Pakistani actress Mawra Hocane, who is all set to debut in Bollywood with “Sanam Teri Kasam”, is all praise for fellow actress from her country, Mahira Khan, and says there is no competition with her.

Mahira will be seen opposite Shah Rukh Khan in “Raees”. Mawra says she looks upto the “Humsafar” actress and says she is proud of her.

“When Mahira’s show ‘Humsafar’ released I was not even an actor. I look upto her. She is stunning and truly gorgeous in the real sense. There is no competition at all. She has been longer in the industry. It has been only two-and-half years for me,” Mawra told PTI.

“I feel great that we will be debuting in Bollywood in the same year. I am really proud of her. It will be wonderful because we both will be nominated as debutantes and that is something fantastic,” she said.

Helmed by director duo Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru, “Sanam Teri Kasam” also stars Harshvardhan Rane.

The 23-year-old actress says the film, which will release simultaneously in India and Pakistan on February 5, has garnered tremendous buzz in her country.

“People in Pakistan did not expect the film to be this big. They are thrilled and the word of mouth is very positive there. No one my age has come to India and done a film. Nobody has been ‘launched’ in that sense. I am extremely grateful that I am a part of this film,” she said.

Mawra says she instantly came on board for the romantic-drama when she heard the narration.

“Radhika and Vinay had called me and they started the narration on Skype. The moment they said that it’s a story of a simple, bespectacled girl I knew I would be doing it. Because when you have a girl with spectacles, you will also have her transformation. I will get to show both the sides. I was on board instantly,” she said.

The actress, popular for her TV dramas like “Aahista Aahista” and “Ik Tamanna Lahasil Si”, says she is content with the way the film has turned out.

“I am not nervous really. I am not over-confident but very satisfied because what we wanted to create, we have achieved that. Everyone worked as a team and I am very pleased with the result,” she said.
