New Delhi: Instead of getting many Bollywood offers, the famous Pakistani actress Mahira Khan has refused to work in the multi-billion dollar Indian film industry and said that she was satisfied with working in Pakistan.
Mahira reached to the height of fame with her brilliant acting in Shoaib Mansoor’s film ‘Bol’ and drama serial ‘Hamsafar’. Currently the likes of Salma Agha, Zeba Bakhtiar, Somy Ali, Meera and Veena Malik and Ali Zafar are among those who have come all the way from Pakistan to work in the Bollywood industry.
“I don`t want to be a Bollywood star for sure because the kind of stardom that we get from Pakistan, I am very happy with that. So becoming a Bollywood actress is not something I am aspiring to do,” Mahira said.
The 27-year-old essayed the role of Khirad Ehsan in TV serial drama “Humsafar”, which became one of the most widely-known dramas of the Pakistani TV industry. She was praised for her performance by critics and fans alike.
“After `Bol`, I did a serial called `Humsafar` which was bigger than any movie that has come out in Pakistan and it did extremely well. It was maddening to see the reaction of both critics and fans, so I thought let`s just give it a break for sometime and then take another project,” she said.
The actress also revealed that her inspiration of becoming an actress was Madhuri Dixit.
