WEB DESK: Our very own beauty Mahira Khan, who is all set to step into Bolly town with her debut Raees alongsideShah Rukh Khan, has left lasting impressions on the mega stars’ mind and heart during the shoot of the movie.
SRK admitted the fact that he misses the Pakistani beauty post Raees shoot.
“First I’ll talk professionally. Mahira is a really fine actor. And she’s very different. She’s very quiet. A Hindi film is a world in itself and she’s fortunate to have come in a film like Raees, which is still a little more realistic than the likes of Dilwale or Happy New Year,” SRK told Instep.
He went on to praise Mahira and said that despite being a big star, she is very adaptable to the environment and situation.
He said: “What’s nice about her is that she’s so unassuming. She’s such a big star but she’s very unassuming on the set and she’s ready to adapt to the situation, which is very interesting. The bigger the star you are, the more nervous you get; I still get very nervous. I hide my nervousness with my flamboyance. But Mahira’s really, really nice as an actor.”
He also revealed that Mahira brought him a special gift from Pakistan. “Personally, she’s really sweet. She got chappals for me. I keep troubling her though. I keep teasing her that ‘you’re from that country’ and you know, ‘don’t mess with us here’ and she’s really sweet and supporting. I miss her.”
Raees, which was earlier scheduled to hit cinemas on Eid, will now be released a few weeks later as the makers have postponed the release date.
