Huma Qureshi began her acting career on stage. She worked under the tutelage of theatre veteran NK Sharma, who runs a popular theatre group in Delhi. A source close to Huma says she considers Sharma her lucky mascot. She apparently consults him before signing every film.

“Huma takes his advice before making any work-related decisions. He has been instrumental in shaping her acting career. Huma has recently received two movie offers. She wants to discuss the scripts with Sharma before deciding anything,” says the source.
