Mahira Khan pens down emotional note about her time at Cannes

It was Mahira Khan’s first time attending the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, as the official spokesperson of hair and cosmetics giant L’Oreal from Pakistan, this year and the starlet has definitely not failed to wow everyone with her looks.

However, there’s something more than just her flawless looks, which has left a mark on the rest of the world.

As a woman and as L’Oreal’s rep from Pakistan, the 33-year-old actress shared her distinctive stories during various meetings and interactions with renowned female celebrities from around the globe off-and-on and at the end of it she says she feels 'more empowered than ever'.

As Mahira bids farewell to her massive debut at Cannes, the actress took to Instagram to pen down emotions about her time at the festival, in the following note: 

Oh Cannes you have a piece of my heart! Thank you for taking us in with open arms, you were warm and generous. I wish I could pen down my entire experience but that’ll be a long love letter for another time. However there are a few things I want to relay to all of you. As I sat in the car on my way to the airport I realised that I felt more empowered than ever before. And the reason was because of the amazing women that I met over the last three days. All these talented women had one thing in common - they lifted each other up. They were supportive and kind. They had each other’s backs. And that is the only (if any) key to success. It is empowering to sit with women and speak about the lines under your eyes or how fast your children are growing up. It’s a relief when it is your first time on the red carpet with hundreds of people photographing you, to get a ‘you’ve got this’ from the girl whose done this like a dream so many times. It was even more amazing to get all these lovely msgs from my industry back home. And the best family and friends one could ask for. Aah and my fan family, how I love thee! We are nothing alone, and that is something life keeps teaching me time and again. My @seherhafeez I love you. @amarfaiz for giving it your all. @shakeelbinafzal for keeping up with the insanity and @manekaharisinghani for being there always Loreal Pakistan , we did it! Thank you loreal Paris for having us.. can’t wait to see you again! À bientôt, Love love love X #lorealparis #lorealcannes #lorealpkatcannes #cannes2018 Ramzan Mubarak to all

Mahira, in a separate interview, also revealed how she was hugged by Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and that how ‘it was the warmest hug she received from someone in a long time’.

"Aishwarya came and hugged me. She gave me a long hug and I told her that it's the warmest hug anyone has given me really in a long time. So that was really sweet of her. Then we talked about our kids," Mahira shared.
