Mahira Khan, the beloved Pakistani actress who recently tied the knot with Salim Karim, finds herself amidst swirling rumors yet again, this time regarding her alleged second pregnancy. The Indian media ignited a storm of speculation, alleging that Khan withdrew from an upcoming Netflix project Jo Bachy Hain Sang Samit Lo, due to her pregnancy. However, the actress has vehemently refuted these claims by giving her statement to Express Tribune.
Khan, known for her grace and resilience, addresses the rumors head-on. In a statement given to the Express Tribune, she stated,
It’s not true that I’m pregnant. And I haven’t left the Netflix series.
The rumor was started by a now-deleted Reddit post that stated that the actress left the Netflix show because she is pregnant with her second child which is expected to come out somewhere around August or September this year. As per India Today, the post read: “An announcement could be made soon or not if she chooses to announce it after birth but as she’s a big celeb and can’t keep it lowkey for long, I feel that she will announce.”
Khan married her long-time boyfriend and businessman Salim Karim on October 2nd, 2023 in Bhurban, Pakistan. Previously, she was married to Ali Askari between 2007 to 2015. The duo also has a son together who was born in 2009.
Workwise, she was last seen in the Pakistani Punjabi action drama film The Legend of Maula Jatt. The film also stars Fawad Khan, Humaima Malik, and Hamza Ali Abbasi. She will be next seen in a film called Neelofar. On television, Khan was seen in the miniseries Razia which was released last year and was well received.
