The actress said: “Raees is releasing soon in Pakistan and believe me everybody is waiting for the film just like people had waited all over the world and I believe that it is going to do amazing business here.”

The “Humsafar” actress shared how her family reacted to the film. “The big fear was people will come to watch the movie and hoot for Shahrukh, not for me. When my family watched the movie, they were also screaming for him.”

“But the kind of response I received has been completely fantastic and I am very grateful,” she added.

Sharing the experience of working with King Khan, Mahira, 32, said, “I was nervous as hell. Sometimes I used to wish I wasn’t a big Shahrukh fan. It was scary but it got better, especially after we shot ‘Zaalima’. Working with him is a dream come true. Nothing short of that.”
