Va va voom! We are totally swooning over Mahira Khan these days. Our lovely lady is making way into our hearts through her first ever Bollywood movie, Raees, that too with the King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan.
Ever since the news of them starring together came out, we could not wait for the official trailer. The trailer, which released a month ago, only gave us a sneak peak of Mahira, left us wanting to see more of her. Lo and behold, our wish came true when we got not one but two songs featuring Mahira Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.
Playing a Pathani Muslim girl in the film, Mahira gives us ‘Humsafar’ vibes in the first song titled ‘Zaalima’. Move over Asher-Khirad, we have now fallen in love with Raees-Aasiya. Complimenting Shah Rukh Khan, Mahira manages to look sultry yet sophisticated in an all black lace number paired with smoky eyes and nude lips. Minimal makeup paired with all black and a tinge of sparkle shining in the scorching desert heat has us head over heels for our new favorite pair.
Although the song has King Khan but we cannot take our eyes off our own Khan. If someone can carry fitted anarkalis and look like sheer class, that has to be Mahira Khan. Looking ethereal in an all white anarkali adorned with sequins and huge jhumkey, Mahira makes us wonder if we can ever do justice to neutrals like she does. Yet again, we cannot help but compare her white ensemble with one of her looks as Khirad from Humsafar. It seems like a lot of fashion inspiration was taken from her hit drama to make the audience fall back in love with her.
Silhouettes accentuating Mahiras figure, minimal makeup and a statement pair of earrings throughout the song has been the name of the game for her looks. For someone as beautiful as her, it is safe to say she can easily carry off any look.
The second offering by Raees, ‘Udi Udi Jaye’ starts off with Mahira in lace shalwar kameez yet again with minimal makeup and jhumkiyan. A staple look for our beautiful Mahira, we are spellbound when we see her in a traditional colorful attire doing Garba.
A festive song displaying an array of colors leaves us mesmerized and glued to our screens. Not letting go of the minimal makeup or jhumkiya, the stylist takes Mahiras style up a notch by giving her a pop of color on the lips paired with heavier jewellery for the extra oomph factor.
If ‘Zaalima’ was all about neutrals, ‘Udi Udi Jaye’ focuses on colors, traditional polki or kundan jewellery. Also, we cannot help but notice her ‘sexy’ back in both ‘Zaalima’ and ‘Udi Udi Jaye’. A huge shout out to the stylists, Shabana, Krys and Sheetal for staying true to the culture and giving Mahira exquisite looks.
We cannot wait to see what more the movie has to offer. Do you love Mahiras styling, let us know.
