Jahanvi’s mother, Shahana Aga corroborates her daughter’s claim that she had an affair with Abhishek Bachhan but says that she was opposed to their marriage. “I did not approve of the marriage as he (Abhishek) is a Hindu and we are Muslims”, she said. Shahana also dismissed the reports as baseless that Jahanvi was married earlier and had a son.
“She was never married, so no question of having a son”, she said adding that Mohammad Ali, who is projected as her daughter’s son was in fact her (Shahana’s) son. Ali also said that Jahanvi was her elder sister, not mother.
However, a source close to the family outright rejects Shahana’s theory and says that Jahanvi was earlier married to renowned Shia clergy Kalb-e-Sadiq’s son Kalb-e-Hussain in Lucknow. He says that Jahanvi, who was known as Haiya also, had a son Kalb-e-Ali from Kalb-e-Hussain before he divorced her. “Ali is Jahanvi’s son, not Shahana’s as she claimed”, confirmed another family veteran.
He says that Shahana, a resident of Lucknow married to Agha Nasir Ali in 1986 after the death of her husband Mohsin Rizvi, who was reportedly an army officer, in UP. “Shahana had three daughters from Rizvi—Haiya (Jahanvi), Mohsinah and Neha”, he said adding all the three (daughters) were with her in Srinagar. “Jahanvi was in Srinagar till 1995, and I personally know that she had a son, whom she left with her mother Shahana after she went Mumbai to work in films”, he says.
Shahana said that her daughter and Abhishek developed an affair during the shooting of Hindi feature film
in which Jahanvi featured with Abhishek in some scenes. Jahanvi on Thursday night attempted to commit suicide after hearing of the Abhishek-Aishwarya wedding.
