling up as another set of celebrities have announced they will be taking legal action against him for sharing their personal mobile phone numbers online. On Tuesday, the actor announced that he has served defamation notices to people perpetuating 'false and baseless allegations' against him with regards to the accusations by his former spouse Aliza Sultan of domestic abuse.

'Two days ago Feroze Khan had one ex-wife and her lawyer now he will have to face 10 celebrities and their lawyers after him. Good luck!' Gilani wrote.

Minal Khan

Shortly after, Minal Khan wrote, 'Yesterday my private information including my personal phone number was leaked on social media. It was an utterly shameful act which was carried out intentionally by Feroze Khan on the absurd pretext of issuing a legal notice.'
