Rumors of the Indian actress being jailed in Pakistan caught everyone’s attention the other day. The actress was in Pakistan shooting for her second drama serial Laikin.
Rumor has it, that she was being held back because she stayed in Pakistan, despite the expiration of her visa.
However, she thrashed the rumors and according to a source close to her,
“Sara was scheduled to return on March 28. However, there were no flights available to India for the next two days, which forced her to extend her stay. When she approached the immigration counter at Karachi airport on March 30, the staff recognized her.
They then cited Mahira’s example and said, `Remember how Mahira was treated by your people? How can we let you go so easily, especially when the equation between the two countries is so critical?’, After she pleaded with them, they relented, but delayed issuing the NOC by a week. It was quite scary.”
She obviously changed her ignorant stance after the incident,
“There is speculation that I was arrested in Pakistan, but that’s not true. There was no restriction on my movement and I was not ill-treated. In fact, they were quite courteous. But yes, the delay did inconvenience me as I had to commence the shoot of my new soap in India.
After this incident, I would like to assert that East or West, India’s the best.”
Let’s hope the two countries learn to bury the hatchet in the near future.
