Saba Qamar nominated for a Filmfare!

Saba Qamar nominated for a Filmfare!

Earlier, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has opened up about his experience of discriminatory behaviour at global airports because of his religion and now its Pakistani actress and "Hindi Medium" star Saba Qamar who has come up with the same issue.

She also narrates an incident which occurred when she has travelled to Tbilisi, the capital of Euresian Georgia, for a shoot. I feel so humiliated the way I am frisked. In a newly released video clip, the actress shares her ordeal of facing constant security checks at global airports because of carrying a Pakistani passport.

She said, "We were at the airport and while all my Indian crew went ahead, I was detained". This time not for a movie but for an interview in which she mentioned how badly she was humiliated when she went an outdoor shoot with her Indian crew. My passport had stopped me. This is just because I was a Pakistani. Saba Qamar added. The way we are investigated at the security check, and what picture does the world have about Pakistan, was humiliating. "That day I realised our (Pakistan's) position". Saba Qamar who made her Bollywood debut with Hindi Medium, had received widespread appreciation for the character.

Saba Qamar has now become the only Pakistani actress to be nominated at the Filmfare's this year, as both Sajal Aly and Mahira Khan did not make the cut for Mom and Raees.
