Mumbai: Pakistani actress Mahira Khan was the target of much after a Halloween image posted online showing her and a Pakistani director, who was dressed as a representative of an Indian regional political party and holding a placard “Mahira ko bahaar nikaalo”. She has apologised for hurting sentiments, but says the image has been misconstrued.
The actress is making her Bollywood debut with Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Raees’. And her Halloween photograph, which surfaced online, has been taken as a dig at the Shiv Sena which last month vowed not to let Mahira and another Pakistani actor, Fawad Khan, promote their upcoming films in Maharashtra.
Mahira took to Twitter on Thursday to issue an apology for hurting people’s sentiments.
