Pakistani actress Saba Qamar mocks Bollywood stars, calls Salman Khan ‘Chichora’ in this viral video
In a chat show (old video), Pakistani actress Saba Qamar is seen mocking Bollywood stars, calls Salman Khan ‘Chichora’.
I am sure Pakistani actress Saba Qamar would have been quite excited about making her Bollywood debut, opposite Irrfan Khan in the movie ‘Hindi Medium’. After all, working in Bollywood is a big deal for Pakistani artists.
However, I’m sure she will be quite embarrassed (and probably insecure) to know that one of her older videos has gone viral…and for the wrong reasons.
In the video, she is seen mocking big Bollywood stars Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Emraan Hashmi and Riteish Deshmukh, among others.
During a Pakistani talk show (looks like their version of Koffee with Karan, where you realise the consequences only later), Saba Qamar was asked how she would say ‘no’ to Bollywood actors, assuming she was offered a film with those actors.
Guess what she said when Salman Khan’s picture flashed on the screen? Saba Qamar called the Bollywood superstar a ‘chichora’ (Indecent / Vulgar).
For Hrithik Roshan, Saba said, “Do bachchon ka baap nahi chahiye mujhe.” (Don’t want a father of two kids).
For Emraan Hashmi, she said, “I don’t want to have oral cancer.”
She literally put down Riteish Deshmukh by replying, “I do good work in Pakistan. I am an A-lister actor. So, even in Bollywood I want to work with an A-lister.” (I guess she’s not aware that Marathi films now gross more than the top Pakistani films)
I guess she will have to be content being an A-lister in Pakistan now, because her journey in Bollywood won’t go too far now (especially when she has taken panga with Bhai).
Earlier, a video of Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who made her Bollywood debut opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Raees’, was seen taking a dig at India and Bollywood (this was on a chat show, hosted by Pakistani comedian Omar Sharif, long before she made her debut).
The clip shows Mahira Khan saying, “Aapko India se inspire nahi hona chahiye. Bilkul nahi. Hum Bollywood nahi hain (You should not get inspired from India. Not at all. We are not Bollywood).”
