Shah Rukh's Cousin To Contest In Pakistan

Shah Rukh's Cousin To Contest In Pakistan

Bollywood and Pakistan seem to be inseparable at times as there will be some news of the neighbouring terrorist haven in one way or the other. After banning 'Veere Di Wedding' for its expletives and bold content, here comes Pakistan in the news for its Bollywood connect yet again.

Not many know that Shah Rukh Khan's ancestors hail from Peshawar before his family settled in Delhi. And there are many relatives of the actor settled in Pakistan after the partition, whom SRK visited when he was 15 years old along with his father. Here is one of his cousins, who is running in elections now.

Noor Jehan happens to be a paternal cousin of Shah Rukh and she visited him twice in Mumbai some time ago. She will be running for a Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Assembly seat as an independent candidate. This region is close to the Afghan border and Khan's ancestors hail from that place. Currently, Noor Jehan is asking the voters to support her candidature like they supported her brother's films in Pakistan.

Though Khan hasn't said any word about his cousin contesting in elections, his mere name itself is enough to garner attention for her. That's what happening right now in India!
