WEB DESK: The prominent face of Pakistan’s drama industry, Saba Qamar who successfully made Bollywood debut with Hindu Medium, getting all the praises and appreciation from both sides of the border. Now, is all ready to play Qandeel Baloch in Baaghi.
Moreover, the Digest Writer star would now appear as social media sensation, late Qandeel Baloch who was murdered last year. The television serial ‘Baaghi’ is scheduled to go on air this August.
While talking to Mid-day she spoke about Baloch and said,“The perception was that Qandeel Baloch made inappropriate videos, but no one knows why she did it… She did it to earn money and support her family. She wasn’t educated, but dreamt of becoming famous. She didn’t have any other option to fulfill her dream apart from taking to social media. She tried to do regular jobs, but wherever she went, she was exploited.”
The Hindi Medium star said it was people who encourage her indecent posts by following her by giving her a platform,“If anyone, it’s the people who need to be blamed for making Qandeel a social media sensation. If no one had followed her, she would not have made what she did. It’s they who are responsible for her death.”
Speaking more about Baaghi, the 33 year old actress claimed that in the serial, we have highlighted difficulties of her life and not any entertainment, “When we released the poster, the abuses poured in. If they are expecting anentertaining show, they will be disappointed. We are going to showcase the difficulties she faced, not glorify her. Either this show manages to change the way our community thinks, or I die doing it.”
Lastly, Qamar added that she received ‘very strong’ reaction when we released the first look of biopic Baaghi.
