After playing an ‘airhead’ in Gangs of Wasseypur, actor Huma Qureshi will be seen as a doctor in the forthcoming film, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (LSTCK). She says the audience would be able to connect with the small-town girl.
“I am playing a doctor in the film, her name is Harman. She is from Punjab... from a very small-time place over there. She is very real, earthy, and a normal girl. If you go to the interiors of Punjab, you’ll find a lot of girls like her,” she said. “A lot of girls would be able to relate to Harman. My character in my last film (Gangs of Wasseypur) was a bit air-headed but Harman is very real,” the 26-year-old said.
Talking about her co-star Kunal Kapoor in LSTCK, Huma said, “He is always involved in the script and the scene level.” She added that Kunal thinks no matter how much one works on a scene, “it's not enough”. “He used to keep coming up to me and say, ‘let’s rehearse these lines. He has been in the industry for a while, but he is still so dedicated and involved,” she added.
Directed by Sameer Sharma, “Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana” revolves around an important family chicken recipe. The film hits theatres November 2.
