Mahira Khan got candid about her personal life and shed light on the presence of a special man in her life, while appearing in a live interview with HSY, on Friday.
The actress was seen addressing rumoured beau Salim for the first time publicly, and when asked about her feelings, said that she thinks of him as a blessing/reward.
Mahira’s confession came when HSY, starting the conversation, said, “You are in love now, his name is Salim.” He then asked Mahira, “When you look deep into his eyes, what is the first thing that comes to your mind?”
To this, after much hesitation, Mahira responded, “There’s a line in Humsafar, which I thought was beautiful, where Ashar says to Khirad, ‘Pata nahi tum mujhe kis naiki kay badlay main miley ho [I don’t know wat I did to to deserve you.] I think the same about him.”
She added, “I don’t know what have I done in my life, must have done something good because of which Allah blessed me with…” the actress says before HSY interjects, “…Because of which Allah blessed you with Salim.”
Mahira then laughed and proceeded to add, “I feel like this for my child too. My child is someone I feel super grateful for. He is the centre of my world, everything revolves around him, but I feel the same way about him, the people I love; that there is something that I must have done right.”
The Raees actress went on to explain, “I was such a heartbreaker but I realised Allah will not be too happy with my behaviour. I hope that we can protect this because I feel like any relationship is a long… you have to work at it and strive to make it better.”
Joking about how Mahira has crushed the hearts of her many fans with this news, HSY said, “I am sure you heard the sound of a million hearts breaking when you said that line about you and your man.”
