An array of teasers has been popping up online of the Qandeel Baloch biopic drama Baaghi, starring Saba Qamar. The first trailer got a lot of positive buzz, with many commending Saba’s eerie transformation into the now deceased social media star. While most snippets of the highly anticipated drama have been giving Pakistanis an earnest glimpse into Qandeel’s past, the latest teaser is starkly different to what we’ve seen so far. It introduces the second protagonist of the serial – Osman Khalid Butt.
Osman appears to be in love with Saba’s character despite everything controversial surrounding her life
Saba comes and sits beside him at the foot of the darbaar
Osman follows suit and both sit in a moment of peace.
A conversation between Osman and Saba plays over this scene as both sit hushed, with a sense of perseverance lingering between them
He says that he has no care for her controversial past; her shaadi, her children nor her Facebook videos. His only concern is her.
Osman’s role, while unclear, at this point, does make one thing very clear: he loves Saba’s character
She’s afraid of the class divide that might be an obstacle to their budding relationship but he asks her to trust him and she admits she’s afraid.
Hopefully, we’ll get an insight into a very different side of Qandeel
One that is veiled beneath her contentious public life that was the only life many knew she had. What brews between the two, and how it all goes downhill is something to look out for.
With the vexed life Qandeel led, this teaser aims to project the social media starlet in deep introspection and reflecting her life so far
Here’s the trailer so you can get as excited for the show, as we are:
What did you think of the teaser? Are you looking forward to Osman Khalid Butt’s role in the drama?
