Pakistani actor Mahira Khan says she feels bad that she is not able to promote her Bollywood debut Raees in India due to the climate of political tension between India and Pakistan.
The 32-year-old actor stars alongside Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the Rahul Dholakia-directed film.
In an interview to BBC Urdu, Mahira said she has put in a lot of effort in the project and feels bad that she can’t see the results. “Of course, I feel bad. When you put so much effort and hard work in a project, you wish to see the results. I work with same dedication and zeal in all my projects, but Raees is very special,” she said.
Speaking about her fears, she said, “I’m scared about saying what I feel. I believe I’ll end up causing offence. It is unfortunate though.”
