Mahira has opened up about her absence from Pakistan on this voting day in her latest Instagram post and explained that her work obligations abroad were unavoidable.

"As much as I want to be there tomorrow, it is unfortunate that I can not be. There was absolutely no way to delay my work commitment which was scheduled months in advance, I tried my best. And so with a heavy heart I will not be voting this year," she wrote on Instagram.

But that won't stop her from urging all her followers to "get out and vote!"

"May this year bring the change we all have been waiting to see. InshAllah. Pakistan zindabad!!!"
