LOLLYWOOD: After Pakistani actor Fawad Khan was reportedly booked in an FIR on Wednesday for refusing anti-polio team to give polio drops to his children, his media team has denied all the claims and said that Fawad fully supports the anti-polio campaign and that the actor and his wife were not at home when the vaccination team arrived.
Fawad’s media team issued a press release, dismissing the reports of the actor refusing polio drops to his children. “It has been widely reported that an FIR has been registered against Fawad Khan stating that he on the 19th of February interfered with governmental efforts to vaccinate his daughter at his residence. Nothing could be further from the truth as neither of the parents were home at the time of the visit by the Anti Polio Team.”
“Fawad Khan has been outside Pakistan since the 13th of February where he performed at the PSL opening ceremony in Dubai and is presently in the United States. His travel history clearly demonstrates the manufactured nature of the FIR and he has just come to know of the FIR through the press”, the statement further adds.
The statement also said that Fawad fully supports anti-polio drive and is very well aware of the guidelines of international organisations regarding the disease.
