On January 8, 2024, the luxury fashion brand, Muse dropped a video on its official Instagram account in collaboration with the gorgeous Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan. At the beginning of the video, the 39-year-old actress donned an extravagant hot pink-hued saree featuring sparkly multicolour embellishments all over it. Mahira opted for a puffy full-sleeved blouse with the same detailing as her saree. She completed her look with dewy makeup comprised of smoky eyeshadowed kohl-rimmed eyes, bold maroon lips, and side-parted hair. The post is captioned as:

“The divine Mahira Khan pays homage to the eternal allure of screen siren Parveen Babi: two stars, two different eras, the same iconic glamour.”

Mahira Khan reveals that Indian actress, Parveen Babi is her style icon

In the next half of the video, the interviewer heaped praises on the Pakistani starlet, calling her “a film icon, who never has a day off”. Mahira then revealed that at the moment she has been working on a few projects, three to be precise. In the clip, Mahira was wearing a beautiful hot pink-hued silk tunic set featuring multicolour embellishments and golden thread work. She kept her tresses open and side-parted, and let her subtle makeup do all the talking.

The interviewer further said that along with being a great star, Mahira has also cemented her name as a ‘style icon’, and asked her “Where does that come from”. The Pakistani actress then takes a moment and reminisces about an anecdote. She said:

“I remember seeing this Time magazine cover, and it had the gorgeous Parveen Babi on it. It’s because of that cover I have watched her films, and some of her songs I just love. She was so beautiful, such a style goddess.”

Further into the conversation, the interviewer asked Mahira Khan, if she had a favourite song of the Indian screen siren, Parveen Babi. She blushingly sang the lyrics of the song, Jawani Janeman from the 1982 film, Namak Halaal. For the unversed, Indian actress and model, Parveen Babi was one of the most talented ones in the Indian film industry. She was among the highest-paid actresses of the 1970s and early 1980s.

Parveen was popular for her flawless acting style, and her modelling and extravagant fashion sense made her an icon of the 90s. Her career reached its peak when most actresses adhered to traditional Indian wear, but on the other hand, Parveen’s attire was completely Westernised, which gave her a certain freedom that other female artists of her time were denied in India's male-dominated film industry.
