Mahira is terrific in Raees: Shah Rukh Khan

Published: January 20, 2017


Bollywood numero uno Shah Rukh says his Raees co-star Mahira Khan is a powerhouse of talent.

Heaping praise on the Pakistani actor, King Khan told The Indian Express, “She is an amazing actor, and so beautiful. Even before working on Raees, she was already an established star, it is not a new world that she has come in.”

Rahul Dholakia helped me at every step, Mahira Khan says

“She is terrific in the movie, you will see her more as her character, she is a very talented actor. I wish her all the best for the future.” Shah Rukh added.

King Khan also opened up about how Raees was different from the roles he had essayed earlier. “I am playing a character in the midst of a world which is cent per cent bad, he does bad things himself but somewhere down the line, we try to present a human quality to him without justifying his actions,” he said.

    I find it disgusting that Mahira was treated in an insulting way ,she is a star and extremely classy person ,the kind of comments one reads by some full of hate people living in neighbouring country makes me sad ,I think pak actors should refrain from acting there till the neighbours learn to treat them with respect after all your dignity is of utmost importance Recommend

    @Srehman: Pak actors or non-state actors are not welcome in India. They have been kicked out forever. There is no respect in begging and thats what they come here to do.Recommend
