At first, all we knew about Saba Qamar debut in Bollywood film was that “it was a little like Piku”.
After her film debut in Manto as Noor Jehan, Saba Qamar snapped up a lead role in Wajahat Rauf’s highly awaited follow-up to Karachi Se Lahore, titled Lahore Se Aagey.
But she won’t be stopping to catch her breath after that shoot’s wrapped up.
Saba says she’ll soon be flying off to India for Saba Qamar debut in Bollywood.
In this debut Bollywood film, Saba will star opposite The Lunchbox actor Irrfan Khan.
“It’s a family-oriented story of a husband and wife. It has a young, fresh vibe and the wife is a little dominating. People will surely like it,” she said to Images. “The film is a little like that Deepika film, Piku.”
The film will be directed by Saket Chaudhry of Shaadi Ke Side Effects and Pyaar Ke Side Effects fame. It will be produced by Illuminati Films, which has previously backed titles like Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail.
Now, we have more details about the project, Saba Qamar debut in Bollywood.
According to Times of India, the Saket Choudhary film is titled Hindi Medium.
Saba had also earlier hinted that it was a story about a husband (played by Irrfan Khan) and his slightly domineering wife. But what is their story? TOI reports that it is a light-hearted comedy about a couple living in Chandni Chowk “who want to move into Delhi’s upper crust”.
The film’s shoot will begin in July or August this year as Saba Qamar debut in Bollywood.
