Exclusive: Mahira Khan talks about winning at Beirut International Awards Festival

If you’ve also been obsessing over Mahira Khan’s beautiful white gown, you’re not alone. The internet is buzzing with pictures of the Raees star as she made her way into the Beirut International Awards Festival, where she had been invited to receive the International Icon award.

Dressed like a modern day princess in a floor length gown designed by Nicholas Jebran, Mahira looked every bit the international icon that she is.


She looked absolutely stunning with minimal accessories and a simple hairdo.

Unsurprisingly, Mahira ended up winning the Best Dressed award at the film festival as well! Something Haute got in touch with the star to talk about winning two awards. “Feels very good. There is pressure to work harder, to keep on pushing boundaries with work. It’s also really amazing to meet with artists from all over the world,” she told us.

“We got a call from BIAF and they told me that they would like to give me an award. The organisers were so kind, so are the people of Beirut. Unfortunately, I’m leaving today so I won’t get to see the city but hopefully I can come back and do so,” she added.



Speaking specifically about her Best Dressed award, Mahira wanted to give all the credit to her stylist. “I am going to post this award to my stylist, Maneka. She insisted on this white ensemble by Nicholas Jebran. It was a difficult one to carry, but it was beautiful.”
