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.
