“The first reason for choosing Verna was that as an actor I wanted to stretch myself and this movie had that. Secondly when I had met Shoaib Mansoor sahab at a café in Karachi, my father had come to pick me up and I told him about the subject to which he said that I must not leave this movie as it was important to talk about such a topic,” said Mahira.

Revolving around the topic of rape and power dynamics, Verna has now released world over. But with her disclosing how her father was one of the reasons to say yes to the movie we also got to see that Mahira is very attached to her family and holds them at a very high regard. Mira Hashmi also asked Mahira if she had ever decided to forgo a role thinking what would people say?

“Yes absolutely, there was a role in Manto and this was post the play Shehrzaat, and the role in the movie was of Manto’s muse who is a courtesan. And for the first time my mother said don’t do this. I could have questioned amma but I just agreed. At that time I was not that fearless nor at a place to take a risk but today I might have done it,” shared the star.
