It is such a difficult phase for Raees’s leading lady Mahira Khan. On one side, she has done her first Bollywood flick with Superstar Shah Rukh Khan releasing on 25th January. But on the other hand, she cannot even fly down to India to promote the film. This is because of the Uri attack last year after which Pakistani actors were banned from working in India.
Mahira Khan on Raees Promotion
Some time back, SRK met Raj Thackeray. SRK assured him not to work with Pakistani actors in future and that Mahira would not come down to India to promote as well. But the situation is worse for Mahira as there is a possibility of not releasing the film in Pakistan as well. The first Indian movie she stars, she will not be able to see herself on a big screen. How unfair to her.
Talking to a Pakistani newspaper, Dawn, Mahira told that she always wanted to see “Introducing Mahira Khan” on a big screen. Mahira said that before the attack she used to get offers every day but suddenly it all changed. Mahira wants her film to be released in Pakistan and that her country sees her work. She intends to promote the movie in India like the one other actor do, as it is her film as well.
