Mahira Khan’s upcoming Bollywood debut film Raees is set to hit the cinema globally on January 25, 2017. Though we still don’t know if the film will release in Pakistan or not but the expectations are held high. Raees was under threat in India and MNS will only let it have a safe release on the condition that Mahira wouldn’t fly to India for the promotions which is devastating for the diva since she can’t promote her film.
Well, recent reports suggest that Mahira might join the lead, Shah Rukh Khan to promote their upcoming flick in Dubai across the malls and public places.
According to DNA India, the buzz is, it was SRK’s decision to kick off the promotions in the UAE before heading for the India tour. A source informs that Mahira was spotted at Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates a couple of days ago, while another adds, “Mahira will join Shah Rukh and Rahul at the Bollywood Amusement Park in Dubai. Over the two-day promotional schedule, they will also visit malls and interact with the local media.”
The duo had earlier even shot for a song in the Middle East. Talking about Mahira’s absence, Raees’ director Rahul Dholakia had earlier stated, “We do miss Mahira a lot and she is an integral part of the film. But in such a scenario, there is nothing that’s left to be done. She had come down to Mumbai a few years ago and executed the audition scenes beautifully,” reported DNA India.
