Urdu1’s drama “Baaghi” featuring the renowned Pakistani actress Saba Qamar is all set to hit the airwaves in the upcoming month. Already a lot of hype has been weaved around the drama as it will unveil the story of the late social media sensation, Qandeel Baloch.
The first teaser of one of the most anticipated drama has been released by Urdu1 and we think Saba has definitely nailed her new avatar!
The story which is written by Umera Ahmed is being directed by Farooq Rind.
You can watch the teaser here:
The trailer starts with Saba Qamar saying, “None of it bothers me at all,” and ends with her calling everyone a liar which in all honesty is an apt description of the prevalent hypocrisy in our society.
The short 14 seconds teaser shows Qandeel’s life and her treatment at home by her father and brothers.
In an interview to a private media channel Saba has shared:
“Qandeel represented the double standards that exist in our society. She had the courage to expose how two-faced people could be.”
And Saba is determined to play the role, regardless of threats that could follow. “Let them follow,” shrugs Saba. “Everyone has to die someday. I’d rather die after doing something worthwhile.”
Additionally, the complete cast of the drama includes Saba Qamar, Ali Kazmi, Sarmad Khoosat, Osman Khalid Butt as well as Khalid Malik.
So far from the teaser we think Saba Qamar has managed to capture the true essence of the Pakistani internet sensation Qandeel Baloch. We definitely look forward to her performance in her upcoming venture and wish her the best of luck!
