Saba Qamar, whose full name is Saba Qamar Zaman is the queen of expressions and versatility. A Pakistani actress who is loved not just in Pakistan but all around the globe, She has a unique style and personality. There is a misconception that She changed her name when she entered the entertainment industry, that is not the case. She was given this name by a neighbor when she was born. She does not believe in changing her name for fame.
She was born in Hyderabad, Sindh. She moved with her family to Gujranwala, Punjab after her father passed away. A few years later they moved to Lahore, where she got her education and that is from where she started working in the drama industry. She has done modeling, fashion photoshoots, and even hosting. Saba decided to stick to acting alone after modeling for a few years. She felt like she was born to perform, she thought that being focused and choosing one field would have been a wiser choice.
She landed in the field of acting purely by chance. She went with her mother’s friend to watch the shooting of a Pakistan Day special drama. As it turned out, the heroine failed to make it to the shooting. That is when the director asked her to perform the leading role. Saba read the lines given to her and was surprised that performing came effortlessly to her. Everyone in the room clapped when she delivered her first few dialogues and gradually she realized that this is what she was meant to do.
She belongs to a Syed family in which it was strictly forbidden for girls to work in showbiz. When she decided to take this step, she faced a lot of opposition from her family. She started working in 2004 and she made sure that she proved to everyone that showbiz was a decent profession. Saba Qamar strictly believes that this impression about showbiz is entirely wrong. She thinks that if someone wants to do something objectionable, they can and will do so in any field at all.
The talent of acting is something she has been blessed with by God. She wasn’t aware of this talent of hers until she started performing. According to her, she is still camera shy but when she is doing the shooting for her dramas, she instantly gets into action and does not feel shy anymore.
Above everything else, She is a determined woman who feels that she is not in competition with anyone. She believes in giving everything she does her best without caring about the ‘race’ which goes on in the industry. She has learned a lot over the years and her yoga instructor has played a major role in making her see life and her work in a completely different light.
In a recent interview, Saba Qamar talked about her experience of working in India. She worked alongside Irrfan Khan, who was considered one of the biggest actors of Bollywood. She shared that she wanted to learn from him and expected that maybe he will be pointing out her mistakes every now and then but he did not do that. He however taught her a new way of acting. She shared that she learned so much from observing the way he acted and the tips he gave her.
Saba Qamar always wanted to work with Irrfan Khan so this was like a dream come true for her. The fact that he was always so down-to-earth made her like him even more after the experience of working with him.

Saba was born on April 5, 1984. She is 36 years old. Even when She had just started her career, she played leading roles with actors who were much older than her. At that time many people advised her against it since they were of the opinion that her fans would start thinking that she was much older than her age. Saba Qamar did not pay heed to such advice since she is pretty sure that age is just a number when it comes to performing arts. She thinks that actors don’t have a shelf-life and she has always loved to experiment.

He eventually got married to some girl in his family to please society and that was an end to a love story that existed only in her mind. She has come to the conclusion that dogs are more faithful than men!
