Social media is a place where you can get anything. It can either be constructive or destructive. It’s not entirely wrong to say that a post can become viral in no time, and that’s what exactly happened in this recent case. Pakistani actress Saba Qamar is being brutally trolled by the netizens over her leaked photographs on the social media, in which she is smoking. Apparently the pictures were taken when she was on a break during a photo-shoot.
Saba is one of the leading and highest paid telly actresses in Pakistan. With her flawless performances and her top-notch acting skills she has bagged many awards and much critical acclaim. In fact, her film ‘Hindi Medium’ which also stars Irrfan Khan has been very well received by the audiences.
In the photo which seems to have gone viral, it can be clearly seen that Saba Qamar is holding a cigarette in her hand. It seems that this picture has made our netizens furious. Some even lashed out at her on the social media and said mean things.
Take a look at what the Pakistani conservatives had to say about the actress:

However, there were Pakistani celebrities who stood by the actress and defended her. Here’s what Adnan Siddiqui said:
Came through what’s being called BTS images of my colleague and a friend #SabaQamar’s recently done photoshoot which is spreading on social media like wildfire, I’m deeply saddened by this act, this is not us and we shouldn’t take pride in it in any manner! I totally condemn this and wouldn’t want to highlight the name of a man behind it but I’m not going to work for with him or anything associated with him ever! #support #friendship #pakistanshowbiz #Colleague #together #pakistan .
Osman Khalid Butt, who shared screen space with Saba in popular TV show ‘Baaghi’ also stood with the actress!
Just heard about the all-too-familiar misogynistic, repulsive rhetoric that's swept the nation once BTS pictures from Saba's photoshoot were leaked (WITHOUT her consent). First: you do not fuck with Saba Qamar. Period. Second: For the love of God, stop looking for every excuse to drag your icons down. Third: STOP sharing these images/videos and stop commenting on them. If you want to speak out, speak out against the jahalat of whoever did this just for social media infamy.
Aijaz Aslam also defended the actress!
Today I feel sad that a colleague and one of the finest actor of Pakistan is being exploited by someone for a cheap publicity stunt … it was just a simple BTS ( behind the scene) vdo during a photo shoot from which the screen shots were taken and made viral on social media … its disgusting that people can go upto any extent for cheap publicity… saba you are a superstar and don’t let these haters demotivate you .. #wesupport #sabaqamar #pakistanidrama #pakistanimovie #pakistanifilm #repost #instapakistan #instalike #movieshoovy #divamagazinepakistan #showbizpakistan
Trolling has become a trend! People nowadays say anything to anyone without even thinking that it might affect the person in the long run. As far as smoking is concerned, it is indeed injurious to health, but it is also important to remember that smoking is totally a personal choice. Trolling someone just because she smokes doesn’t make any sense. Does it?
