Stranded in New York, Pakistan’s showbiz star Meera had asked for support from Prime Minister Imran Khan to bring her back to Pakistan.
In a video shared on Instagram in the US where the coronavirus has taken thousands of lives, Meera seemed helpless.
The actress had gone to America for several shows and film shoots, a month ago.
“Its 2:00am in New York City and I am confined in my room and addressing you (PM Imran). I had come to New York with several artists including Humayun Saeed for the shooting of a film and show. My colleagues have gone back to Pakistan but I am stuck in New York,” Meera said.
“I have no savings and my survival is difficult. New York is turning into a graveyard. Every day thousands of people are dying.”
However, in her emotional message, Meera says that she does not want to die ‘in a foreign land.’
“Dear prime minister, you have always supported artists. All countries are bringing back their citizens to their homelands. I request you to please make arrangements for my repatriation to Pakistan as I wish to die in my country,” she urged.
In addition, the Baaji actress issued a new statement in another video, thanking Pakistani diplomatic staff in New York for helping her # COVID19.
“The diplomatic staff in New York is much supportive as they provided me with the best of protection in a foreign land,” Meera said.
