Bollywood director Kabir Khan has arrived in Karachi! It’s not what you think however, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan director isn’t here for a Lollywood project or a collaboration of any sort.

Turns out, he’s actually in Karachi to attend a marketing conference.

The Marcon ’16 conference gathers “leaders and marketers in search of new ideas and fresh sources of creativity,” according to it’s pamphlet.

The city is in a tizzy following his arrival, as Pakistan’s who’s who including Javed Shiekh and Zeba Bakhtiar can’t help but take selfies with Kabir!

Is Bajrangi Bhaijaan inspired by Pakistani activist Ansar Burney?

This is Kabir’s second visit to Pakistan. He was previously spotted in Lahore a couple of months ago. Last year, Kabir had become the center of attention after delivering a blockbuster hit in the form of Bajrangi Bhaijaan and later making Phantom, which caused a lot of controversy after it was banned in Pakistan.

    We really have to change our priorities, isn’t the same guy who made phantom to defame the name of Pakistan.Recommend

    He’s a guest in our country and deserves our full respect. People like you need to shut up. Thank you.Recommend

    He is our guest, so learn how to respect.
    I am on my way back to home. Ager attending Marcon 2016. Let me tell you people were dying to have a selfie with him and showed a lot of love after hearing his thoughts.
    It’s all because of dirty minded people like you who always leverage on hate and negativity, both countries never came closer and embraced each other.
    It’s our inherited problem to concentrate and converge towards negativity, I mean why you mentioned Phantom but not Bajrangi Bhaijan?
    Please grow up and get a life to let the peace prevail and enthrall through the body, minds and should of both nations.Recommend

    Same goes for you man. A lil respect goes a long way. Faisal is entitled to his opinion, you have no right to give him a shut up call. And yes i do agree that Pakistani’s as hosts should respect the guests.Recommend

    Kabir Khan shows good timing coming to Pakistan after Bajrangi Bhaijaan. If he had come after Phantom, he may have got a different reception.Recommend

    He’s our guest so we should definitely respect him and we thank him for giving us the honor of hosting Mr Khan.

    However, please don’t tell me that this will help bridge the gap etc. It’s a simple visit in professional capacity. Recommend

    A guest should be respected if he deserves it. Would you respect someone who foul mouths you or your home??!! May be you would but majority of people have some level of self respect. People like you are a disgrace. Thank you very very much.Recommend

    1st declare him enemy who has made anti pakistan movies.

    He is guest of only that who invited him.

    If he apoligizes for making anti pakistani movies then we can accept him as guest.

    Anti Pakistanis should not be invited unless they regret.

    Understand the difference between Defamers and guests.

    Don’t be like traitors.Recommend
