Pakistani superstar Mahira Khan is expected to return to Indian screens with her upcoming web series 'Yaar Julahay'.

A series of dramatic readings will air on Zee Theatre as the most recent project. According to Bollywood Hungama, the 'Raees' actress will appear in the first episode of the 12-part Zee Theatre series. 'Guriya', a classic story by Ahmad Nadeem Qasmi, will be read by her.
