The Karachi based actress' last big screen outing was in Shoaib Mansoor's highly acclaimed film 'Bol' (2011).
    
Mahira, who is married to her college sweetheart Ali Askari, is already a known face in India, thanks to her sensitive portrayal of Khirad in Pakistani TV drama 'Humsafar' on a leading channel.
    
SRK, 49, who is currently shooting for Yash Raj's 'Fan', is expected to start filming 'Raees' in February next year.

The shooting of the film will take place in Mumbai and the rural areas of Gujarat.
