Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan and her brother Sajid are Farhan's first cousins.

The duo's mum Menaka Irani is Farhan's mother Honey Irani and Daisy Irani's sister.

Interestingly, Farah and Farhan's birthdays are just a day apart -- Farah celebrates her birthday on January 9 while Farhan's birthday is the next day. No wonder then, they celebrate their birthdays together.
