Mahira Khan To Be Replaced In Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’?


Oops! What on earth is happening in Bollywood! The news is making rounds in media that the lead actress, Mahira Khan of the movie ‘Raees’ is to be replaced with some other B-town’s diva.

Due to the escalating tensions between India and Pakistan and MNS calling the ban on Pakistani celebrities a lot of negative sentiments were generated recently.

After the MNS statement of blocking the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil starring Fawad Khan and Raees starring Mahira Khan, there were speculations as to how the filmmakers will cope up with this scenario.

As per the unknown source, “It was a very painful decision for producer Ritesh Sidhwani to take. The pressure to replace her had been building up for months. It reached a crescendo after the Uri attacks. It came to a point where it became impossible to shoot with any Pakistani artiste. People suggested all kinds of solutions to the impasse, including shooting in Dubai. But it didn’t seem viable. Now, Mahira has unfortunately been relieved of her duties.”

While there is no official confirmation from any of the relevant sources, the director of the film, Rahul Dholakia tweeted “Cooker ki saat seeti Baj chuki hai, aag dena bandh kar” (not a line from Raees, I has better dialogues).

On the other hand, Mahira, keeping her innocence alive, still hasn’t confirmed anything yet in this regard. However, it has been reported that the charming queen strongly condemned not only the Uri-attacks but also the act of terror.
