Top television actress Mehar Bano has made a startling revelation during an interview that actress Saba Qamar had come to her rescue when she was first harassed.

As Pakistan's drama industry touching new boundaries, it slowly and steadily becomes home to a whole lot of filth. One of the major dilemmas plaguing the industry is workplace harassment, which only a handful of celebrities have spoken against and the Churails star Mehar Bano is one of them.

Recently, the Daagh actress sat down for a detailed interview with Something Haute where she made an explosive revelation that Saba Qamar came to her rescue when she was first harassed.

Delving into details of the incident, the Lashkara actress recalled that she was quite young and immature at that time, "During the shooting, I was harassed by a mike wala on the set. As I was young at the time, I didn't understand what was going on. I was just shocked."

Mehar Bano went on to say that the Cheekh superstar was one of the few people who stood up for her and took action immediately. Next, the Baaghi star even got the harasser kicked out from the set.

Further, the star went on to add that this was the only time someone came to her protection. "After this incident, I realized that you can be harassed by anyone at any time, so you should strengthen yourself and keep your eyes open," she maintained. 

On the work front, the 27-year-old actress is being highly applauded for her performance in the record-breaking drama serial Khuda Aur Mohabbat 3 where she plays the role of Mahi’s best friend, Rida.
