WEB DESK: The versatile actress of Pakistan, Mahira Khan said she felt like ‘being punched in the stomach’ when she saw her Bollywood debut flick, Raees opposite Indian star Shahrukh Khan.
According to local media, she spoke about ‘failures’, how she faced and dealt with them – during a lecture at a university.
Mahira said,“The truth is that we have all gone through failure. I have personally as well as professionally experienced failure.”
The Humsafar star also said,“I was advised by many people to not accept the role in ‘Bol’ (Pakistani film) as it was a small one but my gut feeling told me otherwise. I also decided to act in the serial ‘Humsafar’ on my gut feeling.”
In ‘Bol’ her name was missed from credits and similar happened in the ‘Raees’, and she felt being punched in the stomach even though film’s teaser included ‘introducing Mahira Khan’.
However, gorgeous Mahira isn’t affected with failure as she said,“It is a big thing to work in a foreign film. I pray I get my introducing credit when I work in an Iranian film,” adding,”Failure is knowledge and knowledge is success. So it is a win-win. We actors know how to paint smiles on our faces and carry on, I did too.”
