Sasha adds that music is in my blood. Famous musicians Sajid and Wajid are my uncles. English songwriter Natasha Khan is my step sister. Jagal Kishore Mehra was the uncle of my grandfather and Raj Kapoor who married Anwari Begum, a famous singer of her time.
My grandmother Nasreen Agha was also a famous singer of her time. That is to say, I am the fourth generation of my family to belong to Gaigi. I was born into a singing family. “
