Arshi Khan says she was to get engaged to an Afghan cricketer who had been chosen by her father and she fears her family may have to call off the engagement because of the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.
She said, “I was to get engaged in October with an Afghanistan cricketer. He had been chosen by my father. But after the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, we may have to put an end to the relationship.”
Arshi mentions that although she was in touch with her soon-to-be fiancé, she fears her family may have to call off the engagement.
“He was my father’s friend’s son. We are also on talking terms and are like friends, but now I’m sure my parents will find me an Indian partner.”
Arshi said her family’s roots were in Afghanistan, she adds, “I’m an Afghani Pathan, and my family belongs to the Yusufzai ethnic group. My grandfather had migrated from Afghanistan and was a jailer in Bhopal. My roots are in Afghanistan, but I am very much an Indian citizen, like my parents and grandparents.”
On the work front, Arshi Khan, will be seen in an upcoming web series titled The Devil Inside, she will also start shooting for her Swayamvar show, Ayenge Tere Sajna.
