We can all agree that Umaima blew us away in Mrs. & Mr. Shameem! Let’s not forget Saba Qamar’s outstanding performance in all her past projects, be it in Bollywood, Lollywood or Pakistani Television, she owns every frame she’s in! Apart from being a powerhouse of talent, she also has a great mind. Here are 9 life experiences that she shared with FUCHSIA. Scroll down to get enlightened!
1. Work Has Made Saba More Patient & Empathetic
When I used to come back home after all night, the thought of waking up my maid to get me something to eat used to disturb me because it would be unfair to her.
2. She Received Eidi From Irrfan Khan!
Saba shared a precious memory and keepsake she carries from the sets of Hindi Medium. She might want to frame that one and we won’t be surprised if she does!
I asked Irrfan Khan to give me Eidi and I have his signed note. I must frame it.
3. This Revelation Came As A Surprise To Saba
Saba Qamar shares a revelation she found hard to wrap her head around.
You think that nothing is more sacred than the bond of marriage and then a supposedly happily married man (who might have had a love marriage) approaches you and you are completely taken aback!
4. Saba Highlights The Bitter Truth Of Power Imbalance In A Marriage
Even if a woman is running the entire household, it will be the man sitting at home who will make the decisions and whose voice matters.
5. Her Thoughts On ‘The One’
The one who is in love with you will give you time, importance and all the care you need without you ever asking from them in the first place.
6. On The Need For Companionship In Old Age
My father passed away when I was very young. At that time my mother managed to pass the time. You get busy in life. But in old age, you need a companion. She has nothing to do. She needs companionship. But till today she says keh log kya kahenge? Does a person not deserve another person?
7. Nothing But Praises For Nauman Ijaz & His Talent
Nauman Ijaz is an acting school in himself. I could not expect that such a manly person can do such an effeminate character, revealed Saba.
8. Saba On Speaking Up Against Wrongs
You must always raise a voice for injustice or where you feel something is going wrong. I try and do that. Even if only 4 people are listening.

Other actors might not feel anything but for me, every character I have performed has become a part of me now.
