Mahira and Shahrukh spotted together — fans overjoyed !
The duo was pictured at the Ahmadabad airport heading to Mumbai.
Raees, starring Mahira and Shahrukh, has not yet released but its frenzy has already made the pair talk of the town.
Starring beside a megastar such as Shah Rukh Khan does not come easy, you have to turn heads and prove critics right. According to reports, Mahira beat out renowned Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi for the role!
According to the post, the first choice for Raees, an Indian movie starring Shah Rukh Khan was Huma but that was before Mahira was on board.
“Huma Qureshi. They thought Huma would fit the bill and also they wanted a fresh pairing of sorts. But then, they got Mahira on board because the character required the actress to have a certain kind of mannerism and lingo and being a Pakistani, Mahira totally nailed it,” read a post on an Indian website.
