There were two big takeaways from the TV adaptation of Farhat Ihstiaq’s novel Humsafar. The girls discovered the dashing Fawad Khan while the men fell head over heels for the gorgeous Mahira Khan, who is set to make her Bollywood bow with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees this week.

We stalked her on Instagram, so that you don’t have to.

The Pakisatani actress reportedly plays a very unique and important character in the upcoming film that also stars Nawazuddin Siddique. Her character helps SRK reach the pinnacle of success in the movie and is more of a right-hand aide than just a side-y wife.

Mahira started her career as a VJ in Pakistan and then made her big screen debut through the Atif Aslam-starring social drama Bol in 2011. She enjoyed instant success as the movie made its way to being one of the highest-ever grossing Urdu films.

But her biggest break came in the form of Humsafar a couple of years later and just like us, we’re sure that many of you have also been besotted ever since.

One of the highest-paid actresses in her homeland, Mahira has been brought up by an Indian-born father. She shifted to California for further education during her teens but returned to Pakistan midway through her Bachelors.

She got married in 2007 to a gentleman called Ali Askari, who she met in America. The now-divorced couple also have a son, born in 2014. We know divorce was the keyword for many of you there, but Mahira sits pretty in our fantasies regardless!
