Shabana Azmi Invited for 'Hum Tum Shabana'

For all you Shabanas, you have yet another reason to thank your parents for naming you that. Team Hum Tum Shabana' is offering free movie tickets to anyone whose name is Shabana.

And if you ever wondered whether the film's title has anything to do with Shabana Azmi... we would be glad to inform you that you are absolutely right!

The female lead of the film Minissha Lamba is a great admirer of the veteran actress and it was she who requested director Sagar Ballary to name her character Shabana.

Minissha says, "When I heard the script I requested my director if I can call my character Shabana as I wanted to dedicate a character of mine to an actress whom I hugely admire and Sagar agreed, In fact, he loved the idea and before I knew it ended up becoming the title of the film..."

This laughter riot starring Tusshar Kapoor, Minnisha Lamba and Shreyas Talpade, is slated to release on September 30, 2011.

We, bet being Shabana can't get cooler than this.
