I have been reading for a long time that Roopesh Kumar is a cousin of Mumtaz. Recently I read that it is not true, both are from Iran, but there is no relation.
Of course, sometimes long held beliefs turn out to be wrong. For example, it is true that the actor Iftekhar is NOT related to the actress Veena, please see
So, I decided to dig into my collection of magazines. Luckily found this interview in Star and Style (thanks to the veteran RMIMer Asif Alvi, again).
Note: Mumtaz is his father's sister's daughter, she is phupheri bahan and he is mamera bhai.
