Actor Huma Qureshi has revealed that she may have turned fashionable in recent times, but she used to be a book lover during her school and college days and never followed trends.

“I love books. In fact, I was a geek in college and school. I became an actor by mistake,” says the 28-year-old. “Now I have become fashionable, but initially I used to wear my dad’s shirts. In my home in Delhi, I still have more books than clothes,” she adds. 

Huma says she has a special fascination for biographies and seeks inspiration from them. “Lots of books inspire me, especially autobiographies and biographies... whether it’s an athlete’s or an actor’s or an industrialist’s. If you read an autobiography you will find somewhere all stories are the same,” she says, adding, “They are all human beings no matter which background or ethnicity they belong to.”
