Bajrangi Bhaijaan director Kabir Khan was in Karachi, Pakistan to speak at the Marketing Association of Pakistan’s annual marketing conference, MARCON.
Before leaving for Pakistan, the filmmaker had tweeted about how excited he was about visiting the neighbouring country. However, in a shocking turn of events, Kabir was hounded and verbally attacked by a mob outside the Karachi International Airport.
As soon as he entered the airport, a man started severely criticising him for allegedly making anti-Pakistan films. He also dared the filmmaker to make a film on Muslims that are killed in India. Soon, few other men joined him which eventually led to slogans being shouted against the filmmaker. Slogans like ‘Shame Shame’ and ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ were repeated the most.
The protestors might be hinting at Kabir’s film, ‘Phantom’ which allegedly showed Pakistan in a poor light. A person in the mob also criticised Kabir for a dialogue from the film, that went, ‘Andar ghus ke maarenge,’ which was eventually chopped off from the final print.
Surprisingly, no security personnel or police officials were present there to stop the protestors from hounding Kabir, despite it being an international airport.
