Want to do variety of roles: Huma Qureshi

6 years ago

She is just one film old in the industry but actress Huma Qureshi says she is focused about the kind of work she wants to do.

Huma came into limelight with Anurag Kashyap's "Gangs Of Wasseypur" and she has already completed her second film "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana" and has signed her third project- Vishal Bhardwaj's "Ek Thi Daayan".

"I am not that important or big an actress to do movies to change my image but I am making the best of what is being offered to me. I want to pick interesting characters. I don't want to do the same thing again and again and be known as boring," Huma told PTI.

Her next "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana", an Anurag Kashyap production, sees Huma play a Punjabi girl. She stars alongside Kunal Kapoor in the movie, which will hit the theatres on November 2.

"It is a fun movie. I play a Punjabi girl who is a doctor. It is a romantic comedy and I enjoyed shooting for the movie. I am glad I am getting opportunities to do different movies."

Huma says life has definitely changed post "Gangs of Wasseypur" and she gets excited when people recognize her and ask for autographs.

"Things have changed after coming into the limelight. From the outside of it they have, I have to behave more like a lady and can't be the old rowdy Gargi girl I was. I feel very happy and excited when people recognise me on the streets and ask for autographs. It feels good when efforts pay off," she said.

Though she is happy with the fame and glamour, Huma admits that it is a difficult profession to stay in, especially for her as she comes from a non filmy background.

"It is a difficult proffesion. Yes the glamour and lifestyle is a part of it but it is not an easy place to be in. Acting as a profession is such a competitive field. You will always have someone prettier than you, better actor than you coming. It involves a lot of insecurities." PTI
