Mr Burney also had also traveled to India in October 2012 with photographs and pictures of the girl three years ago. Bilquis Edhi has suggested Geeta to begin a new life here and get marreid to a Hindu boy. Geeta, through her gestures, refused and said she would get marry only after she returns home. Ms Edhi also named the girl who accidentally strayed across the border into Pakistan ‘Geeta’.

In a video message, Burney refers to the Bollywood star, saying “Salman khan sahib, you’ve translated real life story to a film, earned billions and didn’t credit Pakistan or us. But let’s forget. We don’t want promotion or publicity as it’s not our ambition. Now you should put up your hand and announce assistance to this girl and Ansar Burney Trust. ” He detailed that the girl was found in Pakistan around 15 years ago, when she was six and identified herself as ‘Guddi’ – a same character played by pretty Harshali Malhotra in Bajrangi Bhaijan . “Ansar Burney Trust is endeavouring to find her family for last three years.”

Mr. Burney said the entire story revolves around Pakistan, Ansar Burney and a Paksitani journalist Chand Nawab. “We can move to Indian Supreme Court for compensation, but we won’t resort to that move.” I am heading to India on September 2, he said, to meet H.H. Dalailama and I would visit areas to find family of Geeta. The director of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kabir Khan, after reports in the media, has sent an email to Mr. Burney assuring him support in the mission. Here’s the screenshot of the email received to the human rights activist. “I hope you (Salman) to carry along us in this mission during India visit. “Alike Geeta, there is a child named Salman, who was one-and-a-half year old when his parents were sent back to Pakistan. ”
