Mahira Khan showers her bestie with a heartfelt throwback
Pakistan’s leading actress Mahira Khan introduced her best friend Narissa Dharani in an expressive post on Instagram.
The actress took to embrace their friendship in a lengthy note, stating how they met in college and have comforted each other since then through every thick and thins of life.
The actress went down memory lane and shared how her friend faced difficulties after her father’s demise but took the responsibility of her late father’s automotive business at the age of 23.
Mahira also shared that her friend was the first Pakistani female CEO in the auto industry.
“She used to wake up in cold sweats when her father passed away while we were in college, she would cry.. but she never let her mother see it. She protected her sisters fiercely. And at the age of 23 she took over a then-small company of her fathers. She worked day and night, surrounded by only men,” the post read.
“And day before, when I watched her on stage making her dream come true, it felt like life had come a full circle. She is the only female CEO in the automotive industry in Pakistan.”

I want to tell you all this story.. story of a girl I met years and years ago. Story of someone who has the biggest heart in the world. I remember meeting Naroo in college thanks to @sanahafeezsheikh 😘🙏🏼 Blaring desi music and some algebra books in her car. That was it. She was there for me when no one was around. She put up with my loser behaviour. She listened patiently while I told her all my dreams. She used to wake up in cold sweats when her father passed away while we were in college, she would cry.. but she never let her mother see it. She protected her sisters fiercely. And at the age of 23 she took over a then small company of her fathers. She worked day and night, surrounded by only men ( at that point). And all the while still making us all feel that she’s there for us. And day before, when I watched her on stage making her dream come true, it felt like life had come a full circle. She is the only female CEO in the automotive industry in Pakistan. She told all of us that once at a conference they were welcomed as – Good evening Lady and Gentlemen. Aaaah! I truly believe success comes from hard work and good intentions. But dreams.. dreams come true because some kindness somewhere has just worked, someone’s prayers for you have been accepted. And imagine someone who is always kind to people, that’s my naroo.. ♥️ Naroo, the day Penny kicked us out of our apartment and you took me and Hissaan in, I prayed for you so hard. I believe my prayers have something to do with you being on that stage, as does anyone who has known you because that’s ALOT of prayers. I love you and have always been proud of you. To you my Naroo, to you forever inshAllah 💋
Mahira also revealed how her bestie offered shelter when she along with her brother were evicted at one point in life.
She concluded the note saying that her prayers were a contribution to Dharani’s success and wellbeing.
