Female version of ‘Raees’ with Mahira Khan




Mahira Khan, the star across the borders, has the star power but meanwhile she is humble and this is the root of her success. Many times she has talked about Shah Rukh Khan as she is the leading lady of the most anticipated movie Raees but still she is a fan of him. For her, he is still The Shah Rukh Khan, Bollywood incredible whose eminence is an implausible degree, as it is for a lot of us.

She was stating in an interview that “He’s an experience. You have to experience Shah Rukh Khan,”

But being a fan herself, she doesn’t consider herself low to the King of Bollywood. Actually, the star shared that she, in fact, desires to do something grainy for her subsequent venture. “I want to do a Raees; well, a female version of Raees — the character. Something dark.” She added.

Revealing much more regarding working with Shah Rukh Khan, Mahira told that “I felt like Alice in Wonderland, actually. It’s quite amazing to see someone who is that big a star and the way he is on set.”

She continued by saying that “Having worked with him so closely… In Raees, he was in this character that was scary because he would come out looking like this gangster. He just looked like… Raees. And he was so in character. The way he did his lines, the way he was doing it all, it was a treat to watch him as a fan and of course as a co-actor.”

Mahira made it endless times much hard for her fans and also for Shah Rukh to linger for the highly-anticipated film.

Raees disappointed its fans when its release was postponed until January next year. But Mahira revealed that she is in the course of finalizing not one but a “few” projects.

She shared that “Because I thought Raees was coming out in July I stopped taking any work. I couldn’t do some amazing things that came my way. I had to let go some amazing films. Now, I have decided I have to work,”

She added by saying that “I am going completely crazy. I need to be on set. I need to be acting. I need to be reading a script. So I am looking into a few really good things.”
