The star-studded Masala Awards 2017 took place on Wednesday in Dubai. The glitzy affair, packed with beautiful looking celebs from India and Pakistan is undoubtedly one of the much awaited events every year. Celebrities from both the countries graced the red carpet in all their glory and some of them even wowed the audiences with their brilliant on-stage performances.
Mahira Khan, Saba Qamar and Mawra Hocane were representing Pakistan at the awards and if that was’t enough to make us proud of them, they also won awards in different categories… yes, all three of them!
Mahira while giving her red carpet interview said that her fans should know she’d be taking a break. Have a look at the video:

When the interviewer asked her about three things which her fans should know, the Raees girl replied by saying that she would be taking a break and will work less this year.
Now this is a statement we can’t digest so easily. The question is, how can Mahira Khan take a break when she’s already a part of two big projects of Pakistani cinema? Mahira is part of Meenu-Farjad’s Saat Din Mohabbat In, in which she would be starring alongside Sheheryar Munawwar. The movie is said to be released somewhere around Eid 2018. The other project is one of the most-anticipated movies of Pakistan, Maula Jutt, featuring Mahir alongside Fawad Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi and Humaima Malick in the lead roles.
So coming back to the question, how can Mahira take a break when she’s already a part of these two movies. Mahira said that she will be working less this year but she already works less, isn’t it? Her movie Ho Mann Jahan released on 1st January 2016. Then she made her much-awaited Bollywood debut with Raees in January 2017 and in November 2017, after dealing with all the ban trouble, came out Shoaib Mansoor’s Verna. So you see, Mahira doesn’t load herself with work. There’s a decent gap between all her movies. She’s not currently working in Pakistani dramas, so it is hard to comprehend how she will work less when she is already working less!
Maybe this is a publicity stunt or maybe this is a consequence of all the mixed reviews Verna has received. Let’s accept the fact that Shoaib Mansoor’s Verna has gotten more bad reviews than good, and maybe that’s not Mahira, it’s her frustration that’s making her give statements like these.
