Last week was abuzz with news that Mahira Khan has refused to do intimate scenes with her Raees co-star Nawazuddin Siddiqui. While the actress herself didn’t bother to debunk the rumour, her director Rahul Dholakia took to Twitter and did so in his most sarcastic tone, reported The Indian Express.
Dholakia mocked all those reporters who were spreading the false rumours
Although most sources quoted Bollywood Life, it is now certain that the actor hasn’t given such a statement because the very case was baseless. Mahira who is making her Bollywood debut in Raees alongside Shahrukh Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui earlier told in an interview that both producers and directors already know about the way she wanted to go about things:
“Raees’ producer Ritesh Sidhwani and director Rahul Dholakia were very kind with me from the onset. They listened to my reservations, explained things to me and told me repetitively not to worry,” she had said.
Mahira plays a Muslim girl from Gujarat in the film, which is slated to be released on Eid in 2016.
