Social media has become the hub for trolls and they do not necessarily need any major reason to insult people. Pakistani actress Saba Qamar recently found herself in the middle of some sleazy comments and insults. In a behind-the-scenes video that has been going viral, the Hindi Medium actress was gearing up for a shoot.
Saba could be seen in a white shirt, a coat on her shoulders and a cigarette in her hand. This was enough for Twitter users to slam the actress. The 34-year-old actress was slut-shamed for her clothes and smoking by trolls.

While Saba preferred to remain silent, her contemporaries and co-actors came in her support. Celebrities, including Osman Khalid Butt, Adnan Siddiqui, and Aijaz Aslam, took to Twitter in a bid to shut the trolls.

Earlier, another Pakistani actress Mahira Khan was slammed for smoking a cigarette while she was hanging out with Ranbir Kapoor. Addressing the controversy on “HARDtalk on BBC World News, Mahira said, “That was the first time in my entire career that I was caught up in a so-called controversy and it was strange because there were so many things in that. One, obviously you feel violated, you are in a personal downtime moment and someone has just photographed you.”
