Pakistani actress Mahira Khan had been all excited about being the first Pak actress to be invited to walk the red carpet at Cannes 2018. But her worst nightmare came true when her outfit for the evening on day 1 didn’t reach her on time. The Verna actress was seen panicking minutes before it was time for her to get ready for her first evening at Cannes 2018, with her red carpet outfit still stuck at customs, waiting for clearance. She also shared a video, asking her fans to pray for her that her dress reaches on time so that she can get ready and look her best.
But despite all the delay and panic attacks and last minute running around and fittings, the actress managed to look stunning in a black gown and bright, bold pout. Later, taking to Instagram, Mahira posted a picture of her from the red carpet and called it an Ode to all the people who have inspired her. She wrote, “Ode to the people I have loved so much.. and have inspired me since I was a little girl. Starting from my Ama to Minaal and Rooha… down to all my girls back home in Pakistan.”
There was also a moment at the red carpet when India’s Sonam Kapoor and Pakistan’s Mahira appeared one after the other and it was a sight to behold. While Sonam was in a pastel hued outfit by Ralph and Russo and reminded everyone that she is a ‘just married’ woman by channeling her bridal avatar, Mahira represented Pakistan with a confident gait at the prestigious international platform.
