Feroze hasn’t spoken much about his personal life and childhood ambitions in his previous interviews. Not many know that he wanted to become an army officer. So, what led him to pursue a career in entertainment industry?

“I wanted to become an army officer, and if not that then I wanted to work for the intelligence. This was my dream. I wanted to serve my country in some capacity but I’m a flat foot and I’ve a lazy lens due to which I wasn’t able to pursue my ambitions,” he shared, adding, “But Alhamdullilah, no complaints, God had beautiful plans.”

The actor went on to share how he credits his success to Humaima Malick and directors like Farooq Rind and Anjum Shehzad, who are his mentors. “They accepted me in a phase when I was a difficult person to handle and I learnt so much through them,” he shared.

Talking about Khuda Aur Mohabbat, Feroze wants his fans to only receive the positive messages from Farhad.

“I really loved and enjoyed playing Farhad. Hashim Nadeem, Abdullah Kadwani and Asad Qureshi have done a tremendous job. I appreciate the hard work of everyone who was a part of our team and made KAM what it is. I, alone, am not responsible for the flaws or success of the drama. I’m a fan of Wajahat Hussain how he worked on every detail of the character.”
