“When I cry on screen, people cry with me” – Mawra Hocane

Mawra Hocane is known for speaking her mind no matter how harsh the criticism against her might be. She has never let the criticism curtail her efforts but she has always used it in her favour by focusing on her goals even more. In a recent interview Mawra Hocane was asked why she choose to do roles in which she always played a character which was not strong and she was always seen crying she said,

“Shah Rukh Khan still opens his arms in his signature pose; that’s his USP. So why shouldn’t I continue to play characters people praise me for?”

In an exclusive interview with Express Tribune, Harshvardhan Rane, who is playing the lead along side Mawra Hocane in her debut film said,

“While I agree with everything Mawra said, I just want to add that bohat kum larkiyan rotay huay itni sundar lagti hain (not every girl looks as beautiful while crying as Mawra does).”

Mawra Hocane also kissed her hero in one of the trailers for which she was severely criticized. How does she feel about this criticism? Mawra said,

“Of course [I received flak for that scene]. Some people thrive on negativity so they would only pick on that. If I took all the criticism to heart, I would have stopped working and then I would have never been able to prove my point: this is a great love story.”

Talking about support from her fans and criticism from other people Mawra said,

“I am very very thankful to them for giving me a response that I have never received before. But I also want to thank even those who criticized me. It gave me the motivation to work harder. And in spite of all the negativity, the number of my fans kept on increasing. I have made this film for them. And I am coming home to promote it. So, I will see them soon.”
