In a recent interview with Zeenat Aman, she was asked which character from Jubilee she would like to play, she immediately replied, “Niloufer”. She further says, “Damdar hai.”
In response, Wamiqa said, “I remember watching her films and songs. She is one of the most confident, progressive and unapologetically sexy actresses of the times. She always stood out from the rest. She embodies the very term confident and redefines Desire even till date ! It was just so beautiful to be validated by an Absolute Diva who resonated with my portrayal of Niloufar. It’s overwhelming for me to just know that she’s watched the series and she loved it and, if given a chance, she would like to play Niloufer. I am truly honoured and ecstatic. I hope that she likes my other performances in the future.”
