LAHORE : Saba Qamar made her Bollywood debut alongside acclaimed actor Irrfan Khan in Hindi Medium. The starlet recently bagged her first Filmfare Award nomination for Best Actor (Female) in a Leading Role.
Khan won the Best Actor (Male) in a Leading Role for the film, while Hindi Medium was crowned the Best Film.
The recent buzz is that after bagging such big honours, the film will be returning with a sequel.
Directed by Saket Chaudhary, who has earlier made franchise films like Pyaar Ke Side Effects and Shaadi Ke Side Effects, Hindi Medium dealt with the trials and tribulations of a couple from Chandni Chowk, who wanted their daughter to study in an English medium school.
It went on to become a super hit at the box office. Saba played the lead in the first part of the movie. However, according to numerous Indian publications, it is highly unlikely that the starlet will be coming back for the sequel.
Confirming the development, producer Bhushan Kumar says, “The script is ready and we are starting pre-production of the film. Hindi Medium was my first award as a producer. People loved the film and Irrfan is ready as well. We will be going on the floors once the preparatory work is complete.”
The Baaghi actor believes that the success of her Bollywood debut has proved the talent of Pakistani artists. Talking to APP, Saba said,”I hope my hard work has brightened the name of Pakistan and our film industry globally.”
“With the grace of God, I received a positive response for my first venture in our neighbouring country,” added the Maat starlet.
She went on to add, “After the massive success of Hindi Medium, the producers are all set for a schedule. I hope Irrfan and I get to work in the second instalment of the blockbuster.”
