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,” Mawra told PTI.

“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.
