|Controversies||• In 2015, she made headlines with the news that she had a Swiss Bank account.
• In the 90's every actor dreamt of working with Subhash Ghai. However, working with the veteran director comes at a cost. Reportedly, whenever any actor was signed by Subash Ghai's production house - Mukta Arts - they had to pay 30% of their income if they worked with any other production house. Though Subash Ghai was the one to launch Mahima, it was also he who dragged her to court for violating the above-mentioned contract clause. After the success of Pardes, Mahima had a plethora of offers on the table. Naturally, she began working with other renowned filmmakers, not caring about giving the 30% of her income to Ghai's Mukta Arts.
