Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Phantom and Ek Tha Tiger director Kabir Khan was heckled at Karachi airport on April 27 for making ‘anti-Pakistan’ films.

Kabir Khan was in Karachi on day-long visit to attend a conference and was heading to Lahore. But as soon as the director arrived at the Quaid-e-Azam international airport in Karachi, a few people encircled him and started shouting slogans ‘Shame Shame’.

Watch the video:

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 angry protesters shouted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and anti-India slogans while confronting the director as he walked
into the departure lounge.

The director had defended his film during the seminar, insisting people misunderstood its purpose as he highlighted
the role of bad elements in both countries.

Kabir Khan’s films like Phantom, Ek Tha Tiger were banned in Pakistan at the time of their release.”Phantom”, based on a novel by S. Hussain Zaidi, was banned by the Lahore High Court.

Starring Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif, “Phantom” is about a retired Indian Army officer who leads a mission to kill Pakistani terrorist leader Hafiz Saeed.

Kabir Khan’s “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” received a warm response in Pakistan, where Indian movies are always in great demand.

    stanis are always loving but there are some people who don't follow the law.They get emotional and don't know what they are doing.We respect Kabir Khan and his movies and would like to see more movies which takes India and stan closer.There are low cl people in both countries and soon there will be an action taken because stanis will not be silent.Some days ago an one more incident occured as Junaid K=Jamshed was attacked and the law breakers are Behind the Bars so the same action will soon be taken.#Give respect#Kabir Khan#

        Exactly my point. RAW trains people like Doval who will never get caught and even if they do, they will never give stan a confession. They will not train a "spy" like Jadav who doesn't even know which nationality's pport he should carry. All of the "evidences" that you cite are of no avail. I have already told you why these "evidences" are ridiculous and could easily have been planted by the stani Army to manufacture this narrative. As for Ajit Doval, I have seen those videos and know for a fact that he said India "may" help insurgents in Balochistan. There is a sea of a difference between "may" and "will/is". Just because he said that he can do something doesn't mean he is doing it. Naela Baloch and other Balochistan seperatists themselves are trying tooth and tail to garner Indian support for their cause...and surprise surprise, they themselves have called the Jadav story a hoax saying that India is not providing any support to them yet inspite of their pleas since decades. If your Army is so confident about the Jadav being a "RAW spy", then why don't they give the Indian consulate access to him? The only reason why your Army is too chicken to provide consular access to Jadav is because they know that if they do, then their elaborate hoax will be called out. Your Army has been feeding nonsense to you stanis for decades to ensure that it remains the most powerful eny in the country - even more powerful than your democratically elected govt. And people like you are responsible for making democracy a joke in stan.

            After what stan's involvement in spreading terror in India, we, Indians, will be proud if India did some covert operations of its own to give the stanis a taste of their own medicine. But alas, that is only a dream. India knows only too well that the biggest enemies of stan is stanis themselves. You guys don't need India or RAW to destabilize or destroy you. Your army and your citizens will do the needful.
