Last week, Saba Qamar shared a post on Instagram with singer Bilal Saeed about the latter’s upcoming song. Qubool. The actor shared that the song will be her directorial debut and she will also star in it. The collaboration was being awaited anxiously until the audience came to know that it had been shot at the Wazir Khan mosque.
The duo received flak over ‘disrespecting’ the mosque.
He started of by saying: “Saba Qamar and I had recently filmed a nikkah sequence at Wazir Khan Mosque which created a big misunderstanding and hurt the emotions of a lot of people.”
Saeed went onto explain that all the speculation about the ‘dance sequences’ being shot within the premises of the mosque were false.
“Alhamdulilah I am a Muslim and I was raised in a Muslim household. I cannot even think about doing something that would disrespect my religion.”
“I solemnly affirm in the name of Allah that neither did we play any music in the mosque and nor did we dance and the witness to that is the management of the mosque.”
According to the Baari singer, the video going viral on social media was only shot for taking a few pictures that would have been featured in the song. He also shared that the segment that was filmed in the mosque has been removed from the video.
“There was a move that we did for the sake of the photo shoot. We were not following any dance sequence and neither was there any music playing in the background. We understand that we have unintentionally made a mistake and we are acknowledging our mistake.”
“Saba Qamar and I, are just humans like others and it’s only human to make mistakes,” he concluded.
