The Raees actress looked flawless in her white gown at the red carpet. She dedicated her award to Pakistan and said, "Being awarded internationally feels like your country has been awarded. You are there because of the love and respect the people of your country have given you. Our efforts get recognised due to hard work.”

She expressed her passion at the event saying, “I am Mahira Khan from Pakistan always”. She posted the picture and video at the award ceremony on Twitter.
