Pakistani actress Saba Qamar, who will make her Bollywood debut with Irrfan Khan in Hindi Medium, took a dig at Indian cine stars like Salman Khan and Hrithik Roshan on a talk show. Defending it, she says it was all in good fun.
When IANS contacted Saba, she said over phone: “It was a fun show… There was nothing in it… ‘Koffee With Karan’ mein kya kuchh nahi hota (What all does not happen on ‘Koffee With Karan’)… I love everyone, and he’s (Salman) a big superstar and so humble. Why would I say anything bad about him?”
An excerpt from the Pakistani talk show titled Good Morning Zindagi, where Saba was the guest and was seen talking about Bollywood stars, is doing the rounds on social media platforms.
In the two minute-plus long video, the host asks Saba to say ‘no’ to hypothetical situations involving Hrithik, Emraan Hashmi, Ranbir Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh and Salman — and state the reason behind it.
When asked about Hrithik Roshan, Saba said, “Do bachchon ka baap nahi chahiye mujhe.”
For Riteish Deshmukh, Saba replied, “I do good work in Pakistan. I am an A-lister actor. So, even in Bollywood I want to work with an A-lister.”
While talking about Emraan Hashmi, she said, “I don’t want to have oral cancer.”
