“When Mahira’s show ‘Humsafar’ released I was not even an actor. I look upto 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 explained

“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,” Mawra said.


Mawra is hopeful that her movie will be successful and liked by audience when it is released on the 5th of February.

“People in Pakistan did not expect the film to be this big. They are thrilled and the word of mouth is very positive there. 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,” she said.

“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.

Talking about the movie, the star said: “I am not nervous really. I am not over-confident but very satisfied because what we wanted to create, we have achieved that. Everyone worked as a team and I am very pleased with the result,” she said.
