So even now when I meet an older lady who says that she didn’t like the pictures, I’m quick to apologize.”
But Mahira is not one to shy away from the fact that being a celebrity means living up to the expectations of their fans. It’s the same disappointment that my nani or my mamoo would have felt seeing that. Related News

She says, “Thankfully, ‘Power Di Game’ was ready to be released, which I thought was perfect timing, so I just posted that as sort of a response to the trolls. I’m not talking about the trolls but those who were genuinely disappointed to see those pictures. But to be honest, I understand where all the criticism came from and it didn’t come from a place of hate. She confidently says that she is a good role model, “People ask me if I’m a good role model for my fans, and my response to that is that yes, I am a role model but I’m not the perfect role model. Trollers were quick to criticise Mahira for wearing a ‘short’ dress and also for smoking despite being a ‘woman’. The two were seen casually strolling the streets of New York with cigarettes in hands. The Raees actor says that she knows why people were genuinely disappointed in her like her elders would be and how she now is quick to apologise when somebody points out the pictures.
