Mahira Khan is all set to make her big Bollywood debut with Raees in the next few days. Obviously, there couldn't be a better way to make a debut than with Shah Rukh Khan. However, the actress is not that happy. This is because she hasn't been able to promote her film of a few political issues between India and Pakistan. In the aftermath of the devastating Uri attacks last year, Bollywood decided to ban Pakistani artistes under the pressure of several political parties. This meant that Mahira Khan would not be able to promote her film in India. However, with political situation still being unstable, the makers decided not to let Shah Rukh and Mahira promote their film together in Dubai too. They will be giving separate interviews and they will promote Raees separately. This is a measure to avoid any further controversies, but looks like this whole mess hasn't gone down well with the actress.
Though she has been calm and hasn't complained about the whole ban till now, Mahira finally let out her frustrations and her reaction will totally melt your heart. While talking to the Pakistan daily - Dawn, Mahira reacted on not being able to promote her film with SRK. She mentioned, "Yes I’m grateful (to be a part of the film and promote it), but it’s something I have worked for! Why shouldn’t I feel it? Just because I’m an actor? Just because it’s a film? Just because it seems like fluff? I also want to promote the film. I also want to be in an interview with Shah Rukh Khan talking about it. Why not? Why is it I get told that that’s asking for too much? It isn’t! It is my right. This was also my film."

In the meanwhile, Mahira and Shah Rukh continue with their separate promotions in Dubai.
