Sources said that actress Mahira Khan disagreed with shooting a bold scene in her upcoming Bollywood debut film ‘Raees’.
The versatile actress, who is in spot-light these days both in India and Pakistan, has been enjoying extensive coverage in media since she was casted alongside B-Town King Shahrukh Khan.
She has now become a famous celebrity among Indian public, which already are fans of other Pakistani actors working in Bollywood – Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan. Following the footsteps of these two, Mahira also refused to shoot an intimate scene with co-star Nawazuddin Siddique.
According to Indian media, the Pakistani actress, currently busy in the making of ‘Raees’, has refused to shoot a bold scene where Nawazuddin Siddique’s character tries to abuse her.
Her character in the film is Nawaz’s glam doll in the movie before Miyanbhai swept her off her feet and that was not a congenial relationship. The intimate shoot is quite edgy, dismal and to some extent violent that has Nawaz forcing himself on her.
It was a bit more unsettling and difficult for Mahira Khan, who bluntly refused to shoot it anyway.
Meanwhile, Mahira is not the first Pakistani working in Bollywood who has refused shooting a bold scene, Fawad Khan also had recently refused to shoot an intimate scene with co-star Alia Bhatt in his upcoming movie Kapoor and Sons.
