Actor Shamoon Abbasi, who is currently stranded in Thailand along with his crew members due to suspension of flights triggered by the coronavirus pandemic, has called upon the government to help him and his other colleagues.
He took to social media and said he is hoping for a positive news. “The problem is that all flights have been cancelled. The Pakistan International Airlines will bring people back from other countries but there has been no mention of a rescue flight to Thailand,” he wrote.
Abbasi said in his Twitter message on Thursday that many Pakistanis are stranded in Thailand.
