Since her debut in Bollywood,

Huma Qureshi

has often drawn flak for being overweight, strictly by


standards. But now, it looks like the actor has decided to lose the extra kilos.

We have come to know that Huma is working towards acquiring a leaner frame for her next film in which she stars opposite Varun Dhawan. The project, which will be directed by Sriram Raghavan, will go on the floors in a couple of months.

"Her character requires her to look slimmer. She might lose up to four-five kilos," says an insider.

Apparently, Huma will also have some love-making scenes with Varun. "Huma has read the entire script and knows about the love scenes. And since they are essential to the film, she has said yes to them. She has been assured that since it’s Sriram’s film, the sequences will be shot aesthetically," adds the insider.

Interestingly, the film will also bring Huma together with her Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012) co-star, Nawazuddin Siddiqui. We tried to reach Huma but she texted us saying she was busy in a narration.
