The twin towers came down in New York.

And suddenly, the world's attention

turned to Afghanistan.

A country ravaged by war, for 23 years.

With Osama bin Laden and

the Taliban by their sides..

..the U.S. started bombing Afghanistan.

The Taliban were a group of

religious extremists..

..who had occupied Afghanistan with

Military support from Pakistan.

lt reported that Pakistani soldiers

had also entered Afghanistan..

..to fight alongside the Taliban.

After 9/11, Pakistan deserted the Taliban..

..and the northern alliance Mujahiddeen,

took over Kabul.

A country that had been closed

to the world for long six years..

..suddenly opened up!

Thousands of Journalists went in by

any means possible.

To capture this exciting time,

in the history of Afghanistan.

Among them were Suhel and Jai.

So dude.. Are you enjoying being

a war reporter?

Balls, l'm enjoying this!

lf only we'd listened to our parents..

..should've become a doctor..

or an engineer..

But no.. we had to go and

become journalists!

Why did you have to tell the boss..

..that we would get an interview

with the Taliban.. or die trying..

Now you'll die.. definitely!

Hey, how was l to know that

our lives will really be at risk!

These guys carry guns like

we carry mobile phones..

One of them even had a rocket launcher,

did you see?

Not even 3 days since we got into

this Afghanistan..

..and here we are stuck in this mess.

Who are you guys?

We want to go to Kabul!

Where are you from?

Ah.. lndia. Hindustan. - Oh,


Amitabh Bachchan.. (lndian Superstar)

Amitabh Bachchan! Yes!

Aamir Khan..Shahrukh Khan..(lndian Actors)

Aamir Khan..Shahrukh Khan.. correct.

Dharmendra..Jeetendra.. (lndian Actors)

Yes..Dharmendra.. Jeetendra..

Does this guy only like men?

Yeah.. That's what l've heard about them.

Kabul? - Kabul?

Hello.. hello.. we need to go to Kabul..

Hello.. bring the vehicle.. understand?

Let's go to Kabul.

Doesn't this place have taxis?

Hotel Kabul.

Looks like a 5 star..

You're gonna get me killed one of these days.

Why did you have to promise the boss..

Stop repeating yourself!

Why not?

You be the hero if you must..

Why are you after my life?

And this bloody Khyber.. he's the one

who got us stuck in this mess..

What did l do?

The first day you met us you said

you would take us to the Taliban..

You guys went on and on about

wanting to meet the Taliban..

Now meet them.

At it, again?

Come on.. Want to exercise?

Come.. Let's go.. l've contacted

some Mujahideen

who have held some Pakistani Taliban.

They've hidden these guys

in the mountains. C'mon..

Will they let us interview them?

Of course! That's why they've

been kept alive..

..for interviews.. in exchange of money.

lf caught alive, a Talib is priceless these days.

How much will they charge?

l was told 200 dollars.

That's a bit too much, man!

But we do need the interview.

Ok, what else will they do for 200 dollars?

l guess they might dance foryou

on the mountain tops!

Let's go..!

Do you think these guys will come?

They should be here anytime.

But they have to be cautious.

This stuff is risky!

No one should know they've got

some Taliban prisoners.

Are these the guys?

Doctor, l can't see a thing!

Doctor, l can't see a thing!

Khyber, ask them how much further?

What? -Ask them how far is this place?

No.. They'll get angry.

Screw them. Why are you so scared?

They won't shoot you for asking.

Mujahid brother.. how far is it?

What happened?

Looks like the Taliban prisoners have run away..

Our Taliban?

You mean the ones we paid for?
