Urvashi Sharma, who is making her debut in Bollywood with Naqaab, shared a common bond with her co-star Bobby Deol. The actors have a Punjabi connection.

The newcomer, who is a Punjabi based in Delhi, felt very nice when Bobby used to say Ki haal hain on the movie sets. She said it used to add to her comfort level.

"Bobby is a real Punjabi at heart. His heart is as big as Punjab. Though I was making my debut he was so patient and helped me. He is an excellent human being," said Urvashi.

"Even in one sequence which was not choreographed, Bobby literally showed me to dance free style. He was so encouraging," she added.

The actors also shared stories about Punjab and talked about food, festivals, and other things related to the state. Whenever the cast and crew used to go out for lunch or dinner, Bobby and Urvashi used to go to a Punjabi restaurant and preferred eating typical Punjbai food.

"The Deols are true blue Punjabis. Everything about them reflects the spirit of Punjab. They looked so nice together in Apne. They are idolised in Punjab," said Urvashi.

Bobby is also impressed with Urvashi and said: "She is the most confident newcomer in Bollywood and though it's her first film, she has done an excellent job. Very few newcomers get in their debut film a role that is performance-oriented. She will definitely go far."
