Mahira Khan dismisses rumours about pregnancy, walking out of OTT project
Mumbai, Feb 13 (IANS) Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who starred alongside Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan in the 2017 film ‘Raees’, has cleared the air on rumours surrounding her pregnancy.
Recently, a user on Reddit alleged in a now-deleted post that the actress is expecting a baby after her marriage with Pakistani entrepreneur Salim Karim.
The post had also claimed that Mahira has stepped away from Netflix’s ‘Jo Bachey Sang Samait Lo’ and another yet-to-be-titled film.
The Reddit post read, “So, I got this news from a close source that she opted out of the esteemed Netflix project alongside a big film as she’s expecting her second child somewhere in August or September (sic)”.
Speaking with ‘The Express Tribune’, Mahira issued the clarification and said there’s no truth to the aforementioned claims.
The actress told ‘The Express Tribune’, “It’s not true that I’m pregnant. And I haven’t left the Netflix series”.
