Along with her professional front, Mahira’s personal life garners media attention every now and then. Recently, a report went viral stating that the actress might be pregnant with her first child with Salim Karim. For those who don’t know, Mahira tied the knot with the businessman in October 2023 in an intimate ceremony in Pakistan. Before Salim, she was married to Ali Askari, and the two embraced parenthood with the arrival of their son, Azlan. But they parted ways in 2015.
After a netizen shared that Mahira is expecting her first child with her second husband, Salim, now, new reports state otherwise.

On February 11, 2024, one of the Redditors shared that Mahira Khan had dropped out of her first Netflix project, Jo Bachey Sang Samait Lo, and another unnamed film due to her pregnancy. The viral post mentioned that the actress is due somewhere between August and September 2024. But now, if the post is to be believed, it confirms that Mahira is not pregnant. However, there is no report confirming or denying if the actress has indeed opted out of the Netflix project or not.
Mahira Khan once graced the FWhy podcast, where she divulged details about her relationship with her ex-husband, Ali Askari, and their son, Azlan’s relationship with the latter’s current family.
