Pakistan’s only female actor to be nominated in the prestigious Filmfare Best Actress category, Saba Qamar is amongst the biggest names in the Pakistani film & television fraternity.
The Cheekh actress is currently riding high on the success of her back-to-back hits Ghabrana Nahi Hai and Kamli. Saba exclusively revealed in her interview with The Current that she rejected Bollywood films Love Aaj Kal and Delhi 6 early on in her career.
The Baaghi actress said that she turned down Love Aaj Kal because Deepika was doing the female lead part but Saba was offered a parallel role, so she thought that Padukone will overshadow her.
Qamar termed this rejection to be a stupid act of hers.
As for Delhi 6, Saba’s mother didn’t allow her to work in Indian films at that point in time.
The Pani Jaisa Pyar diva was always lured by Bollywood directors and producers for leading roles but she dared to refuse the movies and work on her own terms.
The Hindi Medium star mentioned that she will only work with A-listers like Khans and Kapoors as she is an A-list actress here in Pakistan. She wouldn’t compromise on the production value and the team that she would work with.
Saba made her Bollywood debut in 2017 with Hindi Medium opposite Irrfan Khan.
On the work front, she is currently featuring in ARY Digital’s Fraud opposite Ahsan Khan and Mikaal Zulfiqar.
