Leaving aside few controversies and setbacks, Mahira Khan is smoothly ascending toward fame. Films like Bol, Raees, and Verna were a nerve-wracking test of her acting abilities that helped her transcend as one of the finest actors.

She turned a new leaf in her career when she starred against Bollywood King, Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Raees’. Her debut film, according to various studies, was the most-watched and certainly, the most pirated film of 2017.

Last year, Mahira Khan won the award at Masala Film Festival in Dubai and she also appeared at Beirut International Film Festival. The screening of her movie ‘Verna’ at the UK Asian Film Festival was the highlight of the event.
