Here’s some news. Irrespective of the mounting tensions between India and Pakistan, Pakistani actress Saba Qamar’s debut Hindi film will release on March 31 next year.
Directed by Saket Chaudhary Hindi Medium also stars Irrfan opposite Saba. The film is a light hearted romantic film about a young couple in Chandni Chowk in Delhi, who aspire to move into society’s upper crust.
With rightists raising their voices against Pakistani artistes working in India, it would be interesting to see how they react to Saba’s film. Saba who is one of the most powerful actresses in Pakistan, has quite a fan base back in India thanks to the daily soaps that used to be aired on a TV channel.
Interestingly, another Pakistani actress Mahira Khan is ready with her Bollywood debut Raees opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Raees hits the theatres in January next year.
