In a shocking development, renowned Film and television actor Babar Ali has fled Pakistan to the United States of America amid death threats. The actor plans on staying overseas until the issue gets resolved by the law enforcing agencies for the sake of his and his family’s safety.
The FIR lodged by the actor states that a few unidentified individuals threatened the Landa Bazaar star for life via phone calls and social media apps.
As for the reasons behind the threats, according to Babar, he started receiving the calls and messages when one of his TV dramas was aired. He further stated that the same extremist elements have been active against him in the past as well.
Babar’s Recent Work
Since, the issue initiated with one of Babar’s recent TV works, it is pertinent to mention here that Babar Ali was recently seen in Dramas like Laal Ishq, a sequel to his 2002 blockbuster drama Landa Bazaar, and TV One’s Karamat e Ishq. Babar was also hosting a morning show on Apna Channel.
It is indeed, sad that artists; and for that matter, any individual, has to opt for the extreme option of leaving their homeland because of security concerns.
The Star of the 90s
Babar Ali remained a successful actor in 90s when he debuted in a hit PTV drama based on Muhammad Bin Qasim. Known for his grown hair (something that was quite a fashion back in the days) and a long thin nose, the actor went on to play lead roles in numerous blockbuster films of that era.
These included hits like Jeeva, Munda Bigra Jaye, Khoye Ho Tum Kahan, and Jo Dar Gaya Wo Mar Gaya.
We wish all the best to Babar Ali and hope that he safely and successfully battles this tough time out in his life.
