By Hanako M. Ricks
HollywoodNews.com: The father and brother of Harry Potter actress Afshan Azad, who plays Padma Patil in the series, have both been arrested and charged for threats and acts of bodily harm. The charges stem from an attack at Azad’s home on May 21 of this year.
Her father, Abdul Azad, is accused of threatening to kill his daughter while her brother, Ashraf Azad is accused of threatening to kill and assault occasioning actual bodily harm against his sister. Afshan was allegedly attacked because her family, who are Muslim, did not approve of her relationship with a Hindu man, according to a spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service. Both men have appeared in court but the case has been adjourned until later on this month. They are currently out on bail.
Afshan had never acted before she auditioned on a whim for the role of one of the Patil twins. She has appeared in all of the films since her first, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and will appear in the final two parts for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
