Marking her debut in the Tamil film industry with the Pa Ranjith’s directorial, Huma cannot stop gushing over her co-actor Rajinikanth. In an interview with Mid-Day, Huma said, “He is such a simple human being! He doesn’t take stardom seriously, is disciplined and kindhearted. He made me so comfortable around him. He is a spiritual man and has a calming effect on everyone around him. Once you meet him, there is no question of being intimidated by him. I can’t begin to quantify what I’ve learnt from him. It’s an experience that will reflect in my work long after the movie is out.”

Kaala which has Rajinikanth playing a gangster yet again is set in the backdrop of Dharavi, which is a home for the largest Tamil speaking population in Mumbai. The film also stars Nana Patekar and Pankaj Tripathi.

Commenting on this, Huma was quoted as saying, “The beauty of my character, Zareena, is that it’s layered and nuanced. I have never done anything like this before. I took it up as a challenge and followed my director’s instructions. It’s a movie that will reach places where people haven’t seen me.”
