NEW DELHI: Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan and Pakistani actress Saba Qamar will be seen together in a new flick titled Hindi Medium which will be released on May 19 in India. Interestingly, it was Irrfan Khan who recommended the beautiful Pakistani actress to the producers and director of the movie.
Bollywood actors have a discerning eye towards Pakistani talent. After Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan made waves in India with blockbuster movies, Saba Qamar looks to be the latest Pakistani export who will make a name for herself alongside Irrfan Khan in Hindi Medium.
According to Irrfan, the actor saw Saba Qamar's work on YouTube and was instantly won over by her.
"Sometimes the co-actors become very important because your onscreen chemistry plays a vital role for the film. So when I saw her YouTube videos, I recommended her to the director and producer and they really liked her," he said.
The movie focuses on Saba Qamar and Irrfan Khan's characters, a couple who are on a quest to get their daughter admitted in a posh school. Saba plays the English-speaking wife of Irrfan while the latter does not have a single clue regarding the language.
The film's trailer, upon release, was met with critical reception both in India and Pakistan.
