Mahira Khan is on a roll these days. The Pakistani actress has been enjoying extensive coverage in both India and Pakistan, after she was cast alongside Shah Rukh Khan in a Bollywood flick. Like her Pakistani contemporaries Fawad Khan and Ali Zafar, Mahira has also become a popular Pakistani celebrity among the Indian masses. Also, just like her Pakistani contemporaries, Mahira has also flatly refused to shoot an intimate scene with her co-star!
According to a source, Indian website Bollywoodlife.com reported that the Pakistani actress refused to shoot an intimate scene in which Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s character forced himself on her. This is what the source reported:-
Mahira’s character was Nawaz’s glam doll in the film before Miyanbhai swept her off her feet. And that wasn’t a very happy relationship. The sex scene is pretty edgy, dark and somewhat brutal which has Nawaz forcing himself on her”.
The scene was a little too unsettling ans difficult for Mahira Khan, who flatly refused to shoot it. She is, however, not the first Pakistani celebrity who has refused to shoot an intimate scene in a Bollywood flick. Pakistani actor Fawad Khan also refused to shoot intimate scenes with Alia Bhatt for Kapoor and Sons.
Raees is set to be released in 2016 and might have a clash with Salman Khan’s Sultan at the box office.
