There is something about Mahira Khan that sets her apart from most actresses in the entertainment fraternity. The Pakistani actress, model, and former VJ, Mahira Khan, has been stealing the audience’s hearts for the past 14 years. The 36-year-old has to date delivered powerful and moving performances, stepped in challenging roles which have marked her strong foothold in the industry.
From representing Pakistan on various global platforms to fighting for minority rights and being a strong face of women empowerment, we’ve seen Mahira Khan prove she’s a savage boss-lady time and time again. And since it’s her 36th birthday today, it seems like the perfect time to reminisce most of her achievements.
So, without further ado, here are 5 reasons why we love the Humsafar actress:
Global Frontwoman of Pakistan
Mahira has represented Pakistan on a global scale on many different occasions. In 2017, she participated in the Global Education and Skills Forum. The Main Manto actress has spoken for girls’ education not only in her home country but also on international forums.
Apart from this, in 2019 the diva was appointed as a National Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR. Through her work as an ambassador, Mahira Khan has highlighted the needs of the Afghan refugees in Pakistan.
Even though the star has had a busy schedule [and a son to take care of] she always remains on top of things. Kudos to her for shedding a positive light on Pakistanis.
An Enthusiastic Activist
We’ve all witnessed Mahira speak up for the rights of minorities. And judging by her social media posts, the Raees actress never misses a chance to stand up for the vulnerable. The former VJ is vocal about sensitive subjects, never failing to give her two cents on social issues. She always makes it a point to engage in dialogues that creates awareness for others.
Did you know she was named in ‘BBC 100 Most Inspiring Women’ last month? She has truly inspired many to do the right thing.
A Self-empowered Woman
Mahira proves to be a strong, independent woman- with an 8-year-old son, the actress balances her personal and private life perfectly. Despite her busy schedule, the single-mother always takes out time to spend it with her baby-boy!
But she’s also not afraid of sharing the struggles of being a single mother, hence empowering others around her.
Memorable, Powerful Performances
We’ve seen the actress give powerful performances throughout her career as an actress. Through her work on the big as well as the small screen, she has brought many characters to life for the audience.
Her most recent work in shows like Main Manto, Bin Roye, and Sadqay Tumhare, and movies like Superstar, Parey Hut Love, and Verna were especially loved by her fans.
Her love for chai!
Whether we’ve seen all of her performances or not, there’s one thing that we all can relate to her with. Her love for chai. The actress has taken to her social media account on several different occasions to express her love for tea, and WE AGREE!
