ISLAMABAD: Actor Shamoon Abbasi Thursday urged the government to help him and his crew, as they continue to be stranded in Thailand due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We were hoping for positive news soon. The problem is that all flights have been cancelled. The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will bring people back from other countries but there has been no mention of a rescue flight to Thailand,” said Abbasi, Geo reports.

Abbasi talked about the difficulties he and his colleagues are facing in Thailand. “We have been stuck here for 10-12 days. This is taking a hit on our finances as expenses continue to rise.”

The actor added that there were 21 of them there, including five actors and 14 crew.

“We had to cancel our shooting due to the lockdown. We are all healthy and taking as many precautions as we can in the hope that we can return to Pakistan without causing any problems. We are more than willing to go through protocols such as quarantine and coronavirus tests,” said the actor.
