Reham Khan’s upcoming book has created such a whirlwind already, it is crazy to imagine that it hasn’t even been released yet. From the cricketer Wasim Akram to her ex-husband Ijaz-ur-Rehman, no one seems to be happy with her book. And with accusations such as prejudice and libel floating in the air, things are getting heated far too early.
Adding to the fuel was Jemima Khan who claims that she will sue Reham Khan for some of the details in her book. And of course Hamza Ali Abbasi had something to say about that (like everything else). But surprisingly Mahira Khan added her voice to the ongoing debacle and managed to come out classier than all others.
Jemima Goldsmith who was married to PTI chairman Imran Khan, recently revealed her thoughts on the book by tweeting: “On Reham Khan’s book, I’ve been assured that it’s too libellous to be published in the UK but if it is published here, I will be suing for defamation & breach of privacy on behalf of my (then) 16 yr old son & in relation to the moronic, re-hashed Zionist conspiracy theories. Sigh”
This prompted actor Hamza Ali Abassi to send out his response in the Twitter verse, “In a world full of Gulalies & Rehams… Be like Jemima Khan.” And while his show of support for Jemima was touching, he did seemingly get upstaged by Mahira Khan who tweeted:

Her tweet, which has received almost 10,000 likes, has been seen by some as putting Abbasi in his place, though it is most likely her saying that it’s just better to not pit women against one another. Khan who isn’t as involved in politics as her friend and fellow actor Hamza Ali Abbasi, has often stepped into the fold when she felt enough attention wasn’t being given to an issue.
Most recently she has been advocating for justice for Khadija Sidiqqui, a girl who was stabbed 23 times by her classmate and whose assailant was given a reduced sentence by the Lahore High Court. She also chimed in to support the accusers of Sadat Bashir, who was accused by 80 students of Bahria College of sexual harassment. Aside from politics, Mahira Khan has also recently dazzled the world at the Cannes Film Festival. She will be seen on the big screen this Eid in the rom-com 7 Din Mohabbat in.
