Saba Qamar is one of the talented and most versatile products of the Pakistan industry. Due to this Saba recenly got an offer to work in Bollywood and she said yes. It is a big step in her career as she will be working alongside Irrfan Khan who is an established actor in Bollywood.
About the film she said:
“It’s a situational comedy based on social issues, I play the character of a wife who is a wee bit dominating and is looked after very tenderly by her husband. The role of the latter will be essayed by Irrfan Khan,”
“After I read the script, I realised it was a very interesting film,” she claims. “But most importantly, considering the fact that I will get to work with Irrfan, who I think is a great actor to the core — I could not possibly say no to it.”
Talking about doing bold scenes, Saba said
“Any bold scenes are an absolute no for me. This has been decided long ago, I won’t be doing any bold scenes in the film, nor will I be told to do an item number. I have been doing bold scenes in Pakistani films but will not do any in Bollywood, whatsoever.”
She further explained;
“I just need to show my acting skills through the film. I won’t allow people to talk behind me and say, ‘Yeh iss ne kia kiya?’. Besides, I will not be Saba Qamar there but an individual Pakistani, representing my country on Indian soil,” Saba added.
Saba is in line of actors like Ali Zafar, Mahira Khan, Mawra Hocane and Fawad Khan who have established themselves in Bollywood.
“I have actually heard that there is a big fan following there and am looking forward to seeing the fans, The production house is also looking forward to the film. It all sounds very exciting. Indians are technically sound and Pakistanis are in learning mode right now. For now, as far as film-making is concerned, I think I will learn a lot more and come out an even better actor.”
