Jiah Khan on her lineage controversy

Actress Jiah Khan is surrounded by controversy even before her debut. Jiah, the daughter of yesteryears star Rabiya, is rumoured be the lovechild of Rabiya and Aamir Khan's father and veteran filmmaker Tahir Hussain who worked together in several projects. However, in an exclusive telephone conversation Jiah vehemently denied the allegations. "It’s completely untrue. I don't know where this rumour came from and as far as my father goes, my parents separated before I was born. So, I am not in touch with him. And as far as I know, he is an American. But these rumours are quite upsetting," she said.
