Check out Sumbul Touqeer’s father’s tweet here:

Sumbul's father appeared in a few episodes of Bigg Boss 16 to support his daughter. He has always remained silent about the trolling and the digs that fans of Sumbul often take at him. 

In one interview, Fahmaan Khan hinted that it was Sumbul’s father’s excessive interference that caused them to drift apart. Before Sumbul entered the Bigg Boss 16 house, the Imlie co-stars were best friends and were always spotted together at most events.


After Fahmaan’s interview, fans posted mean comments about the actress’ father. To bring the situation under control, Fahmaan tweeted, “Please, guys, no hate to anyone. The only reason I did that interview is to tell you guys that nobody was at fault. The situation was wrong, and worse were the interpretations. Please stop writing things that can hurt someone's sentiments. And watch the IV to be at peace.”

Talking about Sumbul's professional front, she is currently seen essaying the role of an IPS officer opposite Mishkat Verma in Kavya – Ek Jazbaa, Ek Junoon.
