Mahira Khan laments not being able to promote her Bollywood debut film Raees
In India, a ban on Pakistani artistes working in Bollywood has invoked mixed reactions from people. While some regret that they will not be able to see the likes of Fawad Khand and Mahira Khan in Hindi films, many are of the opinion that the ban was absolutely necessary and impending.

Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming movie Raees had also come under cloud of this ban, and for ensuring a smooth release of the film, SRK along with producer Ritesh Sindhwani had met Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray in December last year. 

In the meeting that lasted for an hour, Shah Rukh had assured Raj that neither the leading lady of Raees, Pakistani actress Mahira Khan would come down to India for promoting the film and nor would he ever work with any Pakistani actors in future. 

However, Mahira is unhappy and is regretting not being able to promote her Bollywood debut film Raees. 

She was quoted by Express Tribune as saying in an interview, "Of course, I feel bad. When you put so much effort and hard work in a project, you wish to see the results."

Mahira also spoke about how Fawad Khan's role in `Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' was cut short due to strained relations between India-Pakistan. She added, "I'm not privy to that but I am content with my part in the Rahul Dholakia directorial."

Still, she says that Raees will always remain as one of the most special projects for her. She added, "I work with the same dedication and zeal in all my projects, but `Raees' is very special."
