Pak actress Saba Qamar pokes fun at Salman Khan, Hrithik, others
Not-so-long ago, an old video of Pakistani actress Mahira Khan taking jibes at Bollywood surfaced, when her Bollywood debut ‘Raees’ was just a few weeks away from its release. Now, another actress from across the border is seen taking digs at top Bollywood stars, during a chat show.
Pakistani actress Saba Qamar, who is slated to make her Bollywood debut with Irrfan Khan starrer ‘Hindi Medium’, is seen calling Salman Khan a ‘chhichora’ (cheap). She also commented on his dancing style saying he has no style at all. She also took digs at Bollywood’s ‘Greek God’ Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh etc.
A video has surfaced which is a segment from a Pakistani talk show titled ‘Good Morning Zindagi’ where Saba was the guest. The actress was shown pictures of Bollywood stars and given a situation where she has to reject them. With the picture of Hrithik, Saba is asked if she were to marry him, to which the actress replies, "Who is going to marry the father of two kids!!". Then comes Emraan Hashmi’s picture and Saba says she won’t work with him as she doesn’t want to get oral cancer.
However, when Ranbir Kapoor’s picture is shown, Saba says, “Of course darling, I’m ready for you,” but soon, the host reminds her that she is supposed to refuse him. So, Saba gives the reason that he has been linked with another actress. About Riteish, the actress said, “I'm an A-list actress in Pakistan. I work with only A-listers."
Following the terror attacks in Uri army base last September, India’s stand on engaging Pakistani talent in Indian films have greatly changed. In view of this, it is yet to be seen what troubles Saba’s maiden Bollywood flick ‘Hindi Medium’ might face to make it to the theatres. As of now, the film is slated to release on March 31.
