Famous Indian director Kabir Khan quietly landed in Pakistan and got to meet all the celebrities of Pakistan. The Bajrangi Bhaijaan director definitely enjoyed his visit.
It was Kabir’s first time in Karachi, a stay to express at Marketing Association of Pakistan’s annual marketing conference, MARCON.
“I’ve just landed, so I haven’t been able to see the city. But it’s lovely [to be here], I’m really happy that I am. I was in Lahore some months back, and that was my first time in Pakistan. Now, it’s my first time in Karachi, and I’m really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I’m here only for a day, but I hope to come back again.” he told reporters at a private dinner hosted by MAP.
Khan acknowledged that the conference was just a reason to visit Pakistan and that he anticipates to create some enduring relationships:
“I haven’t had a concrete conversation about making films together, but if we collaborate and do co-productions, it will have a great impact on politics. Our people-to-people contact will side-line the politics.”
When questioned to clarify the apparently conflicting outlines of his latest films, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Phantom, he said:
“The purpose of Phantom was to show that there are some factions in both countries that will always try to prevent people to people contact. I strongly believe that whenever terrorist’s attacks occur, the media of both our countries create a ruckus, which colours the perception of the people. But when a Chand Nawab and a Bajrangi meet, there will always be friendship.”
