So we wish to be that person.

“Also, since we are artistes, we consider that’s a problem we all suffer. We are dreamers, so we are constantly looking during this is going to happen, and this is overtly all we am meditative about all a time, that one day we will go to a cinema residence and there only won’t be adequate space to fill it.” Mahira is now filming for Saat Din Mohabbat In and Maula Jatt 2.
