Mahira Khan — who appeared in her Bollywood debut Raees movie opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan — got cold feet and refused to do a racy scene with Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the film. The movie will release on January 25th.
Nawaz plays a character with grey shades in Raees movie. According to a report published in DNA, the scene is pretty edgy, dark, and somewhat brutal, showing Nawaz forcing himself on her. Reportedly Mahira was disturbed by it and refused to do the scene.
Mahira Khan in Raees Movie
“Mahira’s character is Nawaz’s glam doll in the film before Miyanbhai (SRK) sweeps her off her feet. Nawaz and Mahira’s relationship in Raees movie is not a happy one and there is a love-making scene between them”, the website reports.
Elegant TV host and actress made her cross-border fans go gaga with her stint in the TV series ‘Humsafar’. In the series, Mahira played Khirad opposite Fawad Khan. Mahira began her career as VJ at the age of 16 with MTV Pakistan.
Today, she is one of the most sought after presenters in her country. Mahira was crowned the title of Most Beautiful Woman in Pakistan in 2012.
Before Mahira — who became a household name as Khirad of Humsafar — other Pakistani actors Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan have also refused to do intimate scenes. Fawad Khan refused to go mushy with Alia Bhatt in their upcoming ‘Kapoor & Sons’.
Fawad was even reported to have refused the movie ‘Battle Of Bittora’ opposite Sonam Kapoor citing the intimate scenes. However, he later denied this and said that he had to pull off from the movie due to date issues.
“The issue of kissing is nothing and just a personal choice for now,” said Fawad. He added that rumours about him were the result of impostors on social networking sites, among other things.
“Working on Kapoor and Sons was a lot of fun. The energy was great and the cast and crew all got along really well, like a family. Sid, Alia and Shakun are fantastic people to work and hang out with”, he told Malala magazine.
Shah Rukh and Mahira Khan-starrer Raees movie has been making headlines ever since it was first announced and was expected to clash with Salman Khan’s Sultan on Eid.
In an interview, Mahira revealed that she grew up watching Bollywood movies and decided to become an actress after watching the ‘dhak dhak girl’ on screen.
Shahrukh Khan once again comes up with all praises for Pakistani acting diva. The King of Bollywood said while replying to a Pakistani fan of question about how he did find Mahira, “She is very earnest and is working extremely hard. A bit nervous too but very very good at what she does. It’s a pleasure”.
The fan thanked in return to Shahrukh Khan by tweeting, “Thank u @imsrk u made my life… @TheMahiraKhan”. Its always cause a controversy to cross the border because Pakistani actresses forget everything behind which she has behind the border after crossing the bars.
Mawra Hocane is also among such Pakistani actors who has disappointed her fans with her first Bollywood look. Even she also said that no one in Bollywood asks you to anything which you do not want to do. So I don’t know who asked Mawra to wear such racy dress in her debut Bollywood look.
