Farhan Saeed recently responded to a fan who asked the audience to not watch his latest offering, Tich Button. The singer-turned-actor took to Twitter and shared his two cents about Feroze Khan's inclusion in the rom-com.
A Twitter user while addressing Saeed shared, "I would like to request to you all people. Do not watch this movie Tich Button because it features a 'wife beater'." She went on to tag Khan in the said tweet as well.
The Suno Chanda star then replied to the tweep and commented, "Well Ayesha, I respect your opinion but before you just put a cross on the hard work of almost 300 people for almost three years, you should know this movie was shot in 2019." Saeed further shared, "You don’t just cancel the hard work of so many people."

The Aye Musht-e-Khaak actor has been accused of abusing his former wife, Syeda Aliza Sultan. Earlier, Khan's other co-star, Sonya Hussyn, too, addressed the criticism of working with actors accused of domestic violence.
Hussyn, while appearing on The Talk Talk Show, spoke against domestic violence and opined that she will never support such an "inhumane" action, but still does not believe in labelling victims or culprits in a subjudice matter.
She noted, "Some things are very personal, and I am against domestic violence, it is a very inhumane act. But, I don't know their household matters personally, and many things can be exaggerated, therefore I can't say anything about it from just looking at pictures and labelling someone as a victim or culprit. Until I talk to both parties, I can't make any statement."
She also revealed that she doesn't prefer asking Khan about the ongoing case as she doesn't share a personal equation with him and considers him a colleague. "I am friends with Feroze, but not enough to ask anything [about the case]. I don't feel good probing about someone else's personal life," Hussyn added.
The film has been surrounded by controversies since Khan was accused of allegedly abusing Sultan. The actor has since 'vehemently' denied the said accusations. 'I, Feroze Khan, vehemently deny any and all baseless, malicious and untruthful allegations which have been levelled against me and are circulating on the social media rumour mill," he shared in an Instagram story. "These allegations have no basis in truth or reality."
Khan further shared, "I would categorically like to state that I have always followed the law in its true letter and spirit and have never knowingly hurt another human being. I very strongly believe in all human rights of every human inhabiting planet earth."
