We all know her name—It’s a name that, for the past 7 years, has continued to grace the covers of countless magazines, infinite social networking pages, and endless conversations from all around the world.
Beautiful eyes, magnetic personality, the infectious smile, Mahira Khan is just about the most photogenic woman ever captured on celluloid. It’s difficult, though, to imagine someone so poised, elegant yet so down to earth. That’s probably part of her appeal.
From her iconic work like Humsafar, BinRoye, to Raees, it’s no secret that Mahira Khan is one of the most revered and beloved women in the world of entertainment. However, what many don’t know is that Mahira is far from being “just another pretty face.” With her work towards the Shaukat Khan Memorial Breast Cancer Awareness program, devotion to being a mother, and life founded on kindness and compassion, Mahira has always has remained a treasured household name; and not just from of her style and career as an actress, but from her inner beauty, wisdom, and love that touches everyone around her.
Women want to be like her; men want to be with a woman like her. This is not necessarily the case for all beautiful women. There is something about Mahira Khan’s beauty that is childlike and unthreatening to women. Despite being a gorgeous, successful actress, Mahira has not lost sight of her priorities and stays humble and down to earth.
My first encounter with Mahira Khan was last year July 27th 2016 at Taj Land’s End during the Vogue Style Awards. My meeting experience seemes so surreal and magical that I still have not managed to get over it lolz ( Will describe the meeting on another separate blog).
As her biggest fan, I believe I have a lot to learn from our favourite Mahira Khan. And while she had many memorable traits, here are few top reasons why we can’t get enough of Mahira Khan
- She is always Humble – As one of the most idolized beauty icons in the world, it’s hard to imagine Mahira Khan as someone who is so down to earth and sweet. Humility is undoubtedly the most attractive quality in her. Mahira is always ready to interact or click a selfie with her fans and she never fails to make them happy and always lives upto their expectations.
- She’s a Mom First – Despite her glamorous life outside of the home, Mahira never forgets the most important people are the ones who would be there even after the curtain went down. Mahira is the happiest when she is home playing with her cute 7 year old son Azlan . Not only a perfect actor but a dedicated Super Mom too.
- She is a Role Model to all- Every girl on earth, given the chance would love to look, be and perform like Mahira. Mahira is one in a billion and I would love to make an inspirational film called “Main Mahira Khan banna Chahti hoon’ inorder elucidate the craze and colossal stature of this iconic actress!
- She Conquered Bollywood – Mahira made her Bollywood debut Raees– opposite Shahrukh Khan this year and ended up becoming the top grossing female actors of Bollywood this year. Mahira is the ‘Unstoppable Khan indeed”
- She exudes class and grace – Mahira is almost synonymous with elegance in our minds. Her movement, posture and speech are drenched in grace. There’s almost something surreal about her, as if the actress herself is just an idyllic character from a fairy tale.
- She is Bankable – Be it films, television dramas to various brands,. What ever Mahira touches it turns into gold. Recently Veet Pakistan selected her the brand Ambassador and the face of their brand. Don’t you feel good every time you see that gorgeous smile and feel her “energy?” She evokes a spiritual, high energy in her branding – even in her most simple photos or mentions in magazines. That is connection and resonance.
- She raises the bar all the time – Mahira Khan is one actor who constantly challenges her self and pushes the envelope. Mahira always offers something new and fresh to her audience and selects new and interesting projects all the time.
- She’s unapologetically herself. She gives herself permission to be all she is with no apologies. She is confident, strong, feminine, creative, funny (love her laugh), brilliant, strong, a loving mother, etc.
No offense to any of our leading ladies, but it takes a lot to have Mahira’s charisma. Despite being talented, many actresses fail to leave an impression on the audiences because of their low screen value. Mahira has an exquisite ability to stand out in a crowd with her glowering presence.
Mahira Khan is inspiring a generation of actresses, enchanting millions of men and has managed to attain her own place in Bollywood and also the Pakistan Film Industry that is unimaginable to most actresses of today’s generation!
Ultimately, it’s not the roles she plays that makes her an enduring cultural icon, but who she is. And this is why we just can’t get enough of Mahira Khan
