Thankfully we didn’t have symptoms but we started quarantining. As for those who were still there, the shoot wrapped up on March, 25 but air spaces had closed by then.”

Mohib Mirza posted a video message on his Instagram in which he said, “Ever since we wrapped the film we have been waiting for when we’ll be allowed to go back. We are waiting for some kind of special flight and I’d like to make an appeal to the civil aviation authority, the government of Pakistan and the Ministry of foreign affairs, to help us get back home. I’d further like to request the Film Producers Association to forward our message to the government.”

“However, what’s limited is the resources, given the production team did not expect to stay here for many days. There are 21 people here, including the crew and regardless of what the situation in Pakistan be, everyone needs to get back home.”

Shamoon Abbasi also shared his message, “We thought we’d return by April 4, but if we knew this would happen we would’ve started making noise sooner,”

“They are strong women, Sara herself has traveled a lot and Sanam is very concerned. They are responsible enough to know they are surrounded by responsible people so they aren’t panicking.”

“Everybody’s just been counseling each other these days, we play some music and crack a few jokes but everyone is scared deep inside. Even television is useless here because all the channels are in languages we don’t understand.”
