Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has regretted the streaming giant's spat with the organisers of the Cannes Film Festival, saying "sometimes we make mistakes".Netflix had pulled out of the famed film festival after the organisers announced a ban on films from the main competition which do not have a proper theatrical release in France. She was honoured at the Beirut International Awards Festival 2017, Masala UAE Annual Awards 2017 and the most recent UK Asian Film Festival 2018, where she also spoke about Pakistan's film industry. She will be the first Pakistani to represent the country for the retail brand, according to L'Oreal spokesperson. Mahira joins the L'Oreal family which already includes Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone from India. She will be joined by Hollywood and Bollywood A-listers at the upcoming event. "I am glad that I got this opportunity", Mahira stated in a recent interview.

"I think we got into a more hard situation with the Cannes Film Festival than we meant to because, you know, we're not trying to disrupt the movie system; we are trying to make our members happy". Founded in 1946, the invitation-only festival is held annually (usually in May) at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès. The trio will walk the red carpet from May 10 to May 15.
