Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY - STAFF RE­PORTER

KARACHI—Bol­ly­wood di­rec­tor Kabir Khan, who was in Karachi to at­tend a mar­ket­ing sem­i­nar, had to face shoewield­ing an­gry pro­test­ers at Karachi air­port on his de­par­ture on Wed­nes­day.

The ‘Phan­tom’ di­rec­tor, who ar­rived at Karachi air­port to leave for Lahore, was sur­rounded by pro­test­ers who not only shouted anti-In­dia and pro-Pak­istan slo­gans but also ques­tioned Kabir Khan on why he did not make sim­i­lar movies about the In­dian in­tel­li­gence agency Research and Anal­y­sis Wing (RAW) ac­tiv­i­ties in Pak­istan.

“You peo­ple send Jha­dav and kill hun­dreds here, why don’t you make a movie about it,” a pro­tester asked the Phan­tom di­rec­tor.

An­other shoe-wield­ing pro­tester chased Khan to the de­par­ture lounge warn­ing the di­rec­tor about “In­dian con­spir­a­cies against Pak­istan army”. How­ever, Khan did not re­act and pro­ceeded to­wards the lounge.
