Renowned actor Feroze Khan, who declared his comeback to showbiz a little while back, recently posted a quote from Ibn Arabi, a Muslim scholar, poet and philosopher of the 12th century. The actor posted a picture of Turkish actor Osman Soykut to Instagram, playing the character of Ibn Arabi in the historical drama series Dirilis: Ertugrul.
As the gossip about his private life is prevalent, Khan shared a classic quote about isolation from the poet. After that, Soykut thanked Feroze Khan for the message. “On the road to bravery, loneliness is an essential friend,” read the photo.
“Soon after Khan had uploaded it, Soykut turned to Instagram and shared the same photo again and wrote, “Thank you Feroze Khan for sharing the great master Ibn Arabi’s golden words. I have learnt that you have abandoned show business to represent Islam. I assume that there are several different ways of supporting the common good. If there is something I can do for you or if you would like to work together on any projects, please let me know.
Since he revealed it on Twitter, the Romeo Weds Heer star was praised for being “brave” enough to leave showbiz. However, Khan seems to have returned to his daily life again in recent days, shortly after vanishing from social media.
“Last week, in an interview with Something Haute, he said, “My Sheikh told me not to leave showbiz.” Further elaborating, he said his mentor felt that the industry was a way of promoting the ‘paighaam’ of religion.
