You were one of the Bahu’s in Baa Bahu Aur Baby. You have worked a lot with Hats Off productions. How was your experience working with them?
To this, Lubna Salim replied by saying that she was the only non-Gujarati amongst all of them and the biggest connection between all of them was that they were all from theatre background, due to which they had a good practice of rehearsing everyday behind the scenes and since she was the only non-Gujarati, at the end of the serial, Aatish Kapadia told everyone that they have ‘Gujaratified’ her.
How was your experience shooting with Paresh Rawal sir for OMG?
To this, Lubna Salim replied by saying that Umesh Shukla is her college friend while Paresh Rawal knew her because of her theatre. So one day when they had called her, she came on the sets where Paresh Rawal and Umesh Shukla tried to convince her for the part even though she kept telling them that she doesn’t do movies. However, Umesh Shukla assured her that she won’t regret this and so signed for the role. Talking about her challenges with Paresh Rawal, Lubna Salim said that the movie was based on a play and Paresh Rawal had absorbed the character completely but yet he was always to rehearse with her and was always very supportive.
