This post is somewhat an emotional summary and very close to my heart.. Many of you didn’t know what was happening with me, I wouldn’t blame you I didn’t understand what had happened with me till recently.. 3 years ago, I started lose control over my body. I had Trigeminal Nueralgia, after a series of procedures it got under control. Thought that was the last of my worries. Not long after that my lower part of the body mainly my hip and lower back started to give away. I was going through these unexplainable excruciating pain, that had no diagnosis, 1 MRI to another and juggling like a ball between the best doctors this country had to offer no one had an explanation to these pains. I was unable to walk so I started limping my left leg. Since I have been a workaholic for the past 10 years, working is what I knew best. I stopped taking medication that slowed me down. And slowing down meant I was a ZOMBIE. I was taking every medication that pharma had to offer. Out of them steroids were the real killer. Which meant I had to be on anti depressants too. Decided to go cold turkey because I couldn’t let my work suffer. The only thing that kept me going was work. And that too became my healths downfall. That limp eventually led me on the wheelchair for 8 months. Now my battle was not only at work but inside me. My mind. I couldn’t let that go out of my control. There were some very very dark days for me. In order to win the battle I had to SURRENDER first. Surrender to everything that didn’t make sense, surrender to what the reality was, surrender to my negative thoughts in order to rise from it. I still didn’t have a diagnosis and Now I had to fight the biggest fight of my life with myself FOR myself. I have AUTO-IMMUNE DEGENERATION. There is no cure for my hip joint but my spine is manageable This post is an appreciation to how far I’ve come. From a wheel chair to a stick to dancing. As long as my good days are more than the bad ones I’m winning each moment. I couldn’t have gone through this without my main man @nadirzia, my family Tj Mama @majamshed @mjamshed @mahamj Lastly the person I need to thank after God is MYSELF. I couldn’t have done it without ME. 👊🏽
A star in her own right in Pakistan, Mahira recently appear on BBC’s Hardtalk where she spoke about her career and how she was not able to promote Raees in India and how the Shah Rukh Khan film never released in Pakistan.
“Bollywood was never really the aim actually,” Mahira said in the interview, “I mean sure you could argue that I could have done more films there, for sure I could have. But right after Raees I had already started working on Verna, even before our artists got banned in India. My focus was always Pakistan.”
She also said the ban on Pakistani artistes in India came as a “big jolt” but she has moved on. Her TV show Hamsafar, with Fawad Khan in the lead, is very popular in India too.
The actress is currently filming for Saat Din Mohabbat In and Maula Jatt 2.
