Mahira Khan dedicates Women’s Day to her mother

LOLLYWOOD: As the world celebrated the International Women’s Day, numerous resilient and invincible women figures came out emerging that played a part in molding shining individuals that impact society today.

Pakistan’s highly-adored star Mahira Khan may be the pin-up for many but the actor stepped forward unveiling the woman who she looks up to everyday.

Turning to Instagram, the Humsafar star shared a picture of her mother holding baby Mahira in her hands along with a poignant and emotional note for her.

“Here is a picture of my Ama from the day that I was born. She has had rheumatoid arthritis for the last 30 years. She’s been in pain ever since. Despite that, she has worked as a teacher most of her life. Raised me and my brother, while running our home. She has trouble doing normal day to day things now – like walking, taking a bath or even making her own hair,” she wrote.

Here is a picture of my Ama from the day that I was born. She has had rheumatoid arthritis for the last 30 years. She’s been in pain ever since. Despite that, she has worked as a teacher most of her life. Raised me and my brother, while running our home. She has trouble doing normal day to day things now – like walking, taking a bath or even making her own hair. Now here’s the thing – she smiles through it all. She is always grateful. Always thanking God for little things. She keeps telling us ‘tender mercies’ is what one must be grateful for. She enjoys her tea and makhan toast like no other. And even though she can’t dance, she doesn’t miss a chance to groove to the music she loves. Today and every single day I want to be like her. Happy women’s day to all you women, bravely going through life with a smile on your faces! ❤️ P.S I asked her if I could post about her illness and she allowed me to do so. She did not approve of the photo though 🤦🏻‍♀️ posting anyway 🙂
