The now famous Saba Qamar started her career in the TV series Main Aurat Hoon. For her performance in the serial, she even won an award. Thereafter she became a big name for the public through other successful roles like Saman in Maat, Haleema in Yahan Pyar Nahi Hai, Surya in Dastaan and quite a few others.
This star was also a part of Hamza Ali Abassi’s film trailer Kambakhat. Another appearance she got involved in was for Azeem Sajjad’s 8969. When questioned about these roles, Saba responded by saying, “First things first, I don’t think Hamza is interested in releasing Kambakht anymore as it was shot a long time back and if released, it might look awkward as a lot of things have changed.”
To the question she also stated “As for Azeem Sajjad’s project, it was not a film but a tele-film and I was conned into doing it because he was a family friend and claimed that his heroine had disappeared.”
This actress who has the ability to create an impression appeared in an ‘item number’ that was filmed on a low-grade set with bad choreography in one of the music videos from the the film. And the comments from Saba were.
“He [Azeem Sajjad] told me that the song will be shot in a ‘royal’ manner with a huge set, limousines, foreign dancers and what not but when I went on the set, it resembled a second-grade stage…Despite my reservations, I went ahead with the badly-choreographed number which he promised to scrap once the producer had left. It was probably the biggest mistake of my career and the worst experience so far. But what was more hurtful were the statements by both of his wives who blasted me to save their egotistical husband from embarrassment.”
Now the question that continues to hang is, how will the audience respond and feel when the movie is released in early December 2016.
Saba Qamar's upcoming release 8969 is the biggest mistake of her career.
