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.
