Recently there were several reports doing rounds that Mahira Khan had refused to shoot intimate scenes with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for the Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Raees'.
At an event when Nawaz was asked about this he said, "Even I heard about it in the news. I don't have any idea about it." Previously several news reports suggested that her refusal to do intimate scenes was connected to other Pakistani actors Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan's reported aversion to such scenes.
'Raees' which is touted to be an action-thriller marks the debut of Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan in Bollywood. Set in 1980s Gujarat, it tells the story of a bootlegger whose business is thwarted by a tough policeman.
The movie is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment and Shah Rukh’s Red Chillies Entertainment and is scheduled to release on Eid 2016.
