Huma Qureshi made her Bollywood debut in Gangs Of Wasseypur. Actress Huma Qureshi says she was given a choice between an action role and an emotional one in her upcoming flick D-Day and she chose the one involving stunts.

The film is directed by Nikhil Advani. "Nikhil gave me a choice and said one is going to be an emotional role and the other one is an action part. I said, of course, I want to do the action part," said Huma. 

"I am really thankful that he thought I could do it. If you get a choice (of a role), anybody would feel good about it," he added.  Huma, seen in films such as Gangs Of Wasseypur, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana and Ek Thi Daayan, said it was fun to be training under Hollywood stunt experts Tom Struthers and John Street of Inception and The Dark Knight Rises fame. 

"I didn't know anything. Then I learnt how to hold a gun, hand-to-hand combat, the jumps... the whole process of doing action together was fun," she said. 

D-Day also features Rishi Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Irrfan and Shruti Haasan.
