A two year old video of Pakistani actor Saba Qamar bashing Indian actors on a chat show has resurfaced on the internet. In the clip from the show Good Morning Zindagi, she is taking jabs at Salman Khan, Emraan Hashmi, Riteish Deshmukh and Hrithik Roshan among others.
In a particular segment of the video, which was posted on YouTube in May 2015, host Noor Bukhari shows pictures of a few Bollywood actors and asks Saba to reject hypothetical film offers with each of them, while giving a reason.
Hrithik Roshan is shown first, who is rejected by Saba for being a father of two. Her nastiest blow, however, was thrown at Emraan Hashmi, whom she rejects because she didn’t want a ‘mouth cancer’. She rejects Riteish Deshmukh because since she is an ‘A-grade’ actress in her country, she would want to work only with other A-grade actors, even in India. Finally, Salman Khan is turned down for being ‘chichora’ (cheap) and not knowing how to dance.
The only actor she could not reject was Ranbir Kapoor. ‘Of course darling, I am ready for you,’ she said. But on insistence by the host, she finally turned him down because he had a ‘chakkar’ with Deepika Padukone.
The video started trending in India on Thursday.
A few days ago, an old video of Pakistani actor Mahira Khan bad-mouthing Bollywood also resurfaced. “Aapko India se inspire nahi hona chahiye. Bilkul nahi. Hum Bollywood nahi hain (We should never be inspired by Indians. We are not Bollywood),” she had said to Pakistani comedian Omar Sharif on a chat show in 2011.
These videos appear to be adding fuel to the already tensed relations between India and Pakistan ever since the Uri attacks in September 2016.
Saba is making her Bollywood debut with Irrfan Khan in Hindi Medium, which is slated to release on May 12.
