The Hindi Medium actress, Saba Qamar is riding high on the horse of success. She has appeared in a number of television shows and advertisements in Pakistan. The starlet will be back on our TV screens with a new project called Baaghi, where she will play the role of late social media sensation Qandeel Baloch.
“I am going to be playing Qandeel Baloch in a biopic,” Saba reveals to Images. “I have cut my hair in order to play her,” says Saba. “It’s going to be exciting.”
The biopic is a Paragon Production, produced by Nina Kashif, General Manager of Urdu1.
“We want to tell Qandeel’s story in a very sensitive way,” says Nina. “We do not want to glorify her nor do we want her to look pitiful. She was a victim of honor killing and this is what we will particularly be highlighting. The story has been written by Shazia Khan, the screenplay is by Umera Ahmed and Farooq Rind will be directing.”
Besides Saba in the lead role, the cast also includes Sarmad Khoosat, Ali Kazmi and Osman Khalid Butt.
