Mahira Khan recently logged onto Instagram to share a gratifying tribute to her dear relatives.
Posting a lovely photo with his two aunts, the Superstar actor wrote: “I always grew up hearing that Phophos was not always the best, stories about children who did not enjoy their father’s family as much as their mothers (perhaps this would be desirable? I never understood.
Khan continued to remember how he grew up in a joint family at his Dada’s home. “We are all together. Even those who did not live with us were always there. I have two Phopos and God, you all can’t imagine what they look like. These are beautiful, fun, kind and strong women, ”she said.

I always grew up hearing how Phopos were not always the best, stories about kids not enjoying their fathers family as much as their mothers (Might be a desi thing?). I never really got that! I grew up in a joint family, in my dada’s home. All of us together. Even those who didn’t live with us were always around. I have two Phopos and God you all can’t imagine what they are like. They are beautiful, funny, kind and strong women. My older Phopo ( Surraiya) , looked after her parents along with my father like they were her babies. The woman who works for her eats with her on their table.. I have never seen that anywhere. My younger Phopo ( Seema) , when she moved to America with her family, worked till the day she left literally. And while I was there, her home was my safe place, till she was there I knew I would be ok. I feel like we are who we are because of all these relationships and people we have grown up with. There is so much of my Dadi Dada in them and there is so much of them in me. I thank God every day for them and my Chachas ( I have 2, but that’s for another day 💁🏻♀️). ♥️🧿
“My oldest Phopho (Surraya) cared for his parents with my father, as if they were his children. The woman who works for her eats with her at her desk … I’ve never seen this anywhere. ”
The actor continued to talk about his young Fopo and how his home in the United States was his refuge. “My youngest Fopo (Sima), when he moved to the United States with his family, worked until the day he literally left. And while I was there, her house was my safe place, while she was not there, I knew that everything would be fine with me. ”
“I feel like we are what we are because of all these relationships and the people we grew up with. There is so much of my dad Dadi in them, and many of them in me. I thank God every day for them and my chachi (I have 2 of them, but this is the next day) ”, concluded the Raes asterisk.
