Yes, you heard it right! Earlier, there were rumors doing rounds that Saba Qamar will be playing the role of Qandeel Baloch in the biopic telefilm which is set to air on Urdu1. Saba has been throwing subtle hints on her Instagram account that made everyone question the posts.
But recently, the actress finally confirms in a statement, ‘I am going to be playing Qandeel Baloch in biopic. There are untold stories that need to be told. Qandeel represented the double standards that exist in our society,” continues Saba. “She had the courage to expose how two-faced people could be.”‘
Qandeel Baloch rose to fame over the internet through her often raunchy videos and pictures. Her audience always had mixed reactions to her updates. While some of them were inspired by her boldness and confidence, others were enraged. She was silenced by her own brother who was one of those people who didn’t approve of Qandeel’s work.
Saba will go on to play Qandeel and we’re guessing that the drama serial will hit some really hard home-truths. What of the threats that may follow? “Let them follow,” shrugs Saba. “Everyone has to die someday. I’d rather die after doing something worthwhile.” The cast will include Sarmad Khoosat, Ali Kazmi and Osman Khalid Butt, with Saba playing the lead.
Saba Qamar has recently made headlines regarding her Bollywood debut, Hindi Medium with none other than Irrfan Khan. While the Lahore Se Aagay star rightfully deserve all the hype about her upcoming Bollywood movie, she needs to be warranted about one of the roles she’s all set to take.
