Once again, Pakistani actress Mahira Khan is grabbing the eyeballs. A video from an award function has surfaced online, in which she can be seen being kissed forcefully on the cheek by Javed Sheikh. Needless to say, the video has gone viral on the social media.
Mahira Khan, who made her Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Raees, recently attended the 17th Lux Style Awards, that was held in Lahore where the talented actress won the Best Actress award for her performance in Verna.
As per the video, when Mahira Khan went up on stage to receive her award from fellow colleagues from the industry Mawra Hocane and Javed Sheikh, she first greeted Mawra and then moved towards veteran actor Javed Sheikh to take her award. It was then that an awkward moment was captured by the cameras, when Javed Sheikh can be seen trying to plant a kiss on her cheek while Mahira Khan tried to look away.
The special kissing moment irked the netizens, as they feel that the actor’s greet to Mahira Khan was ‘inappropriate’. Few netizens went ahead and started spreading negativity with their hate-comments.
Mahira took to her Twitter to slam the haters with a strong message as she tweeted, “I have just woken up to such silly stuff floating around. It’s good to be aware and have an opinion but for Gods sake don’t use anything and everything to make news. Javed Sheikh of all people! He is a legend and a mentor to all of us in this industry. Would vouch for him always.”
