WEB DESK: Mahira’s role in her debut Bollywood film is yet again a question mark as the latest buzz was she will not be going back to India to promote the movie. After much speculation, the final verdict on the question os finally out and it will not please her fans here in Pakistan.
While MNS has made it clear for any Bollywood movie to never have any Pakistani actor featured in it, it was stated that the party will not have any issues with the release of the movies that were scheduled before the Uri attack, SRK’s Raees being on of them.
However, SRK recently met MNS chief Raj Thackeray, and promised him to not fly Mahira out to India for the promotional activities for Raees, nor will he ever work with another Pakistani star.
Confirming the same to indianexpress.com, Amey Khopkar of MNS said, “There was news in the media for past one week that SRK is going to get Mahira Khan to India for film promotions. So he came here to meet Raj saheb to tell that Mahira Khan is not coming to India for any kind of film promotion and he will also not cast any Pakistani artistes in future.”
Amey also clarified that there would be no protests from MNS as far as Raees is concerned. “In the meeting between Raj Saheb and the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Producers’ Guild that took place in October, it was decided all the films that have already been shot and has Pakistani actors in it will be allowed to release and going forward no Indian producer, director or actor will work with Pakistani artistes. SRK too agreed to the same in his meeting with Raj Saheb.”
Looks like Raees is now set to have a hassle free release after Raj Thackeray green-lighting it, without leading lady promoting it.
