In the viral clip, Mahira Khan said, “Haww... Ye galat hogaya (this is wrong).” When the host asked her to say a dialogue from her film, she replied, “Ab toh dialogue nahi banta na agar cheezein phek rahe hain aap log (I won't say any dialogue because you threw something. Now there is no room for a dialogue).”

Mahira Khan condemned the act, stating it was ‘unacceptable’ and set a negative precedent. She highlighted the fear such incidents can cause, not just for celebrities but for anyone in a similar situation. She shared a clip of the event and wrote, “What happened at the event was uncalled for. No one should think it's ok to throw something on stage, even if it's a flower wrapped up in a paper plane. It sets the wrong precedent. It is unacceptable. There are times I get scared, not just for myself, but for others who may be trapped in a mob-like situation.”

However, Khan's message went beyond simply criticizing the disrespectful behaviour. She acknowledged the excitement of the large crowd, estimated at over 10,000, and suggested they might not have known how to express their enthusiasm appropriately. Khan emphasized the importance of such cultural events, arguing that exposure to these experiences fosters awareness and education. “We need more events such as these in more cities of Pakistan,” Khan wrote. “The more you are exposed the more you are aware and educated. Normalise it. And see what happens. People, cities, our culture, our understanding of each other (which lacks), unity (which lacks even more)... It will all flourish!”

The actress reflected on the positive aspects of her visit to Quetta, highlighting the amazing people she met and the warm hospitality she received. Khan expressed her gratitude for the love and expressed her desire to return for a future event.

Khan's response has been met with praise for her composure and her focus on the importance of cultural exchange. The incident has sparked discussions about fan behaviour and the need for improved crowd management at such events. While some fans questioned why Khan didn't leave the stage or if there could have been better security measures, Khan's message appears to be one of forgiveness and a call for growth

The PLF is a major literary event in Pakistan, attracting a diverse audience. It provides a platform for authors, poets, and artists to engage with the public and promote cultural understanding.
