Tina said she is not scared of the competition and is following her father's advice.
"I am not scared of the competition at all. My father told me, 'You do your work and don't get caught up in the competition'. I will follow just that," she told PTI.
Directed by Smeep Kang, "Second Hand Husband" also stars Punjabi singer-actor Gippy Grewal and Dharmendra.
Tina, who will be sharing screen-space with the "Yamla Pagla Deewana" star, said she was "very nervous" to work with the veteran actor but was thankful that she did not have to give many re-takes.
"Dharmendra sir has been my parents' idol. I grew up listening about him and idolising him too. So, when I was working with him I was very nervous."
The actress, who changed her name from Narmada to Tina, denied any numerological reason behind adapting a new moniker.
"I haven't changed my name. Tina is my nickname, which was given to me by my friends. Before joining the industry, I thought I will use this name as it is a cool name," she said.
Tina, who is happy with the response of the trailer, said she is just "going with the flow".
"Do your best and leave the rest," she said.
"Second Hand Husband" is set to release on July 3.
