Huma and Nawazuddin will promote their movie on Zee’s TV show

Huma Qureshi and Nawazuddin Siddique will be a part of a special episode of Afsar Bitiya to promote their upcoming film Gangs Of Wasseypur 2. Since Afsar Bitiya is set in Bihar just like the film, the biggies involved thought it’s a perfect fit. And the best part is, their characters have been blended into the narrative very well. They don’t stick out the way film stars usually do when they appear on any TV show as part of their film’s promotional strategy.

The episode will see Faisal Khan (Nawazuddin) and Mohsina (Huma Qureshi) entering Tuntun Singh’s (Shahbaaz Khan) house. Faisal has come with the intention of including Krishna (Mitali Nag) in his election campaign against his archrival Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia). That’s when Tuntun Singh finds out that Faisal is the son of his friend Sardar Khan.

“We have gone to various places to promote our movie, but this is the warmest welcome we have ever got. Every person on the Afsar Bitiya set welcomed us with arms wide open making us feel at home almost instantly,” said Nawazuddin. Huma added, “Shahbaaz Ji, Mitali and Kinshuk (Mahajan) are such fun loving people that it never occurred to me that we are meeting for the first time. There can never be a serious moment with Kinshuk and Shahbaaz Ji around. I had a blast!”
