Did you know? Pakistani actress Mahira Khan was NOT the first choice for Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Raees’

Written by | October 31, 2016 | 0

Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees is one of the most anticipated films of 2017. While a lot has been said about SRK’s leading lady, Mahira Khan, and speculations about her being replaced are also rife owing to the objections of the MNS, another rumour had started doing the rounds.

As per the reports that are doing the rounds, Pakistani actress Mahira Khan was not the first choice of the makers for the said role. Former Femina Miss India Ankita Shorey was apparently considered to play SRK’s leading lady in the film but was later on replaced by Mahira.

According to TOI, Ankita confirms that the initial talk took place with her and she was even called in for a look test. She says, “I feel very fortunate that at some point in time I was at least being strongly considered for such a beautiful film and role.

Later after a few months, Mahira came into the picture and rest is history. I totally respect the decision of the makers and I am sure Mahira has done a fab job. It’s a beautiful film and deserves a worldwide reach.”
