Their grandfather was part of the peaceful struggle since 1930, which was headed by Bacha Khan.

According to Jehan, Shah Rukh Khan first visited Pakistan accompanied with his father in 1978. The second time, Khan visited in 1980 along with his sister, Jehan recalls that they all were teenagers during that time and had a wonderful time together.

The Awami National Party (ANP) had also considered Jehan for a reserved seat for women, but unfortunately she couldn’t make it to the K-P Assembly.
