After just doing two films, Huma Qureshi is being really appreciated in the film industry. That’s not it, the actress has been getting some wonderful offers too. Huma now, doesn’t feel that she’s an outsider to the industry anymore.
Huma Qureshi said: “I don’t feel I am an outsider. I was already shooting for other films even before the release of my first film ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ (GOW). While shooting for GOW, I was simultaneously shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Ek Thi Daayan’, and while shooting for ‘Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana’, I was shooting for Nikhil Advani’s ‘D Day’.”
She started out her career as a model and featured in a lot of TV commercials. In fact, she was picked for GOW when she did a commercial for Anurag Kashyap.
Talking about movies, she said: “It’s an exciting new phase. Both parts of my first film received critical acclaim, ‘Luv Shuv…’ was also appreciated by many. I hope it continues to be like this.”
Her next two projects are “Ek Thi Daayan” and “D Day”, which still have to hit the screens.
She considers herself lucky to have bagged films with established filmmakers.
The 26 year old said: “I am blessed to have got a chance to work with directors like Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bhardwaj and Nikhil Advani at such an early age. Moreover, good scripts have been coming my way so I am really excited about it.”
“I have tried to be different in each of my films – be it ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ or ‘Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana’. My roles in other two films are also different. I can’t put myself in a box and be an actor,” she added.
Talking about her looks, Huma is different from the othe Bollywood actresses and she says she doesn’t want to look like any of them.
“I agree that I am different from others. I am not trying to fit in someone else shoes. I am being honest to myself. The audience is loving me the way I am and that’s most important for me,” she said.
