In her personal life, Mahira Khan got married for the second time in October 2023. She tied the knot with a Pakistan-based businessman, Salim Karim. Previously, the actress was married to Ali Askari, and the estranged couple has been co-parenting their only son, Azlan, after they parted ways in 2015. Sometime back, Mahira sat for an interesting interaction with Aamna Haider Isani on her YouTube channel, and she cleared the air about her husband, Salim’s profession. While rubbishing off the rumours that her husband is a 66-year-old business tycoon, Mahira said:

“He is not a tycoon, 66-year-old tycoon! Bechara, my Bechara. Not even close to being a tycoon or 66, but Insha Allah one day, who knows?”

When Mahira Khan rubbished off the rumours of her pregnancy

Just months after her marriage, rumours surfaced in the media claiming that Mahira would soon welcome her first child with her husband, Salim. However, when Mahira Khan graced the hot seat of her digital platform, Mashion, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, she cleared the air around such rumours. Mahira said:

“Oh, that I am pregnant. It’s not weird, it’s just a rumour. I don't know where they came up with it, I think it's because I've put on weight, but then they also said that I've left the Netflix series and a major film and whatnot. So, yeah but it's not true.”
