Seems like Filmfare is giving credit where credit is due.

Saba Qamar, who got rave reviews and critical acclaim for her role in Hindi Medium alongside Irrfan Khan has bagged a Filmfare nomination!

The Pakistani actor will be battling it out with Alia Bhatt (Badrinath Ki Dulhania), Sridevi (Mom), Bhumi Pednekar (Shubh Mangal Saavdhan), Vidya Balan (Tumhari Sulu) and Zaira Wasim (Secret Superstar) in the 'Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female)' category.

Hindi Medium managed to rack up five nominations including 'Best Film' and 'Best Director'; Raees and Mom also got nominated in five different categories. However, surprisingly neither Mahira Khan or Sajal Aly were nominated for their respective roles.

Saba Qamar recently bagged Best Breakthrough at the Masala Awards late last year owing to her smashing Bollywood debut opposite Irrfan Khan in Hindi Medium.
