While one often hears about cat fights on the sets where two actresses are working together, on the sets of Dedh Ishqiya it was a different story. Madhuri Dixit and Huma Qureshi bonded big time while shooting for the film.
Says a source from the sets, “Huma’s maximum scenes are with Madhuri since they play best friends in the film. Madhuri made the young actress feel pretty much at ease and the two got along like a house on fire.
Adds the source, “When not shooting they would spend time solving crosswords and co-actor Naseeruddin Shah would also join in. They would all compare who had solved more of the cryptic clues.”
The biggest bonding, however, was on the Rajasthani dal and Khooba roti. “While shooting in Rajasthan, the two bonded on the local fare which the entire team used to gorge on,” the source informs.
Incidentally, Huma has been a huge Madhuri fan since she was a kid and always admired her beauty and acting. Working with her was a huge opportunity for the Gangs of Wasseypur actress.
