Early Life of Amrita Singh
Amrita Singh was born on February 9, 1958, to Rukhsana Sultana and a Punjabi Jat Sikh father, army officer Shivinder Singh Virk, from a noble family, descended from 17th-century Sikh martyr Bhai Sangat Singh.
During the Indian Emergency of the 1970s, her mother was a political associate of Sanjay Gandhi, and she gained notoriety for leading Sanjay Gandhi’s sterilisation campaign in Muslim areas of Old Delhi.
Amrita is the great-granddaughter of Sobha Singh, one of New Delhi’s builders, the grandniece of the late novelist Khushwant Singh, and the great-granddaughter of politician Ujjal Singh through her paternal grandmother Mohinder Kaur. Her great-aunt is the actress Begum Para, and her husband was Dilip Kumar’s brother, Nasir Khan.
Shah Rukh Khan’s childhood friend was Singh. Their mothers frequently worked together in Old Delhi, and Singh went to the same school as Khan’s sister, Shahnaz.
