Mawra Hocane wants awards this year



Mawra Hocane, one of the prominent debutants this year, has grabbed the spotlight with her fearless, outspoken nature, just a few weeks before her movie.

Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru-directed ‘Sanam Teri Kasam,’ release.

In a recent interview, this 23-year-old newbie, plainly said that she wants to bag all the debut awards this year in her kitty, reports the Express Tribune.

Speaking about her fearless nature, Hocane said that there is nothing in this world that she can’t face.

Adding on to the interview, the star spoke about her co-star Harshvardhan Rane, a debutant himself, and gushed about the chemistry they share.

The movie’s fate in the Box-Office can be understood post-release (February 5), but this Pakstani beauty, who just stepped in the Bollywood business, seems to be making her place in the industry.

Pakistani actress Mawra Hocane, who is all set to debut in Bollywood with “Sanam Teri Kasam”, is all praise for fellow actress from her country, Mahira Khan, and says there is no competition with her.

Mahira will be seen opposite Shah Rukh Khan in “Raees”. Mawra says she looks upto the “Humsafar” actress and says she is proud of her.

“When Mahira’s show ‘Humsafar’ released I was not even an actor. I look upto her. She is stunning and truly gorgeous in the real sense. There is no competition at all. She has been longer in the industry. It has been only two-and-half years for me,

“I feel great that we will be debuting in Bollywood in the same year. I am really proud of her. It will be wonderful because we both will be nominated as debutantes and that is something fantastic,” she said.

Helmed by director duo Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru, “Sanam Teri Kasam” also stars Harshvardhan Rane. The 23-year-old actress says the film, which will release simultaneously in India and Pakistan on February 5, has garnered tremendous buzz in her country.

“People in Pakistan did not expect the film to be this big. They are thrilled and the word of mouth is very positive there. No one my age has come to India and done a film. Nobody has been ‘launched’ in that sense. I am extremely grateful that I am a part of this film,” she said.

Mawra says she instantly came on board for the romantic-drama when she heard the narration. “Radhika and Vinay had called me and they started the narration on Skype. The moment they said that it’s a story of a simple, bespectacled girl I knew I would be doing it.
