She is the one of extremely few from Pakistan who have rattled the Indian media industry and forced them to consider.
Shahrukh Khan himself could not refrain himself from complimenting her. He said, “What’s nice about her is that she is extremely unassuming. She is such a big star but she is very unassuming on the set and she is ready readily to adapt to the situation, which is very interesting. The bigger the star you are, the more nervous you get; I still get very nervous. I hide my nervousness with my flamboyance. But Mahira is really, really nice as an actor.”
2. Pakistan’s first brand ambassador for L’Oreal:
Mahira Khan stormed in style on the final day of Pakistan’s Bridal Couture Week as she was announced the Brand Ambassador of L’Oreal Paris, the first one from Pakistan. “I am very honoured and very humbled that I am the first Pakistani brand ambassador for L’Oreal,” she added.
