The fictional tale of Bajrangi Bhaijaan is about to get real! The movie’s hero, Salman Khan has taken the initiative to help a young Indian girl Geeta, stranded in Pakistan to find her way back home on the demand of the Pakistani activist Ansar Burney.

15 years back, the eleven year old lost maiden Geeta is believed to have mistakenly crossed the border and entered Pakistan. She was later brought to Edhi Foundation in Lahore by the Rangers of Punjab. The authorities failing to trace her family or hometown, shifted the hearing and speech impaired child to Karachi’s Edhi Centre, where she developed a close bond with Bilquis Edhi.

Meanwhile, the prominent human rights worker Ansar Burney worked all these years to trace the true whereabouts of the lady.

Now 23 year old, Geeta’s story caught attention in the media after the release of BB when Burney requested Dabang Khan to be the woman’s savior in real, like in his movie.

On his plea, Salman promised to assist the Indian girl himself and roped in Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s director Kabir Khan to personally look into the matter.

Kabir Khan has taken the responsibility quite seriously and has notified different media platforms to start the search of Geeta’s family.

“We came to know of Geeta’s case just two days before and it was extremely surprising. There are far too many resemblances, little girl, who can’t speak, lost across the border. So, when I received calls from newspapers and channels, I thought we should talk about it. If we can help in any way to bring attention to it, to spread more information across newspapers and channels, then it’d be really good for the case,” he told the Indian press.

According to latest updates, a household in Amristar, India has claimed that Geeta is their daughter. However Burney tweeted that the search for her family is still on.   

Salman Khan might be being lauded for all his efforts in the case but for Pakistanis, the real hero in helping Geeta to unite with her family will remain Ansar Burney.
