Mahira Khan comes across as a drought of fresh air. Her enchanting, charming and forthcoming aura, yet exclusivity in selection of projects are what help her secure her throne. Possibly the most acclaimed and sought-after actresses of the current generation and arguably the most esteemed as well, Khan is far from being a diva, in fact she is affable, genial and as vulnerably empowered as any of us. And while she undoubtedly has immense presence on the silver screen, in person, Mahira is as human as anyone.

Her reign as the Raeeszadi of the local entertainment scene has only expanded over the years. Barely a decade ago, Khan entered the fraternity as a video jockey and within no time at all, was able to have a strong footing in the industry with only a handful of projects. In fact, only her second television outing, Humsafar had largely contributed to her meteoric rise to stardom.

After winding up Shoaib Mansoor’s socio-drama, Verna, Mahira has begun shooting for the much-awaited Maula Jatt reboot, while she will shoot for the rom-com, Saat Din Mohabbat In later this year. Exclusively in conversation with HIP, Mahira Khan aced our rapid fire session and how. Read on to know more about the superstar:

Fawad Khan:

MK: He’d be a director.

MK: A professor or probably run a school.
