Saba Qamar’s Bollywood debut film Hindi Medium opposite Irrfan Khan has now earned almost INR3 billion at the worldwide box office.
A local newspaper compared Saba’ with Mahira Khan saying, “Saba Qamar’s ‘Hindi Medium’ beats Mahira Khan’s ‘Raees,‘ with global earnings of INR3 billion.”
While there’s no need for comparison and it’s great to see Pakistani talent earn recognition globally, there seem to be some serious competitive vibes around!
“Yes! I don’t like insulting jokes! #respectoneanother #nocomparisonplease,” Saba posted in response to Mahira’s fun rap battle vs Osman Khalid Butt from last year, where she playfully questioned, ‘kya aap ki filmein bhi hein 100 crore kamati’?
Since then, the actress has removed the post.
While we’re sure they don’t intend on insulting each other on purpose, one thing is pretty clear; Saba found Mahira’s joke insulting. However, we wish both the talented actors all the best and hope to see them make Pakistan proud!
Competition and comparison aside, Mahira Khan’s cool rap with Osman Khalid Butt was pretty entertaining! Watch below:
