The upcoming year appears to have a lot in store for Mahira Khan. While fans wait to see her opposite Fawad Khan in one of the most highly-anticipated films The Legend of Maula Jatt, the actress has confirmed that she will also be seen opposite Bilal Ashraf in a new film.
In an exclusive conversation with Instep, Mahira revealed details about her character and the story of her forthcoming film Superstar, directed by Ehtishamuddin.
“It’s a romance in its essence, but it’s a story about faith, failure, success and two people who meet each other at a strange time, basically wanting the same thing out of life, but how they want it is very different.”
The film, which revolves around the subject of stardom in Pakistan, will show Mahira as an actress. She will be seen opposite Bilal Ashraf for the very first time, which will surely be exciting and refreshing. The filmmakers, however, had roped in Mahira years before the film was officially announced and netizens were intrigued to find out more.
“It is a passion project. People ask me why I’ve taken it up, but I can’t help it, my heart’s in it,” she said in the interview.
While Superstar awaits a confirmed release date, Mahira’s Eid-ul-Fitr release The Legend of Maula Jatt has both, fans and critics excited. She also has a special cameo in Asim Raza’s Parey Hut Love, releasing on Eid ul Azha.
