New Delhi: A two year old video of Pakistani actress Saba Qamar bashing Indian actors on a chat show has been trending on the internet.
In the clip from the show Good Morning Zindagi, she is seen taking jabs at famous Bollywood actors like Salman Khan, Emraan Hashmi, Riteish Deshmukh and Hrithik Roshan among others.
In a video segment, 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. The video was posted on YouTube in May 2015.
Hrithik Roshan is shown first, who is rejected by Saba for being a father of two. Being nasty, however, she rejects Emraan Hashmi, because she didn’t want a ‘mouth cancer’. She later rejected Riteish Deshmukh because since she is an ‘A-grade’ actress in her country, and would want to work only with other A-grade actors in other countries as well. 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 the actor down because he had a ‘chakkar’ (affair) 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 went viral on the internet where she asked people to not be inspired by India or Bollywood 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 set to release on May 12.
