“You are beautiful in every single way…” – Beautiful by Christina Aguilera
If there is anyone in the film industry who is absolutely flawless it is Mahira Khan. With her charisma and the grace with which she carries herself, she has turned us all into her admirers. Her endless charm and elegance have no equal when it comes to Pakistani actresses. Even though Mahira gained recognition after her acting debut in Shoaib Mansoor’s widely successful movie “Bol,” she became a real national sensation after working alongside the heartthrob Fawad Khan in the super-hit drama serial “Humsafar.”
Mahira played the role of the poised and gentle “Khirad” in Humsafar and gave us major style goals. Mahira was dressed in simple Anarkali frocks or short shirts with net dupattas in Humsafar and these looks became a major style inspiration for the women of Pakistan when the show was aired!
