Pak actress slammed for praising Shah Rukh Khan

Mahira Khan is one of the most sought-after actresses in Pakistan. Due to the ban on Pakistan actors in Indian cinema, fans have not seen many of their beloved stars on the big screen.

However, it looks like the problem runs deeper than political gains as recently, the actress was slammed by a Pakistani political leader for simply praising Shah Rukh Khan.

Leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) Dr Afnan Ullah Khan took to Twitter to opine about Mahira Khan and Loose Talk fame Anwar Maqsood. While he called the latter a ‘cursed character full of prejudice’, the senator claimed that Mahira Khan ‘flatters Indian actors for money’.

These tweets came days after the actress reportedly praised her Raees co-star Shah Rukh Khan. According to a report from Times Of India, Mahira Khan appeared on ‘An Evening with Mahira Khan’ event which was organized by Arts Council of Pakistan in Karachi.

According to The Express Tribune, at the event, she touched upon various topics including her political stance. When asked about the political party she supports, Mahira Khan referenced Shah Rukh Khan’s latest film Pathaan. She also said that she was ‘in love with’ SRK and would think about working with him.

She also recalled Shah Rukh Khan joking about her nose while shooting. She described him as ‘sweet’ and ‘humble’ on the sets and how she was inspired by him._Agencies
