[1] His brother Waqar married Jamila Razaaq, the daughter of actress Sultana Razaaq, one of the earliest film actresses from India who acted both in silent movies and later in talkies. Jamila is also the granddaughter of India’s first female film director, Fatima Begum [2] and happens to be the great niece of Zubeida (the leading actress of India's first talkie film Alam Ara (1931)), who was the younger sister of her mother Sultana.
