Pakistani actress Meera stopped at Karachi airport
Pakistani actress Meera was stopped at Karachi airport on Tuesday for possessing two passports, a media report said.
Meera had arrived at Karachi airport from America via Dubai, Geo TV reported, adding that the the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had seized both passports and sent them to its headquarters in Islamabad.
“Meera is under investigation,” the channel said, without specifying whether she had been detained.
Meera had come into prominence when she appeared in the Bollywood film “Nazar” in 2005. Meera was paired opposite Ashmit Patel in the film that was directed by Soni Razdan and failed at the box office.
Since then, she has been in and out of the news both in Pakistan and India.
In September last year, filmmaker Mukesh Bhatt, who with his brother Mukesh Bhatt had launched Meera in Bollywood, was going all out to help her after she apparently received death threats from a man in Lahore claiming to be her husband. It later appeared to him a case of Meera’s past catching up with her.
“Yes, Meera did call from Lahore. Some guy claiming to be her husband tried to break into her home and kill her! At that time she seemed quite genuine in her call for help. Meanwhile Salman Taseer, the governor of Punjab, was very prompt in taking action, but Meera was still inconsolable,” Bhatt had told IANS.
However, the situation turned out to be quite different. Reports started making the rounds that the man in question was indeed Meera’s husband and had papers and photographs to back his statement. Apparently, he tried to reach Meera, but her guards prevented him from entering her house.
In 2008, Meera had landed up at Bhatt’s house at around 2 a.m. after being apparently troubled by a man. She was living in Mumbai at that time and didn’t have anyone else to help her.
Bhatt had then asked Sevy Ali, who had produced “Nazar”, to help Meera out but she was miffed with him because he refused to shelter her.
