Kabir Khan, who was recently invited to Pakistan for a conference, seems to be in trouble. Kabir Khan had to deal with angry protesters at the Karachi International Airport in Pakistan on Wednesday (April 27). Khan was on his way to Lahore from Karachi when he was accosted by a group of angry protesters, several of them wielding shoes.
Kabir Khan was in Karachi on day-long visit to attend a conference and was heading to Lahore. But as soon as Kabir arrived at the Jinnah International airport in Karachi, a few people encircled him and started shouting slogans ‘Shame Shame’. Demonstrators shouting anti-India slogans mobbed the Bollywood director, loudly asking him why he did not make movies depicting the role played by the Indian intelligence agency RAW in Pakistan.
The director had two releases last year, Bajrangi Bhaijaan with Salman Khan and Phantom with Saif Ali Khan. Of the two, Phantom was met with a ban in Pakistan for its anti-Pakistan content. On his way to Lahore, Kabir had to deal with several furious Pakistani protesters who questioned the director about Phantom. In addition to that, protesters threw several anti-India and pro-Pakistan slogans at the director.
Kabir Khan’s Phantom was a fictional, make-believe end to the 26/11 Mumbai Attacks, where Saif’s character Daniyal Khan goes to Pakistan and kills four of the main accused in the case. The people killed by Saif in Phantom included the fictional counterpart of Jama’at-ud-Dawah (Lashkar-e-Taiba) chief Hafiz Saeed. Saif’s character also had a dialogue in Phantom, “Ghar mein ghus ke maarenge,” referring to his Daniyal going to Pakistan to kill the perpetrators of the 26/11 attacks.
