“You are truly a great Human Being. Thank you for taking care of Faraaz Khan and his medical bills. Actor Faraaz Khan of Fareb game is in critical condition and Salman has stood by his side and helped him like he helps so many others. I am and will always remain a true admirer.

Please help me raise enough funds to get Faraaz the treatment he needs.”

Explaining his illness, they stated: “Faraaz had been suffering from a cough and an infection in his chest for nearly a year. Recently, the coughing had aggravated so due to the prevailing pandemic, he decided to consult the doctor over a video call.”A few days ago, Faraaz’s family members, Farhad Abousher and Ahmed Shamoon issued a statement, urging people to financially help them to cover the medical expenses.
