Hanima Anand |Nov 26, 2020

While sources state Kiara Advani is the step-great-granddaughter of the Bollywood icon Ashok Kumar, not many people can imagine their relation. Let us explain it in details here!

Kiara Advani is an interesting case of Bollywood debutants. Though she wasn’t born in a typical cinematic family as Alia Bhatt or Ananya Pandey, Kiara quickly gains massive popularity in the industry after her first movies. Having said that, people are reluctant to believe Kiara Advani grandfather or her parents do not have any link to Bollywood.

Netizens are always curious whether Kiara Advani is linked with Bollywood nepotism.

Scroll down below and we will show you how this Kabir Singh actress is related to legendary Hindi film icons despite her businessman father.

Kiara Advani grandfather & relation to the Ganguly family

To trace back to who was Kiara Advani grandfather, you should know her parents first.

Kiara Advani real name is Alia Advani. She changed her name to Kiara before her debut in 2014 so as not to be mistaken with Alia Bhatt, suggested by Salman Khan.

You may not know Kiara Advani real name is Alia.

Kiara Advani’s father is a Sindhi Hindu businessman named Jagdeep Advani. Kiara Advani's mother is Genevieve Jaffrey who is a teacher. When people talk about Kiara Advani grandfather, they probably refer to Genevieve Jaffrey’s dad who linked to the Ganguly family. Jagdeep Advani’s family backgrounds are not related to the film industry though.

Jagdeep Advani net worth also remains a mystery as neither Kiara nor her father reveals any information of their family business. The only number we know is Kiara Advani net worth, which is estimated at 21 crore of Indian rupees.

Kiara Advani Parents
Kiara Advani relates to Ashok Kumar on her maternal side.

Back to our main question, Kiara Advani grandfather is Hameed Jaffrey, a Muslim, who is the brother of British-Indian actor Saeed Jaffrey. Therefore, Saeed Jaffrey is called the great uncle of Kiara Advani.

Kiara Advani grandmother is Valerie Salway, a descendant of Scottish, Irish, Portuguese and Italian. Valerie was the first wife of Hameed Jaffrey. They had two daughters together, including Geneviève Jaffrey (Kiara’s mother) and Shaheen Jaffrey.

Kiara Advani grandfather Hameed Jaffrey married twice. After his divorce from Kiara’s grandmother, he got married to Bharati Patel who is the daughter of movie icon Ashok Kumar. Bharati Patel then acquired Geneviève Jaffrey and Shaheen Jaffrey as her step-daughters, turning Kiara Advani her step-granddaughter.

Accordingly, Kiara Advani is a step-great-granddaughter of Ashok Kumar as many sources claimed. That’s the way she is related to the privileged Ganguly family built up by three brothers Ashok Kumar, Anoop Kumar, and Kishore Kumar.

In brief, Kiara Advani shared no biological link with the Ganguly family members. Their sole relation is the second marriage between Ashok Kumar’s daughter and Kiara Advani grandfather.

Meanwhile, the Kabir Singh actress is directly related to actor Shaheen Jaffrey by blood as he is the brother of her grandfather, Hameed Jaffrey.
