Saba Qamar Just Confirmed Her Next Bollywood Film And Is Incredibly Excited

By Iman Zia | 29 Jan, 2018

Hindi Medium,’Ā starring Pakistani actress Saba Qamar and Indian actor Irrfan Khan was both a critical and commercial success. While Irrfan hardly shies from the less mainstream choice in Indian cinema,Ā Saba took a slight risk venturing into a film that had less star power than say, Mahira’sĀ ‘Raees.’Ā Nonetheless, the actress seized the opportunity by its horns. A few months later, and Saba has earned her first Filmfare nomination for ‘Best Actress,’ (the first of six stellar nominations for the film).

 

Hindi Medium’Ā is Saba’s Bollywood debut, and is about a couple who wish to see their daughter study in one of Delhi’s top schools

The film was lauded by critics, as it addressed strawn out elitism scattered in India.Ā Saket Chaudhary has just a bundle of films as director (‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects,’ andĀ ‘Pyaar Ke Side Effects’), and also served as the writer forĀ the Kareena-Shah Rukh starrerĀ ‘Asoka.’
