PAKISTANI ACTRESS MAHIRA KHAN TO CAST OPPOSITE SHAHRUKH KHAN IN ‘RAEES’

Talent across the border continue to be sought after in Bollywood. Mahira Khan who had won notices worldwide for her performance in Shoaib Mansoor’s ‘Bol’ is now being cast opposite to Shahrukh Khan in the movie ‘Raees’.

The attractive Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan is slated to make her debut in Hindi Cinema after Fawad Khan (Khoobsurat) and Humaima Mallick(Raja Natwarlal).She is currently seen in serial ‘Humsafar’ with Fawad Khan which is telecast on channel ‘zindagi’. She visited Mumbai last month after her television serial Humsafar gained popularity in India and dropped subtle hints of the Hindi filmmakers whom she may consider working with. Obviously, the ones who were the quickest to move in were producers Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, who finalised the VJ-turned-actress for ‘Raees’ being directed by Rahul Dholakia. The film has Shahrukh Khan playing a don and is likely to have Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing a cop. A source said that SRK had dropped in at the audition to meet Mahira.

The actress is married to her college friend Ali Askari. And though she is based out of Karachi, the articulate girl with the porcelain complexion travels extensively. India will be a long haul destination for now, we guess.
