Sarwat Gilani threatens legal action against Feroze Khan for sharing her mobile phone number online.

Actor Feroze Khan announced on Tuesday 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. However, in his initial post announcing the notice on Instagram that he later deleted, he shared the names of nine celebrities as well as their private information like their mobile pone numbers and, in some cases, their addresses. Sarwat Gilani, one of the people mentioned in the notice, has threatened to take action against Khan.

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Gilani shared a picture of what appears to be her mobile phone call log featuring over 100 missed calls from unknown numbers. She captioned her post, 'It is bizarre and despicable that private information, including phone numbers, of various famous individuals has been publicly shared on the absurd pretext of issuing legal notice to them by Feroze Khan.'

Gilani tagged filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, actors Yasir Hussain, Osman Khalid Butt, Mira Sethi, Aiman Khan, Asim Azhar, Minal Khan, Farhan Saeed and Muneeb Butt in her post, all of whom were named in the notice Khan posted and then deleted.

Sethi also took to her Instagram stories on Wednesday and reshared Gilani's post. 'Echoing what Sarwat says here about leaked numbers. Unbelievable,' she wrote, adding that her lawyer will respond to the notice and that she will continue to stand by Khan's former wife, Aliza Sultan.

Jalan actor Minal took to Instagram shortly after Gilani and Sethi and 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.'

She shared that his action caused her severe 'mental distress' as she has been receiving hundreds of calls and messages.

'My personal security has been breached and put at risk as I have been mentally harassed, tortured and threatened by multiple numbers. Me...
