It almost seems strange to think of a time when Mahira Khan wasn’t the most popular name in the entertainment industry of Pakistan. However, the Raees actress had very humble beginnings as a VJ – that too was by chance!
In one of her old interviews, Mahira Khan recounts how she ‘accidentally’ became a VJ.
As the story goes, she went into MTV or an internship with her fiance (at the time) and landed a gig as a VJ! One of the other VJs had quit and Mahira’s boss told her that ‘you will do it!’
It was a complete accident but I had always harboured a dream to become a movie star.
Well, we know the rest of the story… Mahira became a household name pretty soon. She started her acting career with Shoaib Mansoor’s Bol and became an instant hit with ‘Humsafar’.
And the rest is simply history. Looks like Mahira got her dream, after all!
Am I really a celebrity? Really I don’t feel like one (maybe because I am a complete social moron).
For those of you who don’t know, Mahira also had a small stint as a waitress in LA. This girl truly knows all about putting in some elbow grease!
