Mahira Khan has amassed 5 million ecstatic Instagram followers, 3 Lux Style Awards, and 5 Hum Awards in her first sprint of since she heard the word “action”, and since then, this beautifully natural and genuine person has been on amazing ride when it comes to her career.
Besides her impeccable take on style and being the only artist in Pakistan who has represented her country on an international forum, here are 5 significantly valuable and practical lessons anyone can learn from her life.
YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU WANT AND THAT A-OK!
“Through the times of turbulence, through the joys, through the ups and downs, through the mistakes we make and all the success we get, let nobody… nobody’s opinion define who you are, And if anybody defines who you are, let it be yourself. Because including me and all the women out there, we’re all worth it!”
This is what sums up the most important lesson we can learn from this diva. Knowing your worth and not letting wagging tongues dim your light or decide your worth is essential to success and peace of mind.
YOUR LIFE, YOUR CHOICE
From “mery lungs-meri marzi” to “my voice-my choice” we see her not taking shit from anyone out there having contrary beliefs. Juicing it down to another powerful teaching… know that you do not need validation and no amount of perfection can land you perfect in everyone’s eyes. SO stop trying too hard and live your life your way.
DO NOT FORGET TO GIVE BACK TO THE PEOPLE
Giving back to society is perhaps a necessary part we all should take notes about. Mahira Khan is part of several welfare activities helping to make a difference in the life of common men. She also has teamed up with Zindagi trust by Shehzad Roy and Aahung to combat child abuse and improving child safety in the country.

Imagine not having an identity, imagine feeling invisible, not having a place you can call home.. being a displaced person. The plight of refugees is indescribable. Pakistan has been doing its part and has set an example for the world by welcoming refugees for nearly four decades. This is a humanitarian cause and we all must do our part in raising awareness and doing whatever we can in sharing the responsibility of refugees around the world 🙏🏼 @refugees @unhcrpakistan @unitednations
HUMANITY HAS NO BORDERS
You would see her tending international negligence towards Sudan and visiting Afghan refugees with a big bright smile.
