You must know you are an exceptional actor when Superstar Mahira Khan expresses the desire to work with you.
Bilal Abbas Khan has showcased great talent in Cheekh and won the audience with his remarkable performance as the bad guy, Wajih.
In a recent interview, when Mahira was asked who she’d like to work with, she replied, “I want to work with Bilal Abbas”.
“He’s very good,” she added. Well, we do agree he’s a great actor and after seeing Mahira’s chemistry with Bilal Ashraf, we’d like to see how she looks on the screen with Bilal Abbas!
While age is just a number and it’s the role you choose and your chemistry on screen that matters, people were quick to comment and mock Mahira’s age and the wish to work with a younger actor.
This is not the first time Mahira has been mocked over her age and the roles she plays. Recently, senior actor Firdous Jamal age shamed her and received a lot of criticism for the comment.
“She’s quite aged as well and we don’t have heroines at this age, they only play the characters of mothers”
It’s extremely sad that we are still calling out the leading female actors on their age, while male actors easily get roles opposite female leads half their age.
No matter what people say, Bilal Abbas has proved himself as an actor and climbed the ladder of success with sheer dedication and hard work. There’s a reason he’s gotten himself roles opposite some of the top actors in the industry.
He’s worked with Sajal Aly, Saba Qamar and we won’t be surprised to hear if he’s already signed a project with Mahira Khan too.
As for the age difference, we doubt that’s even an issue.
Mahira Khan’s Superstar was one of Eid-ul-Adha’s biggest releases this year, which earned big numbers at the box office.
