Mushtaq Nadiadwala, the producer of the famous film ‘Hera Pheri’, has claimed that his two minor children have been illegally captured by his wife in Pakistan. Mushtaq has filed a petition in the Bombay High Court, after which the court has sought the response of the Central Government on Mushtaq’s petition. Mushtaq claimed that his two minor children were illegally kept by his wife in Pakistan. A division bench headed by Justice Nitin Jamdar issued notice to the Ministry of External Affairs and adjourned the matter till August 29.
Nadiadwala, in his petition, has requested the court to direct the Indian government to ensure the safe return of his nine-year-old son and six-year-old daughter from Pakistan. It has been said in the petition that his wife has also been kept there forcibly by his family members and she should also be released. The petition alleges that the Government of India has failed to fulfill its obligation to bring back their two children. According to the petition, the visas granted by Pakistani authorities to his children had expired in October 2021, but they have been illegally detained there by his wife Maryam Choudhary and their families.
