Saba Qamar came in third with her Bollywood debut in Hindi Medium, after being recommended to producers by international star Irrfan Khan. “Sometimes the co-actors become very important because your onscreen chemistry plays a vital role in the film. So when I saw her YouTube videos, I recommended her to the director and producer and they really liked her,” revealed Irrfan.
