Mahira Khan’s debut in Bollywood
Mahira Khan made her debut in Hindi film industry with ‘Raees’ which remains to be her last. The actress has been away from Indian cinema ever since controversy arose surrounding Pakistani celebs working in Indian films.
Earlier in an interview with IANS, Mahira Khan also spoke about her family’s reaction after Raees. She said, “The big fear was people will come to watch the movie and shout for Shah Rukh, not for me. When my family watched the movie, they were also screaming for him.”
Raees is an action thriller film directed by Rahul Dholakia and produced by Gauri Khan, Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under their banners Red Chillies Entertainment and Excel Entertainment. It stars Shah Rukh Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan in the lead roles.
