Pakistani actress who could have played the role of Nigar Johar

Here's what netizens have to say!

Aik Hai Nigar As you know, Mahira Khan will be playing the lead role in Lieutenant General Nigar Johar’s biopic. The teasers have already been released but netizens aren’t happy with Mahira Khan playing the role of Pakistan’s first female Lieutenant General.

Ever since the Humsafar actress was revealed as the main lead for this project, many people objected to the casting of the star. There has been lots of talk about how some of the other Pakistani actresses could have been better for this role.

The names of the two Pakistani actresses emerging more often are Sanam Baloch and Areeba Habib. Most of the people think that both Sana Baloch and Areeba Habib look somewhat similar to Nigar.

Reacting to the fans’ wish of seeing her play the role, Areeba Habib said that it’s a great compliment for her. 

Netizens believe there are not many similarities between Nigar Johar and Mahira Khan. They believe that the Raess actress has been cast because of her stardom. The concerns are genuine considering the fact that Mahira Khan hasn’t made any effort to physically transform herself for the role.

But, Khan cannot be entirely blamed since it’s the director or producer’s job to pick the right cast for the film.

Mahira Khan shared the teaser of the film on her Instagram and said that she is honored to be able to play a woman she admires so much.

Stars from the showbiz fraternity congratulated Mahira Khan on her new project. Zahid Ahmed said that we need more stories of our own heroes. Ayesha Omer said that “this is gonna be epic.”
