While this was her big ticket launch in Bollywood, Pakistani actress Mahira Khan is thoroughly disappointed at not being able to be a part of the promotional activities of her maiden Bollywood project ‘Raees’. With, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) calling out for a ban on Pakistani actors after the Uri attacks on 18th September leading to death of 19 Indian soldiers, all the Pakistani actors have left the Indian shores.
On being asked about her feelings on not being able to come down to India and promote her movie, Mahira said that, she was feeling totally dejected as, she has put in lots of efforts and hard work in the movie and is now not able to enjoy the fruits of her labor.
Recently, actor Shah Rukh Khan was seen making a late night visit to MNS chief Raj Thackeray’s house and assured him of keeping Mahira away from the promotions of the movie in a bid to ensure the smooth release of ‘Raees’. Karan Johar’s last release ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ too faced similar problems due to Pakistani actor Fawad Khan’s presence in the movie.
