Solo leads not important to me: Huma Qureshi

Mumbai: Actress Huma Qureshi, who debuted with Anurag Kashyap`s `Gangs of Wasseypur` earlier this year and has signed her fifth film already, says she is looking for good films and performance oriented roles instead of solo leads.

"It is not important that I do a solo heroine film, for me what matters is that I should do something that audience remember me for and connect with me," Huma told reporters.

"Even if I am there in a film for a little time, it is great as far as my role is good. What is the use if I do a big film where I am the only heroine but people don`t care?"

In `Gangs of Wasseypur`, Huma shared screen space with Manoj Bajpai, Richa Chadda, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and others.

She would also star in Vishal Bhardwaj`s supernatural psychological thriller `Ek Thi Daayan` alongwith Emraan Hashmi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Kalki Koechlin.

"I am not related to someone in the film industry, it will take time to prove (myself). To do a film with an ensemble cast may be safer from an outsider`s point of view. I am choosing the best of what is offered to me. It is coincidental that I am doing these films," Huma said.

After the two-part `Gangs of Wasseypur`, Huma`s next release will be `Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana` in November.

Produced by Kashyap and also starring Kunal Kapoor, Huma plays a Punjabi girl in the film directed by Sameer Sharma. It will release on November 2.

"I play a Pujabi girl in the film, it is not a stereotypical role. We have tried to do something different. The character is very real, I am sure the girls from Punjab will relate to it," Huma said.
