Talking about the same, he told ETimes, "I have two brothers and one sister. Faraaz, Fahed and Fadhya are my siblings. They are children of Zebisko aka Yousuf Khan. My mother was married to Zebisko first. His actual name is Yusuf Khan and at the age of 48, he died of a heart attack. At that time the kids were really young, my eldest brother was 14, my other brother was 12 and my sister was 9 at that time. My mother was a widow at that time with three young kids so my father who was a family friend at that time, got married to her. Three years down the line I was born. I am the son of her second husband Shahbaaz Khan."

Fahmaan still view Zebisko as his father, which is a modern perspective according to him. Initially, there were some difficulties because his siblings were young and struggled to accept the situation. They were afraid that my father would take their mother away from them. However, as time passed, my father was frequently absent, working to support our family in Saudi Arabia. My mother was always there for us, and eventually, my siblings came to understand that my father's actions were sincere.

The actor concluded, "Generally, I don't talk about it if people consider me Zubesko's son, I am fine with it. This is the first time I've spoken about it. He's my siblings father and also my dad and it is not an issue."
