Pakistan’s former Federal Minister for Human Rights and humanitarian Ansar Burney might become Bajrangi, the character played by Bollywood actor Salman Khan in his sensational flick Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Following the movie’s release and popularity across the globe, the issue of an estranged Indian 23 year-old girl Geeta came to light. Geeta is an Indian girl, deaf and mute, who crossed into Pakistan accidentally. In Karachi at the moment, Ansar Burney has been trying to reunite the girl with her family across the border since three years. Reportedly, Ansar Burney also had also traveled to India with photographs and pictures of the girl three years ago. His visit had been documented by international media as well as the Indian media.

According to the tweet by the Indian minister, Geeta may well be on her way to India very soon, all because of Ansar Burney’s efforts. Also, Salman Khan’s flick Bajrangi Bhaijaan has also shed spotlight on the issue of misplaced Indians and Pakistanis, who crossover into each other’s countries by mistake.
In the movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Salman Khan returns a Pakistani misplaced girl (played by Harshaali Malhotra) back to her own country. The movie has also been very popular in Pakistan and minted more than Rs 200 crore at the box office.
