Afshan Azad met fame while playing Padma Patil in the recent Harry Potter movies. Recently, she has visited court to plea for her father and brother. She asked the judge to drop the death-threat charges against her family members.
Afshan Azad is 22 years old and it is believed that her father and brother made death threats against her when they found out she had a Hindu boyfriend. Afshan and her family are Muslim.
Her father is 54 and her brother is 28. Upon discovery of her Hindu boyfriend, they demanded that she end the relationship. The discussion quickly became very heated and they both threatened to kill her if she would not end the relationship.
Despite her plea, both of her family members were committed for trial.
