She masterfully shut down ageist comments
When Firdous Jamal made an inappropriate comment about Mahira's age, claiming she should play mothers, she made sure to remind everyone that not only has she already played a mother in the iconic Humsafar, but she plans on "staying in the industry till I'm playing a grandmother and even a great grandmother and I actually look forward to that."
