Pakistani actress Mahira Khan who started her new innings in Bollywood, is already an established actress in Pakistan. She started her career as VJ. She has worked with MTV Pakistan and Aag TV as VJ before moving on to her acting career. Her first break in the film industry came with the critically acclaimed film “Bol”.
But, after the act which made Pakistani actors leave India, this is what Raees director has to say!
“Whether it was Shah Rukh Khan or Rahul or Ritesh Batra or Farhan Akhtar, they all have been so amazing. At the end of the day; it’s about films, which is bigger than all of us combined. The film needed to be released. The film had to do well. They were all amazing. They still are.”
Raees director Rahul Dholakia came across the video and retweeted, gushing about the Pakistani actor:
“So sweet ! Somewhere I feel We have wronged her. our people forgot that she is an artist, not the enemy ! we took away her right as an actor ! Unfair. Mahira Khan you are wonderful and thank you for being a part of Raees.
