Mahira Khan Wins Award at The UK Asian Film Festival!


The gorgeous Mahira Khan is currently in London to attend the 20th UK Asian Film Festival 2018 that will run in four cities across the United Kingdom from 14th to 25th March.

The theme of this year’s UK Asian Film Festival 2018 is “F-Rated”, which is a specified rating assigned to the films that have recognized the role of women in a progressive way and this festival welcomes all those powerful ladies who have stepped up to speak for women empowerment.


Our very own superstar has given all of us another proud moment as Mahira Khan has been presented with the Contribution to Film and Activism Award at the UK Asian Film Festival!


Mahira was presented with this award for her role in Verna, that will also be screened at this festival on 16th March.

Verna, a social drama starring Mahira Khan and debutant Haroon Shahid, is a powerful call to action for those who wronged by the system who are deprived of their right to justice. Due to its difficult yet deeply relevant subject matter, the film faced severe pushback from the Pakistani censor board and we are thankful to include it in this year’s line up to help spread the powerful message of the film. This screening will be introduced by special guest Mahira Khan, and will be preceded by the short film Unsilencing Sabeen.

While talking to the host, Mahira shared her childhood dreams that like every girl, she also wanted to get married and she also wished to work with Shahrukh Khan. Amazingly, Mahira did both and she addressed herself as a full-time mother and a part time actor!

People are even comparing her with Aishwarya Rai who also wore the same dress and to be honest, both these superstars have their own grace!

One outfit, two superstars! #hautetrail #mahirakhan #aishwaryarai
