Humsafar’s leading actress Mahira Khan is scheduled to make her debut in Bollywood starring opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Raees, according to the Times of India. 

Mahira visited Mumbai after her television serial Humsafar gained popularity in India. Mega producers Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar were the quickest to move in, selecting the actress for ‘Raees’ which is being directed by Rahul Dholakia.

Further, the makers were looking for an “international” face instead of a familiar Bollywood name, which explains how Mahira bagged the role.

She will play as SRK’s wife in the film, who will be a gangster based in Gujarat.
