Indore, Oct 17: Geeta, the deaf-mute Indian woman living in Pakistan after accidentally crossing the border over a decade ago, has expressed desire to meet Bollywood superstar Salman Khan with family on her return to the country.
City-based sign language expert Dyanendra Purohit spoke to Geeta through online video call from a help centre for persons with special needs in Tukoganj police station.
Purohit later told reporters, "Geeta through her gestures has expressed desire to meet Salman Khan with her family. She is an admirer of the 49-year-old actor. She is also keen to return to India."
Geeta will return home soon with the Indian government "almost completing the procedure" for bringing her back. Geeta was reportedly just seven or eight years old when she was found sitting alone on the Samjhauta Express by the Pakistan Rangers 15 years ago at Lahore railway station.
A couple based in Uttar Pradesh has claimed that Geeta is their daughter and were ready for a DNA test to prove their parentage. Her story is almost similar to the screenplay of Salman Khan starrer "Bajrangi-Bhaijaan", which was a huge success in the country.
