Scoop: Mahira Khan to be replaced in Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees

Mahira Khan

The stand-off between Pakistan and India has just claimed its first casualty in Bollywood. One learns from very reliable sources close to Shah Rukh Khan’s next release Raees that it’s leading, the very beautiful Pakistani actress Mahira Khan has been eased out of the project.

Says a source in the know, “It was a very painful decision for producer Ritesh Sidhwani to take. The pressure to replace her had been building up for months. It reached a crescendo after the Uri attacks. It came to a point where it became impossible to shoot with any Pakistani. 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.”

A hunt is now on for a Bollywood actress. “The Raees team needs to find a new girl in two weeks’ time,” says the source.
