We bet you all remember Qandeel Baloch. The Pakistani social media star grabbed headlines last year when she was brutally murdered in cold blood by her brother, which was later found to be the case of honour killing. She earlier made news when she threatened PM Narendra Modi in one of her videos.
Later, the news of her death sent shock waves across Pakistan, and now a biopic is being made on her. Guess who will play Qandeel in the upcoming biopic? Its Pakistani actress Saba Qamar. Didn’t recognise her? Well, she is all set to make her Bollywood debut opposite Irrfan Khan in the upcoming film ‘Hindi Medium’.
There were speculations after she posted pictures of her in a different avatar on Instagram that resembled the late internet sensation. She is known in the industry for her bold and daring attitude.
Saba recently confirmed that she will playing Qandeel Baloch in the biopic and said that she had a haircut according to that. The story will be called ‘Baaghi’ and is being produced by Nina Kashif, the General Manager of Urdu1. Nina said –
‘We want to tell Qandeel’s story in a very sensitive way. 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.’
The cast of the film includes Osman Khalid Butt, Ali Kazmi and Sarmad Khoosat.
