Saba Qamar’s Baghi television serial has been making headlines since before the first episode even air. The show which is loosely based on the life Qandeel Baloch was plagued with controversy since the start. The show was criticized by some for distorting facts about Qandeel Baloch. Some criticized the show for exploiting the plight of Qandeel’s parents. Many argued that the show’s producers overspent on promotions rather than actually helping out Qandeel’s parents. As a result, rumors began to spread in the market that the show wasn’t even based on Qandeel’s life in the first place.
With the show’s last episode airing tonight Saba Qamar addressed all rumors concerning her show
Today is the last episode of BAAGHI but before i write further i would like to clarify few things..in response to some FALSE rumours on fb/social media. First of all i would like to Thank all my viewers and people associated to the success of the esteemed project. Just to clarify 1. We had taken PROPER PERMISSION for the DRAMA SERIAL from the parents, despite the fact that there were only few incidents that were taken from Qandeel s life. 2. The permission was in Urdu so everyone could understand. 3.It was signed by them, they asked for a certain amount in return to which we happily agreed as we in any case wanted to give compensation. I am shocked to see such baseless rumours being spread by someone who has no basis for this. All the information that is being falsely spread is WRONG and BASELESS. it would be nice if people can have their facts checked before making baseless allegations. We understand that it is a sensitive subject and we have handled it in a responsible manner. #sabaqamar @ninakashif @urdu1tv @baaghi_official #shaziakhan #umeraahmed @rind_farooq @zainablakhani
