Mahira Khan made her Bollywood debut with none other than King Khan himself in Raees.

While the movie was not cleared by the Censor Board to screen in Pakistan, SRK-Mahira starrer did extremely well worldwide.

Therefore, when Bollywood Life went on to determine which actor did the best in the first quarter of 2017, Mahira beat the famous divas of Bollywood.

According to the report, the Bol actor starrer, Raees, did exceptionally well with minting over $21 million only in India. The huge box-office collection escalates Mahira to the pinnacle.

The second and third position holders are Yami Gautam with Kaabil and Huma Qureshi with Johny LLB 2 respectively.

Dear Indian media, don’t hate Mahira Khan just because she’s Pakistani

The Ho Mann Jahan star beat Bollywood ace actors such as Alia Bhatt with Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya and Deepika Padukone with her Hollywood debut, xXx: Return of the Xander Cage takes fourth and fifth position in the list.

However, she might not be able to top the list for a long time due to the ban on Pakistani artists in India.

Be it beginner’s luck or not, her fans wait with bated breath to see how this success translates into more and better roles for Pakistan’s leading female star.
