After having successfully made the transition to cinema and then Bollywood, you would think a star like Mahira Khan would never look back at her humble homeground, television.

But the Humsafar actress has said named "some excellent TV projects" as the secret to her success, and sent out a clear statement to her fans in an interview with Khaleej Times:

"TV is something I will never cut all ties with. Let me say this, I will never divorce television."

Could it be then that after the release of her next films, Ho Mann Jahaan (on January 1) and Raees (on Eid 2016), we will see her return to the small screen?

"If a really good script comes along, something that excites me, I would definitely go ahead and do it," she says.

Mahira adds, "Television has given me a lot of love and I have a lot of respect for that medium, but at the same time I would like to be involved in a project that offers a challenge or something novel."

So fans can definitely look forward to seeing Mahira in a new light!

She even leaves a piece of advice for aspiring actors:

"With actors, the best thing is that each one brings something different to the table. So my advice would be to know your strength and excel in that. Pretty soon you will carve a niche for yourself. There is never a formula or a shortcut to it. But it's your determination and your self-confidence."
