MUMBAI -- Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has assured Pakistani actress Mahira Khan that they will make a good on-screen couple in their upcoming crime-thriller Raees.
The movie, being directed by Rahul Dholakia, will mark Mahira's Bollywood debut.
Shah Rukh's sweet message for the 30-year-old Humsafar actress came after Mahira shared her reaction to a recent Shah Rukh-Kajol still from their movie Dilwale.
Mahira, who has been open about her admiration for Shah Rukh, had tweeted, "Uffff! You both, Uff!" to which the 49-year-old Chennai Express star replied, "@TheMahiraKhan just saw your tweet. 'Uff' we will look good in Raees too. Hope all is well with you and family."
