I don’t feel like an outsider: Huma Qureshi
Actor Huma Qureshi, who made her Bollywood debut with Gangs Of Wasseypur this year and followed up with an equally likable role in Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, says she no more feels like an outsider in the industry. “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,” says Huma, who started her career as a model and featured in TV commercials such as Saffola Oil, Pears Soap and Nerolac.'
Talking about her career in movies, she says, “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.” Huma adds, “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.”
When it comes to looks, Huma is different from the typical Bollywood actor and she says she doesn’t mind that. “I agree that I am different from others. I am not trying to fit in someone else’s shoes. I am being honest to myself. The audience is loving me the way I am and that’s most important,” she says.
