I hope my hard work has brightened the name of Pakistan: Saba Qamar


LAHORE: Saba Qamar is flying high. 2017 saw her become one of Pakistan’s most sought-after actress as well as her Bollywood debut with the super hit film Hindi Medium which won hearts and accolades in both the neighbouring countries.

Hindi Medium recently won the Filmfare Award for the Best Film while the film’s lead actor Irrfan Khan bagged the award for the Best Actor (Male) in a Leading Role. Qamar had received the nomination for the Best Actor (Female) in a Leading Role. However, the award was ultimately awarded to Vidya Balan for her performance in Tumhari Sullu. 

Talking to APP, Saba said,”I hope my hard work has brightened the name of Pakistan and our film industry globally.”

“With the grace of God, I received a positive response for my first venture in our neighbouring country,” she added.

“After the massive success of Hindi Medium, the producers are all set for a schedule. I hope Irrfan and I get to work in the second installment of the blockbuster.”

However, according to numerous Indian publications, it is highly unlikely that the starlet will be coming back for the sequel.

Considering the success of the film which revolved around the feat of a couple from Chandni Chowk, who wanted their daughter to study in an English medium school, the filmmakers of the film planned a sequel.

Confirming the development, producer Bhushan Kumar said, “The script is ready and we are starting pre-production of the film. Hindi Medium was my first award as a producer. People loved the film and Irrfan is ready as well. We will be going on the floors once the preparatory work is complete.”
