Pakistani actor Mahira Khan who recently tied the nuptial knot with her long-time lover and businessman Salim Karim has dismissed the rumours surrounding her pregnancy.
As per reports, the speculation gained traction after a Reddit post went viral that suggested that the Humsafar actress has withdrawn from Netflix's 'Jo Bachey Sang Samait Lo' and an untitled film due to an impending pregnancy.
It also claimed that Mahira Khan is expecting her second child, the first with Salim Karim. The post also hinted that the expected arrival of the baby around August or September.
“So, I got this news from a close source that she opted out of the esteemed Netflix project alongside a big film as she’s expecting her second child somewhere in August or September. An announcement could be made soon or not if she chooses to announce it after birth but as she’s a big celeb and can’t keep it lowkey for long, I personally feel that she will announce,” read the Reddit post.
However, Mahira chose to clear the speculations on the pregnancy claims and leaving the Netflix series. Refuting the rumours, in an interview with Express Tribune, she clarified, "It’s not true that I’m pregnant. And I haven’t left the Netflix series."
Notably, Mahira and Salim Karim had a lavish wedding on October 1, last year in the presence of their families and loved ones. She also shared pictures from her picturesque wedding on Instagram, which soon went viral. The actor was previously married to Ali Askari and has a son from the marriage. They parted ways in 2015.
