'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' Salman Khan to meet Geeta soon

The deaf and mute Indian girl Geeta stranded in Pakistan for 15 years whose life story surfaced after the release of Salman Khan starrer ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ returned to her home country on Monday.

‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ told the story of Pawan Chaturvedi who takes a deaf and mute Pakistani child Munni lost in India, back to her home across the border. The film apparently inspired a real-life story when Geeta’s strikingly similar incident emerged.

The 23-year-old girl is believed to have mistakenly crossed over to the Pakistani territory 15 years ago and was reportedly found by Pakistani Rangers from Lahore railway station. She was later taken in by an NGO Edhi Foundation. She had expressed her wish to return to her real parents in India after watching the movie.

When Salman and the film’s director Kabir Khan learnt about Geeta, they offered their help to government’s effort to bring back Geeta and find her real parents. Infact, Salman had also interacted with her through a news channel. The actor had also expressed his wish to meet Geeta once she is back in the country.

Now that Geeta is in India, Kabir has said that he will soon arrange for a meeting between Salman and her. "Geeta had expressed her desire to meet Salman Khan, once she settles down here, we will arrange a meeting," the filmmaker was quoted by a news agency. He also added that he was very happy that his film ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ played a major role in helping the cause of bringing back Geeta to her home country.
