Pakistani superstar Mahira Khan opened up about her relationship with her boyfriend Salim Karim. The actress was talking to Pakistani designer HSY on an Instagram live session and said that Karim is a blessing in her life.
During the live session, HSY revealed Mahira’s boyfriend’s name, which made her a little annoyed initially, but then she candidly talked about the love of her life.
HSY asked, “You are in love now, his name is Salim. When you look deep into his eyes, what is the first thing that comes to your mind?” A little hesitant Mahira said that she is not comfortable talking about it as it will be everywhere if she speaks about it. But then she chose a dialogue from her famous show, Humsafar, to explain how she feels about her love life.
“There’s a line in Humsafar, which I thought was beautiful, where Ashar says to Khirad, ‘Pata nahi tum mujhe kis naiki kay badlay main miley ho (I don’t know what I did right to deserve you.) I think the same about him.”
She added, “I don’t know what have I done in my life, [but I] must have done something good because of which Allah blessed me with.” HSY completed her sentence and said, “Because of which Allah blessed you with Salim.”
A happy and giggling Mahira then talked about her son, Azlan, with ex-husband Ali Askari. She said, “I feel like this for my child too. My child is someone I feel super grateful for. He is the centre of my world, everything revolves around him, but I feel the same way about him, the people I love; that there is something that I must have done [to deserve them].”
She added, “I was such a heart breaker but I realized Allah will not be too happy with my prude behaviour. I hope that we can protect this because I feel like is you want any relationship to work long, you have to work at it and strive to make it better.”
Last year in April, there were reports that Mahira Khan got engaged to Pakistani entrepreneur Salim Karim in an intimate ceremony in Turkey. A photo of the two started doing the rounds on the internet in which the couple was seen standing next to each other.
Salim Karim is the CEO of a Pakistani startup called Simpaisa. Last year, in April, Mahira Khan had shared photos from a wedding party, in which Salim Karim was seen standing right next to her.
Mahira, who made her Bollywood debut with Raees opposite Shah Rukh Khan, was previously married to Ali Askari. They tied the knot in 2007, and got divorced in 2015. Mahira’s son Azlaan was born in 2014.
