Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat has always been criticised for getting highest civilian honour Tamgha-e-Imtiaz. But, she is not the only actress who has received this prestigious honour. Actress Saba Qamar is also one of the recipients of Tamgha-e-Imtiaz.
Earlier in 2012, Saba was awarded Tamgha-e-Imtiaz for her contribution in arts and cinema. She is the recipient of several accolades, including four Lux Style Awards, a Hum Award, and also a Filmfare Award nomination for her Bollywood debut. The Pakistan government honoured her with two of the country’s highest civilian awards, the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz in 2012, and Pride of Performance in 2016.
While talking about all the awards, Saba once said in an interview, “No doubt awards and nominations are very important for encouraging an artist. But my biggest achievement is the love and the appreciation that I receive from my fans. Their expectations to do better is the most exciting part for me. The bond and relationship that I have developed with my audience over time is my biggest achievement so far”.
She is known for her immaculate acting skills and also her acute sense of fashion and glamour across the globe.
Saba Qamar is loved by many and her award was well-received by Pakistanis. However, when Mehwish received the same award in the same category she was brutally trolled from right to left. Many people also questioned the credibility of the award.
But, if you ask us, there have been multiple times when this Tamgha-e-Imtiaz girl has left us in utter shock and excitement because of her kind deeds and acting skills. Despite criticisms, Mehwish has always felt proud to get the honour by the Pakistani government.
