MUMBAI (Staff Report) – Despite an ideal Bollywood debut opposite none other than Shahrukh Khan in Raees, Pakistani actress Mahira Khan has refused to do a sex scene with Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the film, Indian media reported.

According to Time of India, Mahira’s character was Nawaz’s glam doll in the film before Miyanbhai swept her off her feet. And that wasn’t a very happy relationship.


“The sex scene is pretty edgy, dark, and somewhat brutal, showing Nawaz forcing himself on her,” a source told TOI.

Reportedly Mahira was disturbed by it and refused to do the scene.

But aren’t people making a huge deal about it for nothing? Agreed, she might be under a contract, but she always has a right to say ‘no’, right? We hope the makers understood her predicament.


With Mahira flying in and out of India, the action-thriller, Raees, directed by Rahul Dholakia and produced by Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani and Gauri Khan has only 20 days of shooting left.
