Kabir Khan, who was in Pakistan to attend the marketing conference at MARCON 2016, had a shocking experience at the Jinnah International Airport in Karachi.
When the Bajrangi Bhaijaan filmmaker arrived at the airport to catch his flight for Lahore, he was surrounded by a group of angry Pakistanis.
The protestors started ranting about how Kabir’s films have often shown Pakistan in a bad light.
One of the protestors even took his shoe off and waved it in his face, as a mark of insult and threatened saying, “Ghoos ke maarenge.” Others around chanted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and ‘Shame Shame’.
Kabir maintained his calm as he made his way through the airport gate. Surprisingly, none of the security guards present on the premises came forward to control the situation.
In August last year, Pakistan banned the release of Phantom on a plea filed by JuD chief and Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed alleging that the film, set on post-26/11 attacks, contains “filthy propaganda” against him and his outfit. Similarly, Ek Tha Tiger was also banned upon its release in 2012.
