Huma revisits British era

While shooting , Huma took a history lesson when she met with India’s last Vicerine’s (Lady Edwina Mountbatten) 80-year-old translator, Jaya Thadani, in London.
Their regular interaction gave Huma a lot of information related to the Viceroy's era.

Huma is part of Lord Mountbatten’s entourage and there’s a love story woven in between her and another member of the staff.
