A picture of Mahira with Indian actress Sonam Kapoor also went viral on social media
May 15, 2018 (DESPARDES/PKONWEB) — Mahira Khan debuted on the Red Carpet at 71st Cannes Film Festival being held in Cannes, France, Monday evening, adding yet another feather to her cap.
Stars from around the world have walked the red carpet as L’Oreal ambassadors at the prestigious film festival, but this year marks the first time the official festival sponsor sent a star –and probably one of the most glamorous one, from Pakistan’s re-emerging tinsel industry.
Mahira, who has risen to prominence in recent years, was appointed L’Oreal Pakistan’s hair care ambassador last year.
“It’s a huge thing for me at least, and of course for the country… all eyes are on me.” the 33-year-old stunning beauty said during a seaside interview a stone throw away from the festival venue.
The actress looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet in an off-the-shoulder midnight-blue gown, making many skip a heartbeat!
A few hours back, she had tweeted about a last-minute wardrobe malfunction.
“On my way you guys.. dress didn’t turn up, but it’s raining and I’m nervous but maybe it’s a sign.. baarish aur mera purana rishta hai!” Mahira tweeted.
For Khan, the experience was an opportunity – not only to walk the longest and reddest red carpet of her life but to present to the world a side of Pakistan less-known.
Her elegant first look shared on social media left us spellbound.
A picture of Mahira with Indian actress Sonam Kapoor also went viral on social media, where the latter is seen holding the actress close as the former smiles.
Prior to her debut, Mahira gave an interview to FoxLiveIndia: “She’s dynamic, smart and even prettier in life than she is onscreen. We chatted about cinema in Pakistan, her journey and why she wants to do more television,” wrote Anupama Chopra.
