PESHAWAR: Noor Jehan, first cousin of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, died here on Tuesday after protected illness.

She was 52 years old. Known by her nick name Munni, Noor Jehan was suffering from oral cancer for the last few months and finally lost her battle against the fatal ailment Tuesday, confirmed her husband, Asif Burhan.

Talking to this news agency, grief-stricken Asif said Shah Rukh’s father and Munni’s father were siblings and she used to contact her cousin Shah Rukh on telephone occasionally.

Noor Jehan left behind three children including two sons and one daughter. She had named her elder son after Shah Rukh Khan who is now studying in 12th grade (FSc pre-medical).

Noor Jehan had also visited India to meet Shah Rukh Khan in 1997 and 2011. In her first visit, she was accompanied by her husband and later she was alone. During her visits to India, she used to purchase special gifts for Shah Rukh Khan including Peshawar Chappal and boski, a cloth used to wear by Peshawari elite on special occasions, Asif recalled.
