Saqib Saleem, who will be seen in DIL JUUNGLEE, is super excited for his film, as it’s a rom-com, after Saqib is seen packing few punches and scaring the shit out of people in DOBAARA along with his sister Huma Quershi.
This is the first time Saqib and Taapsee are paired opposite each other, and Saqib is all praise for the lady.
In conversation with Saqib as he talks about box office numbers, film, the Jungleest thing he has done, and why he won’t do any film with Huma.
When asked him what the craziest thing he has done to which he said, “I am so junglee in real life. I jump, I have played adventure sports, played pranks on friends, my mom is like now you become an actor, you should tone down a bit.”
When asked if he has played pranks on his sister Huma to which he said, “We were very young mostly, 10-12 years Huma threw a ball on me, I just put an iron on her and she got burn mark (this was all fun ).”
On being quizzed what made him take up this role to which he said, “I believed in the script, I was doing a serious film and I decided to do something in comedy. It was so much fun shooting for the film.”
Talking about co-star Taapsee, he candidly said, “Taapsee has done several action packed films. I was scared of Taapsee. I thought she would punch me while doing a romantic scene. In fact she is the best girl I have worked with. We both have so many things in common, as we both are from Delhi, our language, the food we eat and especially we like, chole bhature. The movie is not intense, it’s a fun and a cute love story that never goes away.”
When asked him about working with Huma, he said, “I was sad when DOBAARA didn’t work, it hurts when a film doesn’t work. I don’t want to do a film with Huma as of now, may be later.”
