Mahira Khan, Pakistan’s foremost actress, was married between 2007 and 2015. After her divorce from Ali Askari, she concentrated on their son Azlan as the only man in her life. Now she apparently revealed on social media that she has found love again and will once again be married.

Love at first sight
The story of when and how Mahira Khan and Ali Askari first met is a little muddled, depending on the sources you consider. We’ve found the information that she met him at the tender age of 15 and they fell in love at first sight, only getting married when she was 21, however.
But most sources seem to agree that they met in 2006, once again falling in love at first sight, however. At the time she would have been 22 years old already. It is at least widely agreed that the two were married in 2007 against her father’s wishes. Apparently, he felt she was throwing her life away, though strong-headed Mahira obviously did not agree.
Before giving birth to their son Azlan in 2009, she focussed on her career and became Pakistan’s best rated and highest paid actress. She once bemoaned the fact that she was not always able to be with her son due to her career, but his father took great care of him as well.
Announcing the divorce
Her fans were hugely surprised when Mahira announced her divorce in 2015. She’s always kept her private life very private indeed and not much is known about her marriage beyond the details already mentioned.
The whys and wherefores of her divorce have kept rumours circling, but no definitive statement has ever been made by the couple. Some even said she was divorced from Ali as early as 2012, only revealing that the divorce had happened years later.
We don’t know how much truth there might be to this and won’t speculate either because, at the end of the day, the two did divorce and it matters very little when it happened exactly.
Interestingly, however, most seem to agree that Mahira’s successful career put the final nail into the coffin of her marriage. She simply was too busy to properly focus on her marriage, though she certainly never neglected her son. Perhaps a modicum of jealousy over the success of his wife might have played a role as well. We don’t know.
Be that as it may, once the announcement was made, Mahira explained that her son was now the only man in her life and her main priority. Whilst she still worked as an actress, she made sure to only do one movie at a time to carefully select the projects she wanted to work on.
Ali moves on
In 2017 the news made the rounds that Ali Askari had married once again. His new wife is called Zara Dadabhoy and the couple reportedly married in February 2017.
Beyond that, we don’t really know anything about the couple. Regardless of when he was actually divorced from Mahira, Ali clearly moved on quickly.
Mahira’s upcoming wedding?
And now it appears that Mahira is set to get hitched as second time as well. Or is she? Honestly, we don’t really know. A rumour made the rounds that she was indeed getting married a second time, but whilst she apparently posted something on social media, we have found nothing about her soon-to-be husband or whether she may have already married again.
Mahira reportedly said this: “I was in love with someone. So I decided to tell him, that “I love you”. I got a response from him and we will marry at the end of this year or maybe the next year”.
But a groom’s name has never been revealed nor is there any indication that she is actually in a relationship. Unless wedding pictures are released at some point, we don’t know anything definitive.
Of course, we hope that she does find happiness once again. She continues to be a very successful actress and loving mother and a little personal happiness beyond that would certainly be nice.
