Mahira Khan was in the news for all the wrong reasons. The furore over her pics with Ranbir Kapoor (yes, THOSE pics), enjoying a smoke at a New York street took the internet by storm a week ago and led to a huge backlash from her fans. The hypocrisy and the hate that was spread on social media led to Mahira keeping a rather low profile. Thankfully Ranbir stepped in and issued a statement in her support but the damage was done.
But as they say, you can’t keep a good spirit down for too long! Mahira, who hasn’t said a word about the controversy made a comeback to social media in style today and in the best way possible – releasing the teaser of Verna, her next film with Shoaib Mansoor.
In the impressive teaser, Mahira is seen in an avenging angel mode. Rushing into what looks like a bathroom, a dressed-in-black, make-up free Mahira can be seen attacking someone with full force swearing and looking REALLY angry even as the background score Power di Game keeps up the tempo.
Meanwhile Mahira made her social media comeback in style. After lying low, post Ranbir-gate, the actress returned to twitter with a simple word ‘Aa gayi’ – meaning, I have returned. This was in response to a fan telling her to come back.
She then shared the link of the teaser as well as an interesting pinned tweet that read ‘My heart is in my mind. I think this is why I am an artist’ - Nayyirah Waheed.
Verna is slated to release on November 17 this year.
Meanwhile check out the teaser.
