Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan’s reunion at the recently concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL, the Pakistani version of Indian Premier League) has sent the Internet into a meltdown. Mahira Khan tweeted a selfie with her Humsafar co-star Fawad Khan and actor Hamza Ali Abbasi, which fans have declared “selfie of the year.” Mahira and Hamza are brand ambassadors of PSL team Peshawar Zalmi, which played against Fawad Khan’s Islamabad United in the finale. Mahira Khan captioned it: “Hogaya chase #PSL2018 #fatsosofMJ” Don’t get baffled, we’ll decode Mahira’s cryptic caption. Last month, Mahira in a jestful manner said that Fawad’s team could not chase the target but in the PSL finale match Islamabad United defeated Peshawar Zalmi. As for the hashtag “#fatsosofMJ” – that’s a reference to Mahira, Fawad and Hamza Ali Abbasi’s upcoming film Maula Jatt 2.
