Saba Qamar, one of the leading and talented Pakistani actresses, has never shied away from speaking her mind. Be it about stigmas attached to mental health and depression in our society, the struggles female celebrities encounter in the industry, sexism, colorism, or answering awkward interview questions with sarcasm yet class, Saba Qamar is one actress who is known for bold demeanor besides her unmatched acting talent.
If you haven’t come across the starlet’s YouTube channel yet, you are totally missing out on some amazing content. The Hindi Medium star is breaking stereotypes, one video at a time!
Attacking the Rishta brigade in Pakistan, the actress released episode 5 of her #breakingstereotypes series on YouTube. She even highlights social issues like fat shaming and gender equality.
Watch the clip here:
The actress took to her Instagram and shared a funny and refreshing snippet of her latest episode, that has been going viral ever since. According to Saba, episode 5 is one her favourite episodes of the series yet. “This bunch of talented people came together to address the unaddressed,” the actress wrote in the video caption.
With the recently released episode 5, Saba once again is breaking stereotypes by having much needed conversations about the rishta culture in Pakistan, the struggles of body-shaming, casting in interviews, and ofcourse, gender equality. Saba Qamar has unapologetically stood up for feminist values and even highlighted what it’s like to be at the receiving end of derogatory comments and remarks, being a female and always in the public eye.
Watch the full episode below:
In the 17-minute video, the actress has specifically targeted the Rishta culture and what it’s like for women to marry over 30 in our society. Her monologue that starts at 4.10 is specially worth a listen as she talks about the kind of rishtas females receive in our society and how the Rishta huting process has turned into a business. In the end she says;
“I want to get married for myself, not for people. Tou Shaadhi kero, Karobar nahi”.
While it’s refreshing to see content creators advocate equal rights and opportunities for the female gender in their videos, it would be interesting to see more female content creators getting the limelight as well.
Saba Qamar shot an intense video addressing depression and mental health. She posted this on YouTube after the tragic death of Sushant Singh Rajput.
Watch her video here:
It’s so good to see powerful women of the industry raise their voices for causes and speak up on things of substance, rather than their makeup and workout regimens. I wish more actresses take inspiration from Saba Qamar and come forward with interesting content for entertainment purposes.
