Hazel was last seen playing the lead role in Medea, which is an adaptation of Euripides’ Greek tragedy Medea. The play was directed by Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan.
The bonding between Ira and Hazel had become one of the most talked-about phenomenons on social media lately. Iran had shared a dramatic photo of herself going down on one knee while offering Hazel the lead role of Medea, which is an adaptation of Euripides’ Greek tragedy Medea. A day after Ira had revealed how Hazel said ‘yes to her proposal’, it emerged that she also cast her brother Junaid Khan to play a lead character in her upcoming play Medea.
Hazel had shot to fame after working in Bodyguard, a film starring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
Yuvraj and Hazel had tied the knots in November 2016.
