It was a life-changing experience: Saba Qamar on ‘Baaghi’

New Delhi: ‘Zindagi’ is all set to premiere Saba Qamar starrer ‘Baaghi’ from June 28.
‘Baaghi’ is a tragic tale of honour killing of Fauzia Batool aka Qandeel Baloch that shocked the world.
Playing the lead role of Fauzia Batool, Saba depicts the life of a young ambitious Baloch girl from a quaint village who aspired to be a diva.
The show highlights her fight against all odds to carve her own identity as Qandeel Balouch. The story aims to humanize the late social media sensation, who was undeserving of the hatred she received.
Sharing her experience working on the show, the Pakistani actress Saba said in a statement, “Qandeel had a dynamic and feisty personality. A public figure, she always made headlines for her bold and outspoken nature and her life was often under the scanner. When I heard the script, I instantaneously connected with Qandeel’s brave and candid nature. Baaghi captures the essence of her fearless life perfectly.”
“Getting an opportunity to play such a fiery character on screen has been a life-changing experience and I feel nervous yet excited as Zindagi brings the series once again on its DTH services,” added Saba.
Speaking about the show, Shailja Kejriwal, Chief Creative Officer, Zee Special Projects, shared, “Baaghi is a real life story that mirrors the vulnerability of personalities in the public domain. It is a reflection to how society looks at social media stars, and their lives under the spotlight. Thought provoking content viewed from a social lens has been a strong focus for the stories we tell at Zindagi. We are proud to be bringing another such one to our audiences.”
