Mahira Khan & Shah Rukh Khan hot pics in Raees | trailer, mp3 song download, full movie watch online
Talent from across the border continues to be sought after in Bollywood. After Fawad Khan (Khoobsurat) and Humaima Malick (Raja Natwarlal), yet another attractive Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan is slated to make her debut in Hindi cinema. This Pak import won notices worldwide for her performance in Shoaib Mansoor’s ‘Bol’ (2011), just like Humaima did.
She visited Mumbai last month after her television serial Humsafar gained popularity 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 Shah Rukh 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 sweetheart 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.
After Sonam Kapoor and Kriti Sanon’s names were floating as the probable contenders to becoming the next Shah Rukh Khan heroine, it seems Pakistani actress Mahira Khan has been roped in to play the leading lady for SRK’s next film – Raees.
The Rahul Dholakia film will be backed by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s production house and will revolve around the life of a Gujarati bootlegger. While Farhan was supposed to play the second lead, essaying the role of a cop, it is now confirmed that Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been roped in to play the role. Hugely anticipated and one of the most awaited SRK films, it would be nice to see SRK romance the Pakistani actress on screen.
Mahira, who is also a VJ has her own talk show in Pakistan and has received a lot of critical acclaim for her performance in Bol which also starred Raja Natwarlal heroine Humaima Malik. Recently, she hit the Indian screens with her television serial Humsafar bringing in huge TRPs. Just like actor Fawad Khan, Mahira too has begun taking baby steps in Bollywood now.
With a debut opposite King Khan himself, it definitely could not have been a better way to start her Bollywood career. All that needs to be seen is how the new pair look together on screen. The film is tentatively supposed to go on floors in February next year and the team plans to wrap the shoot by June next year.
