Ever since the coronavirus brought a global lockdown, flights have been suspended throughout the world. And because the spread of the virus is nowhere near slowing down, there has been no update whatsoever about the resuming of the flight operation around the globe.
Because of this dilemma, Pakistani celebrities, including Shamoon Abbasi, Sara Loren, Mohib Mirza and Sanam Saeed, who had flown to Thailand to shoot for their film Ishrat Made In China have been stuck there.
The team was due to return on March 25th but a flight operation suspension was imposed before that.
Shamoon Abbasi, one of the actors of the films, who recently updated the team’s situation in Thailand on his social media, has now uploaded a video, requesting the Pakistani government and authorities to help bring them and other stranded Pakistanis from Thailand.
Taking to his social media, Shamoon Abbasi in a video stated, “We heard Asad Umar’s conference of and came to know that PIA would bring back stranded Pakistanis from Britain and Canada. Since we’re stuck here for the past 15 days we would want the government to look into this matter as well.”
“We’re 21 people here, Sara Loren, Mohib Mirza, Sanam Saeed, Iman Syed and 14 people from the crew and the expenses have been increasing,” added Shamoon further.
“We know that PIA will begin operations to bring back stranded Pakistanis from England and Canada but there has been no mention of Thailand as yet. I would like to request the foreign ministry, Asad Umar and also PM Imran Khan to look into the matter,” said Shamoon requesting if a route could be arranged so that the team of the film and 150 other stranded Pakistanis from Thailand could be brought back to Pakistan.

“I would like to personally request Mr. Imran Khan to look into the matter because we, actors, are an asset to the country and work hard for Pakistan,” requested Shamoon.
