Irrfan Khan's joke lands Saba Qamar in trouble, Actress receives death threats?

Irrfan Khan surely knows how to ease up a situation and make everyone laugh with his witty comments. Recently, the actor was quizzed about his upcoming film Hindi Medium that also stars Pakistani actress Saba Qamar at an event in the neighbouring country.
Given that Pakistani artistes are banned from working in Indian films following the Uri attacks, one wonders if Saba is still a part of Irrfan's film.
When the media asked Irrfan about it, he didn't want to get misquoted on the issue and hence joked. Khan quipped that the actress is now married to an Indian and hence technically is now an Indian.
While the press understood the joke it was somehow made into breaking headlines in Pakistan leaving the actor completely amused. Not just that, but the actor's joke also landed Saba in some serious trouble. She has been receiving lot of death threats as some people in Pakistan think that she has married an Indian.
A little birdie informs us, "Irrfan joked about the situation so that he doesn't get misquoted. But he didn't know that his remark will land Saba in trouble. She has been receiving death threats now and people are actually believing that Saba has married an Indian."

Nobody should be denied opportunities to better their lives, find happiness & have a good life. Empower beauties of Pakistan. Pollywood is welcome to Bollywood. India & Pakistan should again become one country with opportunities for everybody in every walk of life. Find happiness, get rid of bigottry & hate.

Pakistani men & women are lot prettier than Indian counter parts because they have Afghan, Persian, Turkish & mongol blood in them. As you move from North to South, this is the case. I am a Hindu brahmin of the highest class & love to marry a Pakistan beauty (Mehwish Hyatt & Saba Qumar) anytime. Personally religion does not mean much to me. It is time that we as men stop hating people on religious grounds & treat people as human beings, love & get along with each other. Pakistani models & actresses are welcome to the oppurtunities in Bollywood movies & make name, fame, money for themselves.

No body touches my Saba, I love her! She's so gorgeous even without all the crazy make up and everything and such an amazing actress, I'm a Pakistani and some people take things so seriously it's sick because they can't understand humor and some Indians do too but this is the limit. I love Saba, keep smiling and I guess she will not be able to work on this film. It's sad though, she's one girl who extremely pretty and I mean GORGEOUS and has amazing charm and is such a good natural actress. She's like a full package, it's sad that she will not be able to show case her talent in India.

Pakistani women are much more prettier than Indian, just go out on the streets and see and they are more natural not fake looking.
