Jhanvi's mother says she knew of Abhishek

Last updated on: April 20, 2007 16:30 IST

Mother of Jhanvi Kapoor alias Naina Rizvi, Shaheena Nasir, claimed that she knew of her daughter's relationship with Abhishek Bachhan.

"Yes, I knew of Naina's affair with Abhishek. But I always told her to bury it since she was a Muslim and her marriage with a Hindu could result in social embarrassment for us," Shaheena said from her uptown residence in Srinagar.

Naina's mother and son live in Srinagar's posh Raj Bagh locality.

Shaheena is married to a retired local bureaucrat, Agha Nasir, a former Union labour secretary. She married Nasir after a divorce from her first husband Mohsin Rizvi. She had four daughters from Mohsin, one of them being Naina.

The two elder daughters stayed with their father, while the younger ones came to Kashmir along with their mother in 1982.

Agha Nasir avoided comments about his step-daughter, but said she had been married to Shia cleric Kalbe Sadiq's son from Lucknow and they had a ten-year-old son, who goes to school in Srinagar.
