10 movies Mahira Khan wants everyone to watch



Pyaasa (1957)pyasa

Director: Guru Dutt

This film is it. Watch it for the beautiful cinematography, the poetic songs, unforgettable dialogues, Waheeda Rahman … watch it for Guru Dutt!

The Lion King (1994)


the lion king

Directors: Roger Allers, Rob Minkoff

The Lion King is cartoon royalty!




Director: Danny Boyle

Just. Watch. It.


Blue Jasmine

Director: Woody Allen

Cate Blanchett makes it all look so easy; she’s such a fine actor. Blue Jasmine is one of Allen’s best works.


Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind


Director: Michel Gondry

It’s a strange thing … to watch a film based on an unreal concept that feels so close to home, so real. In the film, Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet are at their charming best.


Kramer vs. Kramer

Director: Robert Benton

Personally, I enjoy watching the first works of artists. This is Meryl Streep’s first film, but since it’s the majesty herself, she was perfect even in her first film. Dustin Hoffman and the boy who played the child are also brilliant.


The Godfather


Director: Francis Ford Coppola

It’s underrated. No, I’m serious. It is.

Pulp Fiction (1994)



Francis Ford Coppola

Director: Quentin Tarantino

It is the coolest gangster film! The chemistry between the cast members is insane.

Silver Linings Playbook (2012)




Silver Linings Playbook


Director: David O Russell

It’s so much more than just a rom-com. The direction and acting are flawless. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are perfect in it.

10 Things I Hate About You (1999)



10 Things I Hate About You

Director: Gil Junger

Yes. Please watch it. It’s one of the best teenybopper films. The writing is great, acting even better and it also has Heath Ledger in it.

The writer is a Pakistani actor who will be making her Bollywood debut alongside Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Raees’
