Rumours were brewing amidst the Pakistani fraternity for quite some time about Saba Qamar playing Qandeel Baloch in a biopic. While these rumors seemed rather baseless, they garnered momentum after Saba dropped various Instagram posts where she looked an awful lot like the now deceased social media sensation. Hushed hearsay soon became the talk of the town for the Pakistani actress, who after Hindi Medium, has reclaimed her throne as one of Lollywood’s most treasured actors.
