ISLAMABAD - Mahira Khan is riding high on the success of her latest venture, 7 Din Mohabbat In (7DMI), which emerged as the highest grossing local release this Eid.
While this was her second project with her Ho Mann Jahaan co-star Shaheryar Munawar, whom she lovingly calls Munna, Mahira is now looking forward to work with another Pakistani superstar.
“I have never worked with Fahad Mustafa,” Mahira told BBC Urdu. “I really want to work with him but there just wasn’t any time. I can’t even begin to tell you the amount of projects the two of us have been offered together but the timing was never right.”
She added, “But there’s mutual respect. I respect him, I like him a lot as an actor. I like that he supports people and it’s really imperative to me that a person should support others, and our industry for that matter.”
Talking about her “most favourite co-star” Shaheryar, the Bol starlet revealed the two are like “brothers”. She said, “I know Sherry’s deepest darkest secrets. But we have a romantic relationship in the movie and it works.”
Mahira’s other 7DMI co-star and absolute favourite, Javed Sheikh is currently busy writing an autobiography.
The veteran actor plans to add a chapter in the book based on Mahira’s character Neeli from the film.
“Oh, Javed sahab always has some great tales to tell! He must write a book. I had asked him to write something on his life when he told me that he’s already in the process of writing on,” the Raees star said.
Javed and Mahira found themselves in the middle of a baseless controversy at the Lux Style Awards this year, which forced the latter to address the matter on social media.
A video of the senior actor and Mahira, caught in an awkward moment on stage, went viral on the internet.
