Zeenat Aman expresses desire to play the role of Niloufer in Jubilee, Wamiqa Gabbi reacts

Wamiqa Gabbi has been in the news and has one of the biggest breakthroughs this year with her honest portrayal of Niloufer in Vikramaditya Motwane's Jubilee. It’s a dream role that many actresses would like to play. Now in the whole list of actresses, there is also a legend who has expressed her desire to play the character if given an opportunity. 

In a recent interview with comedian and host Zakir Khan, Zeenat was asked if she wanted to play a character from Jubilee, which one will it be. Without wasting a breath, she said Niloufer. “Damdar hai,” she explained it too. Wamiqa, who played the role flawlessly, said it was a huge compliment. Especially because Zeenat Aman, being a legend and coming from a different era of the industry, has acknowledged Wamiqa’s work.

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."
