I was really fortunate: Huma Qureshi


By Hindustan Times

Huma Qureshi made her acting debut with Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs Of Wasseypur (GOW). The film was well-received, and the actor now confirms that she’s signed a three-film contract with Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Productions, though the projects are yet to take off.

“It hasn’t been decided what genre of films they will be yet, but I am happy that Balaji thinks I am talented enough to work on three films. There wasn’t any struggle for work, and I was really fortunate,” says Huma, who is also playing the lead role opposite actor Emraan Hashmi in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Ek Thi Dayaan, co-produced by Ekta Kapoor.

The actor has also been roped in for filmmaker Nikhil Advani’s next film, titled D-Day, which is supposed to start towards the later part of the year. There, Huma will be seen doing some high-voltage action.

“When Nikhil first spoke to me about the action film, I jumped at the opportunity. I will train for actual combat scenes,” admits Huma, who has finished shooting Anurag’s first family entertainment film, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, where she is paired with actor Kunal Kapoor.

The actor insists that she has no reason to complain as she has had a massive opening in Bollywood. “I was really excited to see the response to part one (of GOW) and am looking forward to part two (releasing August 8). I have two debut films. I don’t think anyone in the world can claim to that,” says Huma.
