Renowned actress, Meera has uploaded a video in which she is asking Prime Minister Imran Khan to help her get back to Pakistan as she is stuck in America.
Meera was busy shooting her upcoming film Long Distance, she is not even playing the lead but she is also producing the film.
Meera seemed helpless as she said that a Chinese cameraman of her team has died because of the disease and all her resources are exhausted so it has become very difficult for her to stay in America.
“It is 2:00am in New York City and I am confined in my room and addressing you (PM Imran). I had come to New York with several artists including Humayun Saeed for the shooting of a film and show. My colleagues have gone back to Pakistan but I am stuck in New York,” Meera said.
“I have no savings and my survival is difficult. New York is turning into a graveyard. Every day thousands of people are dying.
“Dear prime minister, you have always supported artists. All countries are bringing back their citizens to their homelands. I request you to please make arrangements for my repatriation to Pakistan as I wish to die in my country,” she urged.
She also revealed that her team from Pakistan has returned to the country but only she and filmstar Saud are stuck in U.S.
“Saud is in Dallas and I am stuck in a terrible situation. A Chinese cameraman of my crew died after contracting COVID-19. I am scared. I have tried my best to reach out to Pakistani diplomats but none of them have helped me,” she expressed.
She further said that “Coronavirus is a virus that has gone to become a pandemic across the world. The cause of this is behind a lack of hygiene practices in vet markets across China. A solution to this would be halal eating and sanitation that would prevent this kind of behavior.”
