Saba Qamar, is not only versatile, but straightforward. The bold actress doesn’t shy away from taking upon a controversial role and portraying it to the best of her abilities. With her Bollywood debut film Hindi Medium set to release soon, Saba Qamar seems to be on a roll.

And now, she dares to play the slain controversial figure, Qandeel Baloch, in an upcoming biopic.

Why Qandeel Baloch one would ask? Are the makers trying to glorify the woman or bring her across as a victim? In a recent Instagram post, Saba mentioned that the team wasn’t focusing on glorifying Qandeel or bringing her across as pitiful. Qandeel was the victim of honor killing and that’s what the serial is going to be about.

In a recent interview with a leading daily, Saba Qamar mentioned how there are some stories that need to be told and she wanted to play a part in telling them. Set to play Qandeel Baloch in a drama serial, Saba made her point, saying, “Qandeel represented the double standards that exist in our society.” She also mentioned, “She had the courage to expose two-faced people.This is exactly what the drama aims to address.”

Saba will play Qandeel’s character to shed light on the issues she brought forward. Qandeel had the strength to expose some really sadistic faces in our society, therefore her story deserves to be told through this biopic.
