‘Wrong No’ Actor Nadeem Jafri shot in Karachi

Posted on June 30, 2016

KARACHI: Actor, television host and musician Nadeem Jafri was injured after suspected robbers opened fire at him in Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal area on Thursday.

The Wrong No actor received multiple bullet wounds in an alleged robbery incident outside his house at sehri time, TV actor and host Fakhr-e-Alam said on Twitter.

“My dear friend artist Nadeem Jafri was shot at multiple times at sehri time today in a robbery. He survived miraculously. Thank you Allah.”

Last week, Amjad Sabri’s unexpected death jolted the Pakistani artist community severely. In a show of solidarity, multiple stakeholders of the entertainment industry uploaded a video message on Facebook, demanding the same level of security that is generally reserved for government officials.

Led by Fakhr-e-Alam, the video featured some of the industry’s most recognisable faces — including Faisal Qureshi, Faakhir and Maria Wasti — requesting the government to provide artists with the same security protocol that politicians receive as artists are as popular as them. While the video went viral, the demand ended up dividing not only the general public but also the artist community.

In the over two-minute-long video, the Sindh Board of Film Censors chairman said, “We are deeply shocked by Amjad Sabri’s death and have realised that there is no one to look after our safety and security. We want the same security that the government officials are being given. And if that does not happen, then government officials should also give up their protocols so that we at least feel that all of us are equally vulnerable.”
