Mahira will be seen opposite Shah Rukh Khan in “Raees”.

Mawra says to media that she looks up to the “Humsafar” actress and says she is proud of her.

“I feel great that we will be debuting in Bollywood in the same year,” Mawra says of Mahira. I am really proud of her.”

“When Mahira’s show ‘Humsafar’ released I was not even an actor. I look up to her. She is stunning and truly gorgeous in the real sense. There is no competition at all. She has been longer in the industry. It has been only two-and-half years for me,” Mawra said.Mahira with SRK

“I feel great that we will be debuting in Bollywood in the same year. I am really proud of her. It will be wonderful because we both will be nominated as debutantes and that is something fantastic,” she added.

Mawra also shared why she signed on to the film Sanam Teri Kasam. However, her logic has us a little confused:

“Directors Radhika and Vinay had called me and they started the narration on Skype. The moment they said that it’s a story of a simple, bespectacled girl I knew I would be doing it. Because when you have a girl with spectacles, you will also have her transformation. I will get to show both the sides. I was on board instantly,” she said.

The young starlet can’t stop gushing about the opportunity she’s bagged: “No one my age has come to India and done a film. Nobody has been ‘launched’ in that sense. I am extremely grateful that I am a part of this film.”
