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."
