MUMBAI – Pakistani actress Mahira Khan will be joining Shah Rukh Khan in the upcoming movie ‘Raees’, PakistanTribe.com reported.
Produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, the film, which will see the ‘Humsafar’ star playing the wife of a gangster ( Shah Rukh Khan), will also feature critically-acclaimed actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a cop.
The ‘Neeyat’ artist said that she was neither waiting for a perfect script from Bollywood nor had she read many.
There’s always a bit of pressure when performing with such good actors and she’s a fan of both Shah Rukh and Siddiqui, she further added.
Mahira further mentioned that Pakistani actors have no edge over Indian actors as only a good actor has an edge over a weak actor or a hardworking actor has an edge over a lazy actor but Nationality has nothing to do with it.
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who will star with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan and acclaimed Indian actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the forthcoming film ‘Raees’, is all praise for them, and says now he would have to pull up his socks to perform as well as the duo. “Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan are there in the film (Raees).
Both of them are very accomplished actors. I think the cast is really wonderful,” Shah Rukh said here Monday at the launch of Dabboo Ratnani’s annual calendar.
“Now I would have to excel and perform like them,”, added the actor, who is set to join the film’s shoot by March end. Mahira, who became popular in India with her successful TV show ‘Humsafar’, will be seen as Shah Rukh’s leading lady in ‘Raees’.
