Mahira Khan dropped from movie 'Raees': Indian media lyrics, song mp3 download, family, wedding pictures, age, height, weight, biography
No official confirmation came from the producers or even Shahrukh Khan yet.
(Web Desk) – In the escalating tension between India and Pakistan, the stunning actress Mahira Khan has been replaced in Shahrukh Khan-starrer Bollywood movie Raees, Indian media reported.
The action was taken after a ban on Pakistani actors in India was called on by many extremist parties while Pakistani cinemas also decided to stop screening of Bollywood films nationwide.
The hunt for new actress to play Mahira’s role opposite Shahrukh Khan is on as the producers need to find her in two weeks.
“It was a very painful decision for producer Ritesh Sidhwani to take. The pressure to replace her had been building up for months. It reached a crescendo after the Uri attacks. It came to a point where it became impossible to shoot with any Pakistani. People suggested all kinds of solutions to the impasse, including shooting in Dubai. But it didn’t seem viable. Now, Mahira has unfortunately been relieved of her duties,” DNA quoted a source as saying.
However, no official confirmation came from the producers or even Shahrukh Khan.
The heart-throbbing Pakistani actor Fawad Khan’s scenes were also omitted from Sushant Singh Rajput’s ‘M.S.Dhoni: The Untold Story’ in order to avoid controversies.
It was also learnt that Saif Ali Khan is likely to play the role of Fawad Khan in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Earlier, Mahira Khan took to her Facebook fan page and urged the people to only stand for peace and love.
She said that she is not a supporter of war and only wishes a life where her child can live without being victimized of terrorism.
