Pakistani actress Saba Qamar is known for her phenomenal performances. While she already made her film debut with a cameo in Manto, she hasn’t done a Pakistani film since.
Word around town is that now Saba Qamar has finally signed a Pakistani film. Meanwhile, her fans are still not over the actress’ phenomenal performance in Cheekh when the news dropped.
According to Entertainment.pk, a source revealed that the actress has signed a film set to release next year. The film’s production hasn’t started yet but is expected to soon.
“Saba Qamar has signed a major project to be directed by one of the most talented and visionary directors of Pakistan.”
Saba Qamar in Films
Saba Qamar’s first central film performance was in comedy film Lahore Se Aagey. Her role in Hindi Medium was painted in humor as well.
Thing is we’ve never seen the versatile actress take on a mind-blowing film role, unlike her drama serials from I Love You Bunty to Baaghi. Her Bollywood film Hindi Medium though had a strong script, and saw success in the sub-continent and overseas.
Since 2017’s Hindi Medium, the actress has stayed away from the silver screen. With the Bollywood ban and more movie-goers consuming homegrown films, Pakistani filmmakers are geared up to fulfill market demands.
This year saw three big-budget film releases on Eid. All three films did well at the box office. 2019 also saw the release of Pakistan’s first crime thriller film Laal Kabotaar. Many of our films even made it to the Cannes Film Festival this year.
Based on all that, can we expect sunny days ahead?
