Pakistani actress Mahira Khan reveals she was offered many Indian web series but scared to sign
Mumbai : There are many artists from Pakistan who are also very popular in India. Be it their films or TV series, there are many celebrities whose fans like their acting. One such actress is Mahira Khan. She made her Bollywood debut in the year 2017 with Shahrukh Khan’s Raees. However Pakistani actors have been banned in Bollywood for the past few years. Mahira has expressed disappointment over this.
Speaking to YouTube channel Film Companion, Mahira said that she received offers for web series that would air on the Indian digital platform but she declined due to fear. Mahira will soon be seen narrating short stories in a series of Zee5. She said that at that time I got offers for many other series. I don’t know if anyone will understand this when I tell you, I was scared. I was really scared. It wasn’t about what people would say, I didn’t even know if I wanted to go there or not. Some stories were amazing and I did not want to leave it.’
Mahira further said that ‘But I was scared and I have no shame in accepting it. Now I am looking a little more. You do not want to let something happen that affects your choice politically. So I don’t think I will do it now and I hope that we will cooperate soon whether it is digital medium or any other.’
