Sara Khan was detained in Pakistan. Rumors are also there that she was arrested in Pakistan. But later on she clarified in an interview with a leading entertainment portal that there was delay in the return because of the flight unavailability. There was a delay of 2 days. The immigration department told her to bring NOC certificate that takes 6 more days to complete the formalities.
Source close to the actress said to the a leading daily that:
Sara was scheduled to return on March 28. However, there were no flights available to India for the next two days, which forced her to extend her stay. When she approached the immigration counter at Karachi airport on March 30, the staff recognised her. They then cited Mahira’s example and said, `Remember how Mahira was treat ed by your people? How can we let you go so easily, especially when the equation between the two countries is so critical?’, After she pleaded with them, they relented, but delayed issuing the NOC by a week. It was quite scary.
She returned back to India on 5th April. The producer of the show Jana Na Dil Se Door said that:
Sara was supposed to start shooting with us from March 30, but she was unable to fly back home. My team was constantly in touch with her. Seems, she was reminded about Mahira’s case multiple times.Fortunately, she flew back on Wednesday night.
After returning back to India she said:
There is speculation that I was arrested in Pakistan, but that’s not true. There was no restriction on my movement and I was not ill-treated. In fact, they were quite courteous. But yes, the delay did inconvenience me as I had to commence the shoot of my new soap in India. After this incident, I would like to assert that East or West, India’s the best.
