Mahira Khan Is Disappointed About Missing SRK’s ‘Raees’ Promotions
Mahira Khan is reportedly quite bummed out about not being able to join the promotional activity around Raees, thanks to India’s ban on Pakistani artists. The actress apparently told Express Tribune in an interview that she’s sad and disappointed because she put in a lot of effort into the Shah Rukh Khan starrer.
Mahira plays Shah Rukh Khan’s love interest in the film. Shah Rukh Khan and producer Ritesh Sadhwani met Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray in December last year, to ensure a smooth release of the film. SRK reportedly promised MNS that Mahira will not be a part of the film’s pre-release promotions and that he will not be working with Pakistani actors in future. Mahira wasn’t candid but she did say that the more she speaks, the more her film might get into trouble.
The Shah Rukh Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan gangster thriller releases in theatres on 25 January.
