“We heard the conference of Asad Umar today and came to know that PIA would bring back stranded Pakistanis from Britain and Canada. Since we’re stuck here for the past 15 days.

Adding further, Shamoon stated that alongside them, a total of 100 Pakistanis or more had been stranded in Thailand ever since the shut down was imposed. Shamoon also said that his team was in a healthy condition and maintaining social distancing alongside good hygiene and were ready to quarantine themselves once they returned to Pakistan.
The actor urged the authorities in Pakistan to look into the matter and try and bring them back to the country through PIA if it could accommodate the route to Thailand while flying anywhere else.
