News has surfaced that the renowned Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan, is currently in discussions to mark her entry into Malayalam cinema with the much-awaited movie L2: Empuraan.
As reported by News18 and Free Press Journal, the lifting of the ban on Pakistani artists by the Bombay High Court has opened up opportunities for Mahira, who is reportedly contemplating a significant role alongside Malayalam superstar Mohanlal in the sequel to the immensely successful film, Lucifer.
Director Prithviraj Sukumaran, leading the charge on L2: Empuraan, has yet to issue an official response to the ongoing rumors surrounding Mahira’s potential participation in the project. Nevertheless, speculation has gained traction owing to the close camaraderie shared between Prithviraj, his wife Supriya Menon, and Mahira, along with her husband Salim Karim.
The rumors gained momentum with the circulation of a viral group photo from a vacation in the Maldives, further fueling the speculations.
The superstar, once in an interview with a local network, expressed her admiration for Malayalam cinema, encouraging her friends and followers to explore the industry. She praised Malayalam films for their storytelling, acting, and production values, expressing her desire to work in the industry.
