Raees star Mahira Khan has called the Indian ban on Pakistani actors ‘unfortunate.’ She also says Shah Rukh Khan is ‘magic’ on the film sets. Only lucky women get to romance Shah Rukh Khan onscreen. And the luckiest get the opportunity in their very first film. Mahira Khan, SRK’s leading lady in Raees, could have had a dream debut but for the Shiv Sena. She has been barred from promoting Raees in India.
Mahira is disappointed that Raees is not releasing in Pakistan. “With this ban, it’s unfortunate. Six months ago, I was getting a new script every day. Cut to six months later and producers are saying there’s no scope, let’s go back to dramas.”
