Mumbai: Salman Khan today supported the government’s effort to bring back Geeta, stranded in Pakistan for 15 years, and unite her with her rightful parents, just as he did in his runaway hit “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”.
Geeta, 23, is believed to have mistakenly crossed into Pakistani territory as a child. She was seven-eight years old when she was found by the Pakistan Rangers 15 years ago from Lahore railway station, according to reports from Pakistan.
She has got a fresh lease of hope after the success of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, where Salman plays an Indian guy who helps a little girl reach her home in Pakistan.
When asked whether he had tried to help Geeta, Salman said he would have got involved but the government is already looking into the matter.
“… Government is looking into it. And they are competent and should take this forward. If she agrees and they find her rightful parents, this should definitely be done,” he said.
