The actor’s brother, Fahmaan, shared information about his health a few weeks ago and pleaded for financial assistance for treatment.
“Faraaz was admitted to the Vikram hospital emergency ward where we found out that due to a herpes infection in his brain that had spread from his chest, he suffered three consecutive seizures. In addition, when he suffered from these seizures, he swallowed the mucus and saliva of his cough that entered his lungs and induced pneumonia,” the family said in the statement.
Faraz Khan has starred in films such as Mehndi (1998), Fareb (1996), Dulhan Banoo Main Teri (1999), among others, and Chand Bujh Gaya (2005).
