While Mahira Khan, the queen of Pakistani dramas, continues to charm audiences as Falak in Zindagi’s Shehr-e-Zaat, there are a few things that not too many people know about the petite powerhouse of talent. Besides being a very hardworking actress, she is also known to be a perfectionist. For every scene, Mahira is very particular that the authenticty remains intact and will go to any lengths to ensure it. In an upcoming episode of Shehr-e-Zaat that airs every Monday to Saturday at 8pm, she proves she’s Ms Perfectionist!

It’s commonplace to use duplicates in the entertainment industry for a scene that is out of the comfort zone for an actor. Mahira stands out from this pack! In Shehr-e-Zaat, there is a scene where Falak is frantic to erase all that she has previously done wrong and she desperately digs into the dirty water, trying to find that elusive something – God. Being the dedicated perfectionist that she is, Mahira Khan, did not shy away from using real mud instead of letting a duplicate do the scene. She submerged herself in the sticky mud full of stones and rocks in it.
