Saeeda Imtiaz, the Pakistani-Amercain actor-cum-model, Tuesday responded to reports surrounding her death, which made rounds on mainstream and social media earlier today.
"Assalamualaikum, I am Saeeda Imtiaz. I want to inform all of you that I am doing fine," the model-cum-actor said in a video message, as reports were rife of her death.
News of her death had spread on social media following an announcement made on her official Instagram account.
As per the account, Saeeda Imtiaz was found dead in her room. However, no further details about the model's death were given.
"I have to say this regret that when I woke up today I received several calls and messages. I could not comprehend what had happened. This was very shocking."
The actor said it was very troubling for her family — mom and siblings — as they live abroad.
"My Facebook and Instagram accounts were hacked," she said.
"I can understand that people bully or tease others sometimes, but hurting a person to the extent of their family and mental health is not acceptable," she added.
The actor said she was "crying" throughout the day, but vowed that she would make sure that she gets to know who hacked her account and will take legal action against them.
She hoped that the person who hacked her account would learn, during the month of Ramadan, that it wasn't right to hurt someone.
Before the actor, her legal adviser and manager Mian Shahbaz Ahmed told Geo.tv that Imtiaz was “alive and well” at her home in Lahore.
Ahmed said that legal action would be taken against those who had hacked Imtiaz's social media accounts and fuelled the rumours. "We will find out the issue behind this matter," he said.
