Saba Qamar had come in for a lot of criticism after a video of her mocking Bollywood actors like Salman Khan, Emraan Hashmi, Hrithik Roshan, Riteish Deshmukh went viral on the internet.
With her Bollywood debut opposite Irrfan Khan in ‘Hindi Medium’ round the corner, the actress issued a clarification.
“’Good Morning Zindagi’ is a fun show where they ask you fun questions about Bollywood stars. Whatever I said about each of the actors was said just for fun at that moment. I love and respect the Indian film industry specially Salman Khan is such a huge star and so humble,” she said.
In the video, the actress unabashedly calls the Bollywood superstar a ‘Chhichhora’ (Cheap person), also taking a jibe at his dancing skills.
She also takes a dig at Emraan Hashmi, who enjoys immense popularity in Pakistan, suggesting she wouldn’t want to be diagnosed with oral cancer, taking a direct jibe at his serial-kisser tag.
The actress also mocks Riteish Deshmukh saying that she’d never do a movie with him since she’s an ‘A-list’ actress in Pakistan, and hence would want to star opposite an A-list actor, if she were to debut in Bollywood.
She calls Hrithik Roshan a ‘father of two sons’ she wouldn’t want to be involved with, calling him someone who isn’t her type.
Earlier, Mahira Khan, who debuted in Bollywood opposite Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Raees,’ had also faced a lot of flak for dissing Bollywood in a throwback video.
