Mahira Khan, who has shared screen space with Shah Rukh Khan in Raees had to away from the promotions as Pakistani actors were banned in Bollywood. Since political heat between India and Pakistan created agitation, the government has come up with a few safety measurements to elude unanticipated issues. This movie has been directed by Rahul Dholakia and it is all set to hit the screens by end of this month.
With recent media interaction to BBC Urdu, 32-year-old actress Mahira shared that “I have put a lot of efforts in the project and feels bad that I am unable to promote movie in India. I feel bad in this regard. Raees is very special in my career.” This movie is said to be an action thriller and Shah Rukh Khan is seen playing a role of famous Gujarati don Abdul Latif while Mahira plays the role of his wife.
After Uri Attacks, Shiva Sena has demanded filmmakers in Bollywood to away from Pakistani actors and SRK has accepted to do it. Hence, they are unable to come and promote the film in India. According to reports, Shah Rukh Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is going to promote the movie in Dubai very soon.
But, no official reports that Mahira will be joining them or not.
