Popular Pakistani actress Mahira Khan will be finally joining Shah Rukh Khan for his upcoming film ‘Raees’ after the end of the monsoon season. The actress has gained a lot of popularity after her appearance on the show ‘Humsafar’ on Zee TV’s channel Zindagi. She will be a part of the second schedule of the film, directed by Rahul Dholakia.
A source close to her said “Yes, there was problem, and concerns were expressed among the film’s producers Farhan Akhtar Ritesh Sidhwani and team, as to how Mahira could be expected to be present in Mumbai when required.”
It was being said that the actress was having trouble getting her visa for the film because of which, her joining the shoot could be delayed. The source added “Mahira joins Raees for the second schedule from August. She has already interacted briefly with Shah Rukh who instantly put her at ease when he spoke to her. Mahira is a huge SRK fan. She can’t wait to start shooting with the superstar.”
Directed by Rahul Dholakia, ‘Raees’ stars SRK, Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin Siddique. The film is scheduled to release during ‘Eid’ next year.
