A source says, "This was a special screening that was organised only for the film's cast and crew. Huma wanted to watch this film for a long time so she made it a point to attend the screening and support her brother, Saqib."

Also present at this screening was actor-and-filmmaker Amol Gupte's son, Partho. When Huma went to meet Saqib during the interval, her brother introduced her to Partho Gupte. "She said that she liked his work and before she could speak any further, he suddenly bent down to touch her feet. Huma didn't know how to react.

Other guests too couldn't control their laughter after witnessing this scene. Huma eventually regained her composure and chided Partho that she isn't that old after all. She asked him to not do it again." Huma remained unavailable for comment.
