Shoaib Mansoor feels I'm better at singing than acting: Mahira Khan

Mahira Khan has proven her acting prowess in Pakistan and across the border but will we be seeing her sing on the big-screen too?

In an interview with DNA India, the Raees star hinted that in her next with Shoaib Mansoor her fans may just see her sing.

When asked whether she's a singer, Mahira was quick to dismiss the notion: "No no! Although Shoaib Mansoor feels I am a singer. He feels I am better at singing than acting."

Turns out, the director wants her to sing in his upcoming film, Verna.

"He wants me to sing in our new film together called Verna," adds Mahira. "He knows his music. But I can’t! I am extremely self-critical."

In an earlier statement, Mansoor said, "This film is being made by a man of Pakistan, to urge the men of the world to listen to women. It will encourage women to speak up. Khuda kay liye bol verna... (For God's sake, speak up, or else...)"

Mansoor has also written the script of the film and like his previous film (Khuda Kay Liye), this one also promises to tackle social issues.

I am sure your singing couldn't be as bad as your acting!

Shoaib Mansoor may be trying to send you a polite message

@ajay If Katrina and Aishwarya rai can survive and make it big in the film industry solely on the strength of their looks, style and fan following as divas so can Mahira as she is extremely loved and popular in Pakistan and could have done well in India as well if the artistes were not banned.

@fayza But why India?

@ajay coming from the people who are notoriously bad at acting. SRK can't act one bit but has a trademark style as does Mahira. She is a hard worker and lets not be blinded by your own jingoistic worldview.

I just am in love with that picture!

Shoaib Mansoor. Legend.

@fayza Where is the comparison? Katrina & Ash are internationally renowned superstars. All you need to know is that she was given a propping role in an Indian movie before she was heard making hateful remarks about Bollywood.

@ajay still better actress then katrina, ashwariya, kareena and all those who are just being casted on looks.

Don't know much about her singing but her acting is really good.
