Saba Qamar has refuted rumours that she is starring in a film revolving Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Taking to Twitter, the actor slammed a publication that was claiming her to have signed a film around the life of the convicted Indian spy. “It’s always so funny to know that behind my back, I have signed another film that even I am not aware of!” the Baaghi star shared.  “Honestly, if I do a film, I will tell all of you myself. That’s what I am here for. I am only doing Kamli for now, so stop posting fake news for the sake of ratings only!”

The publication, however, added that they have confirmed the news from the producer of said film and two other sources.

To this, Saba said, “You have received confirmation from three sources but not me. Your claim of asking me for a confirmation before posting the news is totally wrong. I haven’t received any message like that.”

She added, “I’m denying this publicly because my name was used publicly without my consent for a project I’m not even a part of.”

Apart from Saba, actor Shamoon Abbasi also denied the news of starring in a film with the former. “A humble request to the producers and film-makers that are going to make films in the future, kindly lock things up with me before sending reports to bloggers and newspapers without any confirmation with me in the films,” he shared on Instagram. “This is the second film that I am mentioned in without any confirmation. Not that I mind but clarifying the matter with the news becomes a hassle indeed.”

On the work front, Saba has confirmed she is starring in Sarmad Khoosat’s Kamli, which will mark her return to the Pakistani big screen after a gap. Meanwhile, Shamoon is gearing up for his upcoming project, Durj. The film is all set to release on October 18 in Pakistan.
