Her parents divorced each other when she was six or seven years old. She has one younger brother, Liaqat Ali Khan who is a gold medalist in badminton, one half-brother Tariq Khan, and two half-sisters Suraiya Khan and Natasha Khan (better known as Bat for Lashes, a British singer-songwriter). Her grand mother Zarina Ghaznavi, grand father Jugal Kishore Mehra, aunt Shaheena Ghaznavi and great grand mother Anwari Begum were all actors and Squash players Jahangir Khan and Torsam Khan are her paternal uncles and singers Sajid–Wajid are her maternal uncles.

Agha lived in London until the age of 7, when she moved to India with her family. She studied at Jankidevi Public School in Mumbai till 6th grade. After that, the family lived in New Jersey, United States, till Agha completed 10th grade. From the ages of 16 to 18, Agha lived in Dubai and studied at the Dubai American Scientific School.
Agha made her film debut in Yash Raj's romantic thriller Aurangzeb opposite Arjun Kapoor and Prithviraj Sukumaran. The film revolves around the twin brothers who find themselves caught in a quagmire of sex and lies. The Times of India wrote about Agha's performance, "Sasha is petite, pug-nosed and has a nice figure. But her portrayal of the golden-hearted whore, like the one Parveen Babi played in Deewaar, is insipid."
Agha next appeared in Anand Kumar's 2014 romantic thriller Desi Kattey alongside Suniel Shetty, Jay Bhanushali, and Tia Bajpai. She portrayed a physiotherapist Paridhi Rathore. The film received negative reviews.
Agha's main vocal influence was her mother, who she said was "passionate about singing", and helped develop her interest in singing. She used her vocal talent early in her school life. Her first recording, the song "Barbaadiyaan" along with Ram Sampath in the 2013 film Aurangzeb. The song received mixed reviews from critics, and was a commercial success in India.
