Not Working Together: Khalil ur Rehman Rules Out Collaborations with Mahira Khan
Renowned TV drama writer Khalil ur Rehman has stated that he will never work with Mahira Khan. Khalil ur Rehman is a well-known Pakistani writer who has penned scripts for numerous popular dramas and films, gaining popularity not only in Pakistan but also in India.

I am shocked at what I have just heard and seen!! Sick to the core. This same man who abused a woman on tv is revered and given project after project because of what? We are as much to blame if not more for perpetuating this thinking! #khalilurrehmanqamar
