When Dinu decided to get Hum Do Humare Do on the floors from October, the veteran actress expressed her concerns and wasn’t too keen to shoot before a vaccine arrived. They amicably parted ways and Dinu who shares a warm bond with Dimple and have just worked on Angrezi Medium, plans to sign another film with her later.
