Although Jasim Khan claims in his biography of Salman Khan that his ancestors were members of the Akuzai sub-tribe of the Yusufzai Pashtuns from Malakand in the Swat valley of North-West Frontier Province, British India (present-day Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan), Salman Khan's paternal great-grandparents are thought to have been Alakozai Pashtuns from Afghanistan who immigrated to Indore State, Indore Residency (now in Madhya Pradesh), British India in the mid-1800s. The Diler Jung award of the Holkar era was given to his ancestor Abdul Rashid Khan, a deputy inspector general of the state of Indore. Khan's father, Dogra Rajput Baldev Singh Charak, hails from Jammu in Jammu and Kashmir; his mother, a Marathi, is from Maharashtra. Khan's mother works as a housewife. Khan speaks Marathi as well.
In the 1988 film Biwi Ho To Aisi, Khan starred in a supporting role before making his acting debut.
