Yesterday, Phantom director Kabir Khan was at the airport to catch a flight to Lahore after his day-long visit in Karachi when angry protesters surrounded him at Jinnah International Airport and angrily confronted him. Angry citizens chanted ‘shame shame ‘ and urged the director to stop making anti-Pakistan films and focus more on the ‘subversive activities of RAW in Pakistan’.
Kabir was surrounded by the angry protesters immediately after he got out of his vehicle. The director refrained from replying to the angry people and quietly wheeled his bags away till the airport security staff calmed the situation down.
