A brand new video of Meera has been circulating on the internet since Monday which the Baaji star has recorded in a hotel room in New York. Herein, she addresses Prime Minister Imran Khan and asks him to help her return home to Pakistan.
"Mr Prime Minister, it's 2 am here in New York and I am trapped in this hotel room addressing you right now. I arrived here with Humayun Saeed and other actors for the shooting of a film, but they've all left and I'm stuck still here," claims Meera.
Saeed had returned from the US along with Adnan Siddiqui before the two went into quarantine together. The latter uploaded a video announcing their return on March 19, while letting their fans know about the precautionary measures they took upon their arrival in Pakistan.
However, Meera's video comes precisely a month after the celebrities' return and the actor is saying that she has no savings left to sustain herself in New York anymore.
She adds, "New York is turning into a graveyard with several people dying each day. Death is inevitable but I don't want to die in a foreign country."
The Nazar star then pleads to the Prime Minister to help her return to Pakistan. "Mr Prime Minister, you have always supported the artistes of our country and nations around the world are bringing their citizens back home. I am begging you, please make arrangements for me to come back. I want to die in my own country."
This is the second time an artiste has complained about being stuck abroad due to the closing of our airspace. Meera's video comes six days after the safe return of the cast and crew of Ishrat Made In China from Thailand.
The entire team of 21 people along with the director, Muhib Mirza, had also shared similar videos during their time abroad. Considering their shoot had ended on March 25, sustaining so many people in a hotel for so long had become problematic.
Nevertheless, here's hoping Meera Jee's return is also made possible and the celebrity makes her way back home.
