Saba Qamar, Osman Khalid Butt and Khalid Malik all set for Qandeel Baloch's biopic

Published: June 14, 2017


Saba Qamar is all set to star in the late social media queen Qandeel Baloch’s biopic Baaghi.

The Lahore Se Aagey star has already proved her mettle with her Bollywood debut in Hindi Medium and now, she must be applauded for the roles she’s all taking on next: Qandeel.

Saba, who is known in the industry for her bold and daring persona, has taken up another role that might shape her career ahead.

The Maat star has apparently chopped off her long locks to look like of the slain social media star, and has been teasing us with few glimpses from her upcoming venture.

The actor is currently busy shooting for Baaghi and we have reason to believe that Osman Khalid Butt will be seen essaying an imperative role in the drama.

Saba has lately been posting pictures of herself with the Diyar-e-Dil star, hinting at Osman’s involvement in the project.

While we are yet to hear about the Balu Mahi star’s role in the biopic, can we just say that we are extremely excited for it!

Osman also took to Instagram to reveal the names of their characters. Saba will be seen as Kanwal, Osman will play the role of Shehryar and Khalid Malik will be seen as a character named Rehan.

Apart from Saba, the rest of the characters are being kept in the dark. Sarmad Khoosat will be essaying the role of Qandeel’s brother.

    Is QB really an inspiration? woman who chose the path of vulgarity just because she was denied jobs constantly?. Even though her murder was unjust, we should avoid giving her an iconic status as she wasn’t the representative of our Islamic values.Recommend

    This story needs to be told….and told correctly. If the movie flops, it will be because our viewing public wish to keep their head stuck in the sand.Recommend

    Donate something on the name of Qandeel to poor people instead of earning money on her name …if you wanna tribute. May Allah gives her eternal peace. AmeenRecommend
