She was very politically active and even filed for nomination papers for the provincial assembly PK– 77 seat in the 2018 General Elections. But then, she withdrew her nominations at the last moment.

Asif also shared that, Shah Rukh Khan‘s father and Jehan’s father were siblings and the cousins were in touch with each other on telephone occasionally. She had visited the ‘Fan’ actor in 1997 and 2011 along with her husband. The actor too had paid a visit to his extended family residing in Peshawar twice along with his parents. Shah Rukh Khan, who was last seen in the movie ‘Zero’ is yet to comment about his sister’s demise.
