Actor Saba Qamar, who was recently seen with Irrfan Khan in Bollywood film Hindi Medium, has opened her heart about the humiliation she faces at international airports for being a Pakistani.
In a viral video, she talks about the tough nature of frisking at international airports. With tears in eyes, Saba says that it gets really difficult to go through such a humiliating process of checking when the security staff looks at her with suspicion. She says that such things have a connection with her being a Pakistani actor.
She narrates an incident in the 49-second video about the time when she went to Tbilisi, the capital of Euresian Georgia. She says, “When we went to Tbilisi to shoot for a film, all the Indian crew was allowed to go, but I was stopped. It was because of my passport. I was from pakistan. They did full investigation. They let me go only after an interview.”
She added, “That day I realised our position. Where do we stand?”
Saba Qamar was already a big name in Pakistani films and television before entering the Hindi film indutry with Hindi Medium. She has been parts of projects like Udaan, Baaghi Jinnah Ke Naam and Aina in the past. Her acting in Hindi Medium was also apperciated.

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
