The brother-sister duo is working together in a Bollywood movie for the first time in the Prawaal Raman-directed movie.
The yet-untitled movie, like the original, focuses on the story of a brother-sister, who get separated at a young age due to an antique mirror.
"I am very excited for 'Oculus' because it is the first time Huma and I will be working together. We keep talking about the movie all the time, have similar likings and finally we are coming together. Our relationship, however, is not a typical one in the film.
"We share an awkward sibling relationship, totally different from how we are in real life. In the film our characters detest each other, even though there is a lot of love between the two. The relationship is intense and
aggressive," Saqib said.
The 26-year-old "Mere Dad Ki Maruti" star will play the younger sibling, who is sent to a juvenile home and spends 12 years there.

"I play the role of a guy who spends years in a juvenile home, as a loner with no access to the outside world."So, I want to be locked up inside my home and just go for workshops and prepare for the character because I want to explore the other side of life, which is different from what I lead in Mumbai," he said.
The film's shoot will begin this May with London as the primary location.
