While the unofficial ban on Pakistani actors still continues in India after Uri attack last year. Actress Sara Khan recently faced the brunt of the tension between the two countries. Sara Khan who was shooting for a Pakistani show 'Lekin' was forced to stay back in Karachi for a week, after the authorities refused to issue her an NOC to fly back to her own country.
A source close to the actress revealed the whole situation and said, "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 recognised 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."
While on the issue Sara said,"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."
Well that's scary!
