Mahira Khan will not be replaced in Raees despite a ban on Pakistani actors enforced by MNS. According to reports, the makers of the Shah Rukh Khan film will go ahead with Mahira and shoot her remaining scenes at a “secret” location.
According to them; replacing Mahira is not a cost-efficient option. Raees producers Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar, SRK and director Rahul Dholakia are all positive that by the time the film releases in January, things will cool down.
Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan are among the other Pakistani actors, who have been banned from working in Bollywood in the outcome of the Uri attack.
While Shah Rukh can shoot the remaining scenes in Mumbai, it is now impossible for Mahira to shoot in India. According to rumors, the entire unit will fly to Abu Dhabi where they will reinvent the Mumbai set.
Let’s just wait for the official announcement from the team of Raees.
