For all his faults, de­luded Cit­i­zen

Khan is in­tensely proud of his fam­ily and back­ground, and his al­ter ego, Adil Ray, feels ex­actly the same about his own won­der­fully rich and var­ied her­itage af­ter peep­ing into the branches of his fam­ily tree. The ac­tor and pre­sen­ter be­gins his jour­ney in Kenya where he ex­plores his African roots and the con­tro­ver­sial in­ter­ra­cial mar­riage be­tween his grand­par­ents Meraj, who came from what is now Pak­istan, and Aisha, who was from Uganda. As he then vis­its Uganda to dis­cover the truth be­hind a fam­ily story about Aisha’s sep­a­ra­tion from her mother, he also in­ves­ti­gates ru­mours that she was re­lated to Ugan­dan roy­alty. What would Mr Khan say?!
