“I have never worked with Fahad Mustafa,” Mahira previously told BBC. “I wanted to work with him but there just wasn’t any time. I can’t even begin to tell you the number of projects the two of us have been offered together but the timing has never been right.”
She added, “But there’s mutual respect. I respect him and I like him a lot as an actor. I like that he supports people and it’s imperative to me that a person should support others and our industry for that matter.”
Mahira Khan and Fahad Mustafa had expressed to work together when the actress appeared in the game show ‘Jeeto Pakistan’.
Fahad has collaborated with Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Merza on various projects including ‘Actor-in-Law’, which made a commendable success on the box-office. Qureshi is all praise of Fahad Mustafa’s acting skills and performance. Adding that “He’s a good actor. He works hard. We have a great working relationship.”
