Pakistan’s beloved Mahira Khan was under the spotlight these past days. However, this time, she was in for all the wrong reasons. Mahira Khan is a fashion icon of Pakistan. She got her break from dramas like Humsafar and is known as a modest actress.

Part of why Pakistan loves her so much is that she always keeps a defined limit in her work. The country loves her. Although every actor faces some backlash at some point, Mahira always has her team of positive supporters around her.

She conquered the Pakistani Drama Industry and Mega-hit Pakistani films like Bol and Bin Roye. Mahira made her Bollywood debut in Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Raees’. Even then, the actress was appreciated and loved for her work. Her skills were exemplary, her acting on point.

However, in September, some pictures of the actress stirred quite some controversy. The leaked images showed Mahira Khan in a sleeveless, backless dress. She is smoking with the Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor. The picture came as a shock to the country who idolize Mahira. The picture did its rounds on different social media platforms. As expected, Pakistanis did not take it well. People started bashing the actress for her inappropriate actions and wear on various platforms.

The general expression of the public was of disappointment. The uproar certainly depressed the actress who vanished from Twitter for a week or so.

On Monday, 2nd October, one of her fans tweeted to her saying ‘Ap ajao yar’. In response, the actress finally came back on Twitter on 3rd October. She responded “agayi” with a smiley. Both her Indian and Pakistani fans on Twitter received her warmly.

Celebrity Support for Mahira

The celebrity world has sided with Mahira Khan.

Ranbir Kapoor is in favour of the actress:

“I’ve gotten to know Mahira in a personal capacity over the last few months. She is somebody who I admire and respect, for her achievements and even more for the person she is.” He said to a leading Daily. “It is very unfair the way she is being judged and spoken about. What is also sad is the inequality in judgment just because she is a woman. I request you to stop the negativity and move on with your beautiful god gifted lives. Peace and Love.”

Other Pakistani actors took to Twitter to show their support for the actress. Many were angry, and all were requesting fans to respect Mahira’s privacy.

Considering all the events, it is clear that the picture scandal created more problems than it was worth. Mahira Khan is a stunning actress, who made her name from scratch. She has amazing skills which are the reason for her success.

Controversies are, after all, part of the glamorous entertainment world. We hope that Mahira recovers from this little incident and comes back smiling like always!

P.S. Smoking is injurious to health. So don’t even think about it.
