With a firm hand on the a stint as a video jockey on local music television channels to playing the loveable Khirad in the TV serial Humsafar, her career trajectory boasts a steady trend.
Known for being a fashion arbiter, she now revels in the success that Humsafar has been garnering across the border. As Mahira makes a visit to India to promote the serial.
Unlike her Humsafar co-star Fawad Khan, who used the drama as a springboard for his Bollywood debut along with three television serials and two telefilms, Mahira has remained selective with her roles. “Everyone has their own career paths, determined by the choices they make. I don’t think about what or how much someone else is doing.
Among the multiple projects in the pipeline, Mahira will soon be seen in the upcoming TV serial and film Bin Roye Ansoo, which is expected to release early next year. Of her character in the project, she says, “I play the role of Saba, a complex character with shades of grey. It was a difficult role in terms of keeping a balance while portraying her emotions.” She adds, “There are many shifts in the moods of the character, which had to be conveyed with subtlety.”
