2016 was the year when Pakistani actors in Bollywood were sent back to Pakistan.
Mahira Khan, who is debuting with Shah Rukh Khan‘s Raees was in the middle of a lot of reportage and controversy. Earlier rumours started doing the rounds that the makers of the film are going to be replacing her, but the trailer of the movie set the record straight. Further, SRK apparently visited Raj Thackeray personally to ensure the smooth release of his film by promising that Mahira will not be part of the promotional rounds.
However, according to a report in Mid-Day, Mahira will be available for press interactions and interviews on Skype.
Well, that’s… ummm… something!
