Pakistani actress Saba Qamar found herself in top trends list after an old video in which she said she won't work with Salman Khan because he is chhichhora went viral and a day later on Friday she issued a statement saying that it was just for the "fun at that moment." Ms Qamar said in her statement: "Good Morning Zindagi is a fun show where they ask you fun questions about Bollywood stars.

I love and respect the Indian film industry especially Salman Khan, who is such a huge star and so humble," reports news agency IANS. The video first aired in 2015.
