Despite the recent post, it seems that Mahira is set to be replaced in ‘Raees’, featuring Shah Rukh Khan in the lead. The shooting of the film still has not been completed and amid the current situation, shooting with Mahira would be a difficult task, prompting producer Ritesh Sidhwani to replace the actress.
“It was a very painful decision for producer Ritesh Sidhwani to take. The pressure to replace her had been building up for months. It reached a crescendo after the Uri attacks. It came to a point where it became impossible to shoot with any Pakistani. People suggested all kinds of solutions to the impasse, including shooting in Dubai. But it didn’t seem viable. Now, Mahira has unfortunately been relieved of her duties. The ‘Raees’ team needs to find a new girl in two weeks’ time,” a source told DNA.
As far as Fawad Khan and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is concerned, the release is just a few days away and it is unlikely that the makers can change anything with the film now.
