DUBAI – Actress Mahira Khan couldn’t help but break into a dance, quite literally, after meeting her “biggest” fan in Dubai recently.
Khan was in Dubai on Thursday (July 25) with Superstar co-star Bilal Ashraf to promote their new movie, which releases at Vox Cinemas in BurJuman for Eid Al Adha. Here, she met the fan, another Bilal, who said he once developed a concept for one of her TV commercials.
Expat Media captured the fun scene:
Speaking to Expatmedia.net, Pakistani expatriate, Bilal Alvi, said that he had been a “huge fan” of the actress for the past 15 years. The first time he saw her was when she hosted MTV Most Wanted.
“My relationship with Mahira goes back 15 years since the first time she said ‘Assalamu alaikum, this is Mahira Khan and you’re watching MTV Most Wanted’. Since that time I have become a huge Mahira Khan fan and I have had the pleasure of meeting her a few times in my life,” said Bilal, who is now based in Dubai.
“Meeting Mahira is always a pleasure and getting to dance with her today is like a dream come true,” he told Expatmedia.net with a huge grin. ICA/Expat Media
