Basking in the continuous success of her film The Legend of Maula Jatt, Mahira Khan recently sat down with the international publication Variety to go over her role, and the work she’s done internationally. Speaking of which, Mahira has nothing but pleasant things to say about her experience with Bollywood.

“I had the most amazing time working in India. I am still in touch with so many people and there’s a lot of love there,” she started off.

She then went on to share how the actors on both sides of the borders cannot express their admiration for one another openly because of how tense the situation is between both countries. “Unfortunately, we are easy targets, soft targets, whether it’s us here in Pakistan, whether it’s them there in India. So we’re trying to look out for each other, more than anything,” she said.

Despite the restrictions, there’s a whole lot of love between the two fraternities. “Even now, we are so careful with what we write on social media. It’s not that we don’t talk to each other. It’s not that we don’t wish each other on our birthdays. It’s not that we don’t meet each other in different countries. It’s not that — it’s just that we are actually not just protecting ourselves but protecting each other,” she shared.

“On both ends, until the time that scapegoats are needed, we will always be that,” she added.
