Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan is gearing up for her dream Bollywood debut opposite none other than a Bollywood superstar, Shah Rukh Khan in Raees which is slated to have a Republic Day 2017 release in India.
Recently, at an event in Pakistan, Mahira enacted her mother’s expression when she told her that she is paired opposite SRK in Raees.
In the video posted, she is seen saying that when she told her mother the film is with Shah Rukh Khan, she started crying out of mere disbelieve, shock and surprise all together. Her amma as the Humsafar actor calls her said she is lying and Mahira had to make her believe that she is truly part of Raees with the King Khan Bollywood.

Amidst all the rumors of her being replaced following the strained relationship between India and Pakistan by the end of September, when the Uri attacks took place, leaving 19 of our military personnel dead.
The producer of the movie, Farhan Akhtar stepped forward to put the rumors to rest once and for all and said that the 33 years old Pakistani beauty is still very much a part of the film that is directed by Rahul Dholakia and produced by Excel Entertainment.
Raees was originally scheduled for Eid last July but was postponed to next January to avoid a clash with Salman Khan‘s Sultan. It will still be competing with another film – Hrithik Roshan‘s Kaabil also releases alongside it on the Republic Day weekend.
