Pakistani actor Mahira Khan, who made her Bollywood debut with Indian superstar Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees this year, has said “We, in India and Pakistan mourn and celebrate the same way. Our language is similar, we connect on a huge scale. Even though you feel that they the Indians around are strangers but they never make you feel aloof. Every time I’d request for something that made me uneasy, I was always heard and respected.”
Mahira’s session at Aga Khan University, revolved around how one can cope with failure and find ample strength in what you believe in. Moreover, she candidly discussed how the Pakistani actors ban affected her but she stood strong throughout the process.
“Faith is a beautiful and important thing. And you know this more when you have lost faith. When you are trapped in a dark place in life, faith helps you know that it will be okay,” the star shared in her speech.
She reiterated that her family and friends at home have always had her back which has made her a stronger person through the toughest of times.
