Word has it that Sara Khan of Bidaai fame was held by the cops in Pakistan. Reason? She reportedly extended her stay beyond what was specified in her visa. This resulted in six days legal detention for the actress and fine. However, she has returned after completing some paperwork. Sara was shooting for a Pakistani show in the country. She has starred in a Pakistani film before, but this is her first TV show there.
Talking about this, Sara said “Whatever role that I have done be it a Naagin in Sasuraal Simar Ka and now a Daayan in Kawach, I have done with conviction and now it’s an honoor to do my first Pakistani Drama series. In Pakistan, serials and films do not have a demarcation like in India. In fact, the Pakistani TV industry is biggest there. So, I am super excited.”
But the actor hasrubbished the rumours saying that she had to stay back to get the NOC from Pakistan ministry and was never in police custody. “I was told to stay back for my NOC and I stayed in my five-star hotel, not in police custody. I don’t know who the f**k is spreading such news. I was not doing anything illegal there”.
Caught with the rumours about her being arrested in Pakistan, Sara said, “Throughout my trip, I have been active on social media, how can people spread such stupid rumours. What the f**k…I am shooting for my show there.”
She says Pakistanis love Indian artistes. “They appreciate our culture and want to travel to India. They also enquire if they will be treated well when they come here. I tell them that Indians welcome everyone as we believe in Atithi Devo bhava.
About IMPAA’s ban, she says, “I don’t support it. Art has to be above politics. Artists believe in spreading love, peace and brotherhood. I want to emphasise that terrorism in any form, anywhere, needs to be condemned unequivocally. I hope India and Pakistan can bridge their differences and work towards peace and understanding.”
Reports of actress Sara Khan jailed in neighbouring country Pakistan spread like fire forcing the actress to react.
Sara is the first Indian actress to do a Pakistani show which is produced by top notch producer Sana Shahnawaz. The serial is directed by Aabid Raza.
