Sarmad Khoosat won another loud applause for his soon-to-be-released film Kamli’s at its Lahore premiere on Wednesday. While on social media, the talk was primarily focused on the film’s ace actor Saba Qamar’s ‘bold’ outfit at the premiere.

Kamli is now one of the most anticipated films of the year and Twitter can vouch for it. Due for a nationwide cinematic release on Friday, June 3, the romantic thriller has already created a lot of hype.

The film starring acting giants Saba Qamar, Sania Saeed, Nimra Bucha, Omair Rana, and the young mystery hero Hamza Khwaja in titular roles is touted to be the “best Pakistani film till date” by fans on social media.

The same fans and users, however, were quick to criticize Qamar’s choice of dressing at the Lahore premiere that took place yesterday. While many from the entertainment industry complemented the actor, fans and followers could not handle her dress and bashed her for wearing a ‘revealing’ outfit. 

Here is what she wore:

The world of glam and limelight is certainly not a piece of cake. Many of us think it is easy, but no, not at all. As a matter of fact, the world of glam can be very cruel and controversial at times and that can see in some of the comments under the posts.

Their choice of clothing does not reflect their character, moral standing, and ethics. But we are quick to jump to not only question their character but the kind of upbringing they had. 

Commentators have a lot to say:

Celebrities often receive criticism for their lifestyle choices. And especially female stars tend to be the main target of trolls due to their dressing choices. Qamar has once again been put at the receiving end of not only the fashion police but also the moral police.

Nonetheless, the actor is unapologetic about almost everything. Especially when it comes to going against the tide. That being so, the Hum Sab Umeed Se Hain host is often brought under the radar for almost everything that she says, does, or wears, for that matter.

Trolling and criticizing people for their personal choices is an old habit of us Pakistanis. Not so long ago, the renowned actor Saba Qamar was also trolled for her bathrobe photoshoot.

We have seen similar criticism directed at almost every other female celebrity in our country. Aima Baig, the young singer who is beloved by her fans for her humility and elegant voice, recently ruffled feathers when she donned a bold western outfit, resulting in harsh remarks from social media users.
