Popular Pakistani actress Saba Qamar, who starred in hit Hindi film 'Hindi Medium' opposite Irrfan last year, broke down during an interview while sharing the humiliating ordeal she had on account of her nationality at an international airport once.
The actress, with tears flowing down her cheeks, said that when on home turf, one heard 'Pakistan Zindabad' all the time but what she saw when travelling abroad was worlds apart. She said, "That day I realised our (Pakistan's) position. Where do we stand?"
Ever since the video went viral, some netizens have praised Saba, while others have slammed her for speaking against her homeland.
Saba Qamar has to her credit Pakistani TV shows like Uraan, Baaghi and Jinnah Ke Naam. She has acted in films like Manto, Lahore Se Aagey and Aina.
Saba received rave reviews for her performance in 'Hindi Medium'.
It's not just #SabaQamar who feels humiliated. All #Pakistanis feel humiliated when we are considered a terrorist state, when our children are killed like flies & we can't get justice for them, when terrorist like #HafizSaeed roam around freely & we watch them helplessly. pic.twitter.com/pHalKqo7cq— Sabah Alam (@AlamSabah) January 16, 2018
