Mahira Khan has recently shared her experience of meeting Shah Rukh Khan for the first time in an interview with Masala magazine. She revealed,
‘AssalamAlaikum’ was his first word when he came to see me after I signed the film. I remember my photo-shoot was going on. Like a thorough gentleman, he asked me about how I and my family was. It was very brief and he said, ‘We are looking forward to working with you’. And I reassured him that it would be good.
Also, she revealed her first reaction when she watched the trailer of the film,
I had lost my sleep, I wanted to be up all night but by six or seven in the morning, I started to doze off. By 12noon, I heard a commotion in my house so I stepped out and asked my brother ‘Has any one seen it? How is it? He gave me a strange look and said, ‘You watch it’ and replayed it for me. It was just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I cannot describe that in words; all I wanted to do was cry but I was smiling.
