A new controversy emerged yesterday owing to the statements of a Pakistani actress. A throwback video of Saba Qamar resurfaced on the Internet in which she called Salman Khan a chhichora. Minutes after the video came, much was written about it and she also received flak for saying nasty things about Bollywood. Now, Saba has defended her words and said it was all in good jest.
When news agency IANS, questioned Saba about her statements she said Koffee With Karan also shows something similar. Saba said, 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?
Now we wonder if Saba’s U-turn happened because the hatred she received or she was genuinely talking about things in a fun way.
Apart from Salman, Saba also said not so amazing things about other Bollywood celebrities. When she was shown a photo of Emraan Hashmi on the chat show Good Morning Zindagi, Saba said she didn’t want to get mouth cancer by working with him. On asked about working with Riteish Deshmukh, Saba said she is a huge star in Pakistan and wouldn’t work with someone who wasn’t an A-lister. She, however, was all happy to work with Ranbir Kapoor when was shown her picture.
Interestingly, Saba will make her Bollywood debut with Irrfan Khan in a movie titled Hindi Medium.
