KARACHI: Pakistani actress Mahira Khan was looking forward to the release of Raees in Pakistan but unfortunately for her and her fans, the movie was banned by Pakistan.
In her latest interview to an Indian website, Mahira revealed that she was quite disappointed with the ban.
In response to a question, the Pakistani beauty likened herself to a marathon runner who learned he had been dropped before the final lap of the race.
"I feel like that marathon runner who, during the last lap just before the finishing line , is dropped out of the race. There was this feeling when it happened 'Oh Man, not right now. Now just before the release!'," she said.
The actress further said that in Pakistan, a Mahira Khan and Shah Rukh Khan movie meant something special for the Pakistani people and the movie would have gotten a good response had it been released.
She spoke about the warm reception that people in India had given to her when Raees had been released there.
