Shafaq Naaz had a public falling with her sister Falaq Naaz in 2016 after accused their mother of mismanaging her money. She is living separately and has severed ties with the rest of the family. 2
Her younger brother, Sheezan Mohammed Khan was booked under IPC Section 306 for abetment to suicide and was taken into custody by the police after actress Tunisha Sharma committed suicide by hanging herself on 24th December 2022. 3
The Naaz sisters reunited after Sheezan was arrested and released a joint statement to the media. In the statement, Shafaq and Falaq wrote,
"As much as everyone is eager to know the 'other side of the story', we are equally curious to know, but for time being we'd like for you to allow us privacy in this grave situation. Both families are victims at this point. Let the right time come and we will address the matter for sure. But this is not the right time. A death is a painful situation everyone needs to honour the privacy of the affected Families and give them the space to mourn and carry on with the funeral first. It is such an unfortunate state that we lost a precious soul and another is arrested."

They further added, "Accusations have been leveled against Sheezan and the police are investigating the case. Let police take the call. I am confident that an innocent guy has been framed without an application of mind. This situation has been overwhelming for the family members and we'd like to take this time to co-operate with the police and let the truth come out. We have complete faith in the Indian judiciary system and hope the truth shall triumph. Also, please do not take our silence for weakness; We will speak soon when the time is right. But for now, allow and respect our privacy." 4
