Almost about a years ago in Lux Style Awards, Pakistani actress Mahira Khan got in an exciting rap-segment battle with Osman Butt Khalid and during that, Mahira Khan projected a little dialogue that almost seemed like she challenged her fellow divas.
Mahira Khan, while following the script taunted her fellow actresses by saying:
“KUCH ACTRESSES KEHTI HAN MUJHE ACTING NAHI ATI, KIYA APKI BHI FILMEN HAIN 100 CORERS KAMATI”,
(Translation: Some actresses have said I cannot act, have your films earned 100 crorers as well?).
To which Saba Qamar stated that she didn’t like insulting jokes. Moreover, as soon as Saba Qamar’s Hindi Medium touched the 100 Crore barrier in China, she posted a message on her Instagram. However, she later deleted it.
“Q: KYA APKI FILMEIN BHI HEIN 100 CRORE KAMATI?, A: YES! I DON’T LIKE INSULTING JOKES! #RESPECTONEANOTHER #NOCOMPARISONPLEASE”.
This response stirred social media into a strong debate and fans began to worry if this could turn into a cold war for the two amazing actresses. The debate sparked all over social media and everyone started supporting their favorite actresses.
Watch her whole rap segment at Lux Style Awards 2017 below:
Luckily, Osman Butt Khalid found out and stepped in the room to diffuse the situation. Fans calmed down after he explained that he was the one who had written the daring script for the rap-segment and in no way has anything to do with the Raees actress. The post read:
“Would just like to clarify that as the writer of the rap-segment I take full responsibility for the joke, not Mahira. It was written as a rebuttal – the segment had playfully made fun of her (her TV and film repertoire) before she launched into her rap. It was designed to pinpoint any actress, and was only an exaggerated response to the industry folk who had claimed she could not act. We took on all rumor-mills an hearsay surrounding her. I apologize if it offended you; I had tried clearing the air before during the Baaghi shoot as well.” Osman Butt Khalid said.
Saba Qamar’s Hindi medium has crossed over 3 billion in China alone and her acting skills are indeed speaking volumes. Additionally, no matter who it is every actor is in this industry because they have tremendous skills. It’s time we appreciate them.
