After Uri attacks led to the ban on Pakistani artists, Mahira Khan had to leave India and was also kept away from Raees promotions in the country. But, we finally got to see the lovely actress in Dubai for the promotions of her upcoming film.
And while we all saw SRK promoting the film alone in India, the makers and SRK himself came up with a perfect solution to make Mahira a part of film’s promotional events in Dubai. So, after much ado, Mahira finally joined the Raees star cast in the UAE just 3 days before the release of the film and was all smiles.
Mahira also took to social media and shared a picture of her from the Dubai promotions and wrote: #Raees #srk #mahirakhan #3daystogo. According to reports, Mahira also met and hugged Gauri Khan and is happy to join SRK and Nawazuddin in the UAE.
But not being an active part of Raees promotions has made Mahira sad and in an interview with the Pakistani daily Dawn, the actress was earlier quoted as saying:
Yes, I’m grateful, but it’s something I have worked for! Why shouldn’t I feel it? Just because I’m an actor? Just because it’s a film? Just because it seems like fluff? I also want to promote the film. I also want to be in an interview with Shah Rukh Khan talking about it. Why not? Why is it I get told that that’s asking for too much? It isn’t! It is my right. This was also my film.
The statement clearly showed her disappointment and speaking about the film not releasing in Pakistan, Mahira further added:
I want my country to see this. I want everybody to see it, every person in the world. My friends keep saying you did it, it’s enough, you can just keep it in a box somewhere…I do that, but there’s a part of me that says, no, I want everybody to see my blood sweat and tears for these two years, because it’s been tough and I want people to see it even if I fail at it.
Well, right now Mahira is on a promotional spree and is all smiles to join the film’s crew in Dubai. Raees will hit the screens on January 25 this year.
