Talking about working with Huma, Saurabh said: “It was a joy working with Huma. She is very professional and at the same time very humble and fun on the sets. It is very crucial because I believe that the vibe and energy on the film set reflects on the screen. She is ‘Rani Bharati’, the moment she steps on the set.” “It’s admirable how she picked the Bihari accent so well that one cannot make out that she is not from Bihar or even from a rural part of India. I think she is the most versatile actor we have. Maharani has been a very popular show and the cast and crew made me feel at home,” he added.
