Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees‘ was touted as the debut film of Pakistani beauty Mahira Khan. But with the ongoing MNS ultimatum on the release of Bollywood films starring Pakistani actors, it seems the beauty is to be replaced with some other Bollywood actress soon.
Yes, Shah Rukh Khan and the makers of ‘Raees’ have taken this decision to replace Mahira Khan. They do not want to jeopardize the release of their film. It was a tough decision to undertake but considering the movie has already been long delayed they do not want any more hurdles to it’s release now.
Sources said that there was a lot of pressure on producer Ritesh Sidhwani to replace the actress ever since the Uri attacks. They still had to shoot several important scenes between Shah Rukh and Mahira as the film was to release in January 2017. But taking in account the present scenario of Indo-Pak enmity and also as they want to release it earlier, the makers have decided to enroll a new actress for Mahira’s role.
Sources further added, “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. Rumors are on that Karan Johar too might replace Fawad Khan in the film. Aishwarya and Anushka who were earlier depicted as Pakistani citizens in the romantic saga will now not be seen as the citizens of the neighboring country in ADHM.
The makers of the films are yet to make an official announcement of replacing the Pakistani actors. We shall keep you updated on this matter soon.
