Raees Producers Keeping Mahira Khan But In A Small Role Only
India Pakistan recent tension is affecting Bollywood movies again. Mahira Khan was all set to make her Bollywood debut with Raees. She will still make her Bollywood debut. But her role in her debut Hindi film will be very small. This news will disappoint Mahira’s Indian fans.
“Mahira is an attractive and popular Pak actress and Raees is her big-ticket Bollywood launch. But while she does play Shah Rukh’s love interest, it is not really a romantic film. Her role is like Parveen Babi’s in Yash Chopra’s 1975 crime-drama Deewaar. This one revolves around the conflict between Shah Rukh Khan who plays a bootlegger, Raees Alam, and ACP Ghulam Patel enacted by Nawaz who is on his trail. So, it wasn’t difficult to trim her role which has been done with the intention of not hurting public sentiment,“ a Bollywood insider shared this information.
Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan became popular in India with their TV series Humsafar. Fawad played a small role in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. But fans loved him in that small role. Mahira Khan was very excited about working with Shah Rukh Khan in Raees. But sadly, she will not be able to promote the film in India. Raees will release on January 26th, 2017.
