Pakistani actress Mahira Khan is all set to make her Bollywood debut in Rahul Dholakia’s much awaited film Raees with non other then the Badshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing issue between India and Pakistan, Mahira can’t be a part of Raees’s promotion. She seems quite sad about the fact that she can’t be a part of Raees’s promotion and join the team in India. Mahira showed her regret in a recent tweet:
The tweet shows how intensely she wants to join the promotion activities and how desperate she is to visit India. In a recent interview by a Pakistani media she confessed that Raees is a very important film of her life. Although this 32-year-old Pakistani diva had done many Pakistani drams and films, Raees is her very first film in India.
While giving an interview to BBC Urdu, she said, “Though I have put my heart in other films too, this one is very special to me. I have worked outside of my country. Films that I grew up watching, the actor [Shah Rukh Khan] I dreamt about, I got the opportunity to work with. Of course I wish I could be there to promote the film and talk more about it but this is something which is not in my control.”
Mahira had started her career as VJ and later worked in many Pakistani dramas. Humsafar, a television series starring Mahira and Fawad Khan, was the first major milestone for her. With her extraordinary acting and dialogue delivery Mahira became overnight star from this series.
