Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, the hinterland drama is coming out Jan 10.
"Yes, I did miss her (Vidya) in the sequel. She had done a great job in 'Ishqiya', but the sequel demanded for a different star cast," Arshad told IANS.
"And I must say I had a great fun shooting with Madhuri and Huma in the film. But yes I did miss Vidya," he added.
"Ishqiya" was an unconventional film, which presented Vidya as a small town-based scheming seductress Krishna, who has Khalujan (Naseer) and Babban (Arshad) wrapped around her finger. Despite being unconventional and being told in a rural setup, the film scored high at the box office and even wowed the critics.
However, Arshad who had locked lips Vidya in part one praises Huma too.
He said: "When I was shooting with Huma, I realised her screen presence is wonderful. She looks gorgeous on screen...I don't mean to say that she doesn't look nice off-screen, but she looks damn beautiful on screen."
