Two unidentified men reportedly opened fire outside a theatre in Faisalabad during Meera’s stage performance Friday evening. No casualty has been reported.
According to a report in Samaa News, the incident took place outside Sabina Theatre near Chenab Chowk in Faisalabad. CCTV footage of the incident shows two men entering the theatre’s gate and firing aerial shots. They even grabbed the security guard’s weapon.
Meera, while speaking to the media outlet, expressed her shock over the incident and said that she is “deeply saddened to know that bullets are being fired so openly in this country.”
The police have said that there are investigating the case but an FIR has not been filed as yet.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Meera is returning to stage shows after she was denied financial assistance by the Punjab Government. According to details, Meera’s show titled Selfie Queen was scheduled to begin from September 11. Other cast members include Azeem Vicky, Aslam Chatta, Shahid Hashmi, Gamma BA, Anisha Khan, Sheila Chaudhry and Manahil Noor among others.
Meera was last seen on the big screen in Saqib Malik’s Baaji, in which she played the role of a fading actress.
