Viral Video: Pak actor Saba Qamar calls Salman chhichhora, insults Hrithik and Emraan
Pakistani actor Saba Qamar was supposed to have made her Bollywood debut with the film Hindi Medium, opposite Irrfan. While the fate of that film seems undecided as of now, thanks to the relationship between India and Pakistan right now.
India’s stand on including Pakistani talent in films has drastically changed over the last few months after last year’s Uri attack (September 18, 2016) and the surgical strikes that followed.
While Mahira Khan still made it to the big screen sans much trouble from her haters in the country, the Pakistani actor had to handle the film promotions long-distance, from across the border. Khan was seen in Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees last month. Right before Raees hit the screens, a video clip with Mahira Khan slamming Bollywood made headlines.
Now, here comes something from Saba Qamar that is reminiscent of the Mahira Khan video. An excerpt from a Pakistani talk show called Good Morning Zindagi, with Saba as the guest, has been dug out.
In the clip, the host is seen asking Saba to say ‘no’ to imaginary situations involving Bollywood actors. Saba is seen speaking about Hrithik Roshan. If Hrithik were to ask her to marry him, how would Saba refuse. To this, Qamar answers, “Who is going to marry the father of two kids!!”
The host them shows her a photo of Emraan Hashmi, and asks her to say ‘no’ to a film with him. “I don’t want oral cancer!” comes Saba’s reply.
Then there’s a photo of Ritesh Deshmukh too. Saba: “Look, I’m an A-list actress in Pakistan. I work with only A-listers.”
And finally, Salman Khan makes it to the screen. Saba says, “Bahut chhichhore hai aap! He doesn’t follow the choreographer at all. He invents his own styles. What is this, man!”
We’re not sure how Salman Khan would react to the video if he were to come across it… given the fact that most newcomers in Bollywood are known to humour Bhai well, we wonder if Saba would ever want him to watch the video. It’s not like her Bollywood debut is already not in a limbo._ India Today
