Saba Qamar and Bilal Saeed landed in hot water after their pictures of shooting an upcoming music video ‘Qubool Hai’ at the historic Wazir Khan Mosque in Lahore went viral.
Social media stormed by a debate over a ‘behind the scenes’ TikTok video posted by the actress in which she and Bilal can be seen making dance moves. A number of people demanded authorities to set-up an inquiry on this matter.

Meanwhile, Saba posted first-look of her debut music video as a director and clarified that only ‘Nikkah Scene’ was shot in the Mosque.
“Presenting the first teaser of ‘Qubool’. This is also the only sequence that was shot at the historical Wazir Khan Mosque. It was neither shot with any sort of playback music nor has it been edited to the music track. I won’t explain any further as the full video comes out on the 11th of August,” she wrote.
Adding on, she said; “The BTS video that’s making rounds on social media was just a circular movement to click stills for the poster of ‘Qubool’ depicting a happily married couple right after their Nikah.”
On the other hand, several reports claim that the private production company violated the NoC according to which only shooting ‘Nikkah Scene’ was permitted and not music visuals.
