According to an article published by a leading daily, Mahira opened up about her little baby boy and the work she is taking up these days. In an interview, she categorically mentioned that Azlaan was her one and only priority at this time and she is even letting go off some good work at this time.
She was quoted as saying:
"I do only one film at a time. My first priority is my child. So it's a lot of hard work. But it can be done. It's all about choices. Many times I have to let go of good work. Fortunately the work I've done has worked for me."
No matter what, nothing can replace the importance of a child in a parent’s life. Mahira, we can understand how difficult it can be to raise a child single-handedly and we absolutely salute you for this.
