Mohib Mirza, Sanam Saeed, and Shamoon Abbasi along with other members of the cast and crew of “Ishrat Made in China” are stuck in Thailand. They had been shooting for the film and had made arrangements to do so in March. However, when they arrived in February, the coronavirus pandemic went global.
Now they’re running out of resources and are appealing to the Pakistani government to get them back to Pakistan. Shamoon Abbasi and Mohib Mirza have made videos detailing their situation as of now. They’re all maintaining social distancing and all 21 members of the cast and crew are healthy.

They have appealed to the Pakistani government to get them back to their home country in the following days as the government has begun limited flights to Canada, the UK, Malaysia, and other countries.
