The beautiful Pakistani actress Mahira Khan made her Bollywood debut with B-town Baadshah Shah Rukh Khan in Raees. The actress said that when she saw the movie she did not feel any special and thought it wasn't fair on her part.
“Even though the teaser said introducing Mahira Khan, I felt like being punched in the stomach when there was no such credit in the film itself. Then when it was released, I was banned in India and the film was banned in Pakistan”, said Mahira during a media interaction.
However, she says that she is not affected by the failure."It is a big thing to work in a foreign film. I pray I get my introducing credit when I work in an Iranian film. Failure is knowledge and knowledge is the success. So it is a win-win. We actors know how to paint smiles on our faces and carry on, I did too”.
Mahira also mentioned that her grandmother always wanted her study medicine as she was good in studies, but like many, she too always wanted to become an actor.
"I was dreaming of wearing a sari and dancing like Madhuri Dixit. I also used to dream of working with Shah Rukh Khan. I did nothing to make it happen. I only dreamed and believed in my dreams," the actress said.
