“I thank her and all Pakistanis for their extraordinary support,” he added.
The Superstar actor was appointed as the UNHCR Goodwill ambassador in November last year. She visited Afghan refugees in Peshawar last year as part of a high-profile UN delegation and has been very active with her duties as Goodwill Ambassador.
In December last year, Mahira was a part of UNHCR video along with many Hollywood celebrities to spread awareness on the plight of refugees.
“Pakistan has hosted the refugees for nearly forty years thereby setting an example for the world,” she said.
