The year 2017 may not have been too favourable for Mahira Khan – what with her finding her ground again after fighting at least three controversies. Earlier this year, her Bollywood debut in Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees had become the bone of contention. Later, videos of her and Ranbir Kapoor from an awards show in Dubai gave rise to ample speculations. This was soon followed by pictures of their much talked about and judged about smoke break in New York that made headlines. Her latest film Verna, too had to fight for a smooth release since some easily outraged had a problem with the content of the film, that revolves around a rape survivor, played by Mahira.
But now, as we near the close of 2017, the Pakistani actress is kicked about 2018. Talking about the same in an interview at the recently held Masala Awards 2017 in Dubai, Mahira said, “I am looking forward to 2018. I have some interesting projects lined up. I am doing a comedy film for the first time ever. I am nervous about excited as well. It is called ‘Saat Din Mohabbat In’ for now.” But what is more exciting is that she is coming together with her Humsafar co-star Fawad Khan once again in 2018.
“Yes, I am super thrilled about Maula Jatt, which is a Punjabi film and I unite with Fawad Khan after Humsafar.” The two are coming together after six years and she is already feeling the pressure. “We are expected to create the same magic like Humsafar, but the two projects – Maula Jatt and Humsafar are totally different,” she revealed.
While that is about her work in Pakistan, the actress also hopes that she is able to return to Bollywood and do some project in India as well. “I hope. The future generations should be able to see and collaborate and see peaceful times ahead,” Mahira signed off. Well we hope so too. Wouldn’t it be an absolute treat to see Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan come together in a Dharma or Yash Raj kind of a romantic-drama? Inshallah!
