"It is an Abhishek Chaubey film as well. I was so thrilled. I remember watching `Ishqiya`, it was amazing. I didn`t even dream of the fact that I will get an opportunity to be part for the sequel. It is really amazing," she said.
Huma has replaced Kangna Ranaut to be a part of the movie.

of every actor. I feel blessed that as a newcomer, I am working with both of
them. It is really special," the 26-year-old said.
"Vishal is really one of a kind in the country right now and Ekta has completely taken over the whole place. To be a woman and to be able to pull that off, hats off to her. She is a fantastic producer."
It is overwhelming for Huma that such filmmakers want to work with her.
"I don`t have the mental capacity to do any more work. It`s a good time. I am reading good scripts, people are pushing very interesting concepts and ideas. It is really overwhelming that such cool filmmakers want to work with me. Like I said, these are on the wish list of every actor. I only pray that I am able to do justice to whatever work that comes my way."
