Despite a ban on Pakistani actors imposed by MNS, actress Mahira khan will not be replaced from her upcoming movie Raees due to the fact that the makers of the film have decided to shoot the remaining part of the movie at a secret location as they think that replacing her would not be a profitable decision.
The movie producers Ritesh Sindhwani, Farhan Akhtar and SRK and the director Rahul Dholakiya are all positive that by the time the film releases in January, the prevaling situations will come under control.
Mahira being a Pakistani actor, has been banned from working in Bollywood but with only few opening scenes left to be shot, the producers considered her to be a part of the movie as she was on the edge to complete her shoot and decided to take decision on practical grounds which will be cost-efficient and will not result them into loss.
According to the reports, the entire team will land in Abu Dhabi recreating the Mumbai set to complete the remaining part with Mahira and after having done that they will come back to Mumbai where SRK can shoot his part.
Taking into account, the story of the movie involves Mahira’s character from 18-year-old teen to a 34-year-old woman, it would really be difficult to find a quick replacement who would easily adapt herself into the character in a short span of time. Therefore, they have decided to hold on to Mahira and shoot her scenes at a secret place abroad.
