When we found out Mahira Khan was going to star opposite Shahrukh Khan in Raees we were very excited. We knew she would do full justice to the role. But with her Bollywood debut not able to see the light in Pakistani cinemas due to the movie not being cleared by our Censor Board, Khan remained unstoppable from becoming the first Pakistani actress to join Bollywood’s 100 Crore Club!
According to Bollywood life, Khan beat many famous Indian actresses, including Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt, to reach the top and beat the actresses that didn’t do as great in the first quarter of 2017.
With Raees having made over Rs 137.51 Crore only in India, Khan is enjoying her new place in the 100 Crore Club, but because of the Indian ban on our artists, it seems she won’t be entering that club again anytime soon.
Nevertheless, being the first Pakistani actress to achieve such a milestone is simply amazing.
With second and third position going to Yami Gupta for Kaabil and Huma Qureshi for Jolly LLB 2, Khan also beat Padukone with Return of the Xander Cage and Alia Bhatt with Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya.
While she may not be allowed to work in Bollywood for the time being, Mahira Khan is quite busy these days. She stars in Bilal Lashari’s untitled movie opposite Fawad Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi, Shoaib Mansoor’s ‘Verna‘ and if that wasn’t enough, her other movie in the pipeline ‘Saat Din Mohabbat In‘ opposite Shehryar Munawwar. We can’t wait to see her in all three!
