Senior TV artist Beena Chaudhry has recently released a video message in which she expressed fear for her life after receiving death threats.
The ‘Romeo Weds Heer’ star said in a video message on her Instagram that she was continuously receiving death threats from some people for several days. She claimed that she had been threatened to be murdered if she did not stay silent.
However, she did not mention any names and motives for which she was receiving the death threats in her video message.
The actress, who appeared in numerous dramas including Geo Entertainment’s Kahin Deep Jaley, told her fans that she could have faced an untoward incident at any time, therefore, she recorded a video for social media to expose those who would be responsible for her death.
In 2020, filmmaker Sardmad Khoosat had revealed that he received threatening phone calls and messages ahead of the release of his film “Zindagi Tamasha” which stirred controversy.
Khoosat had clarified in a lengthy note on X – formerly Twitter - that his film doesn't contain objectionable content and cleared by the censor authorities.
The "Manto" actor, however, refrained from naming the people who were using coercion for him to stop the release of Zindagi Tamasha.
However, despite getting a release date, the Punjab government had stopped the release of the flick and was postponed indefinitely to hit theatres.
The film was eventually released on 4 August 2023 on YouTube and won awards in Busan and at the 2021 Asian World Film Festival in Los Angeles.
