Pakistani actress Mahira Khan has again been caught amid a controversy. After the whole buzz over the picture with Ranbir Kapoor that went viral, Mahira is once again in the headlines. The actress was recently awarded at the Lux Style Awards 2018, but what grabbed everyone’s attention was the awkwardness between Javed Sheikh and Mahira.
Veteran actor Javed Sheikh tried to kiss the actress on the cheek while presenting the award and she flinched away. Have a look at the moment.

Fans have been criticising the actor for the cringe-worthy act and now the Raees actress Mahira has come to his rescue.
On Thursday, Mahira took to Twitter and reacted to the video that has gone viral. She wrote, “I have just woken up to such silly stuff floating around. It’s good to be aware and has an opinion but for God’s sake don’t use anything and everything to make the news. Javed Sheikh of all people! He is a legend and a mentor to all of us in this industry. Would vouch for him always.”

And this is how the Twitterati had to say about Mahira’s take on the incident.
Well honestly you did make the legend look like a fool so that’s that. I’m sure his intentions were not bad or anything, he’s a senior member of our film industry. If you’ve said u didn’t want him to do that, that would have been understandable. This tweet doesn’t make sense.

You would feel proud if it was shahrukh in place of javed, then why showing resistence to javed, after all you people feel really proud in following this indian stage tradition

However, Javed Sheikh took the high road and posted a picture with Jerjees Seja (CEO of Pakistan’s largest TV network, ARY Digital Network) and Faysal Qureshi (Pakistani actor), totally hinting at the incident. The caption read, “Sheikh ab u are a true legend of Pakistani film industry and always a great sport. Social media can create anything out of nothing but there are very few ppl who can laugh at it like you do.”
Although the fans are freaking out over the video, the actors involved dodged it like it’s nothing. Well, that’s the best way to deal with such controversies.
