Mahira Khan’s wedding to businessman Salim Karim was recently celebrated in Bhurban, Pakistan, and it was a beautiful event. The famed Pakistani singer Abida Parveen gave a moving performance at the sangeet, a musical night held before the wedding. Mahira was kind enough to give a glimpse of this magical evening, in which she and Salim could be seen dancing to the music as Abida performed.
Mahira was ethereal in an embroidered lehenga as she danced with Salim and their close-knit group of relatives and friends to the beautiful music in the video. The presence of famous Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, however, overshadowed everything else. The actor from The Legend of Maula Jatt wore a white kurta paired with a brown shawl. He joined the other guests in watching Abida’s rendition of Tu Jhoom with rapt attention.
The outdoor setting, bathed in the soft light of hundreds of candles, was ideal for the musical evening. The newlyweds, Mahira and Salim, walked down the aisle hand in hand to applause and congratulations from their guests. Fawad appeared briefly in the video, and he caught a glimpse of the couple as they entered.
Mahira Khan posted a heartfelt tribute to Abida on Instagram, detailing her undying admiration for the late singer. Many viewers immediately recognized Fawad and expressed their joy and admiration at his attendance at the party. “No way! ‘Fawad was there,’ one ecstatic supporter gushed. “I just noticed Fawad Khan in the most beautiful pose ever, and I have melted like crazy,” said one more. “I only see Fawad,” someone else added.
It’s priceless when Fawad Khan, in the audience, gives you that piercing look. I had no idea I was capable of feeling such joy for a complete stranger until I met Mahira. One of her fans wrote, “I wish the best for her in everything she does.” As the celebrations progressed, it became clear that Mahira and Salim were embarking on a promising new chapter in their lives together.
Meanwhile, Mahira and Fawad, who most recently costarred in The Legend of Maula Jatt, will be reuniting for Jo Bachay Hain Sang Samait Lo, Netflix’s highly anticipated Pakistan-set original.
