Huma Qureshi doesn`t feel like outsider in filmdom
New Delhi: Huma Qureshi`s first two films were appreciated and she is getting good offers too. Contented with her career, the actress doesn`t see herself as an outsider in the film industry.
"I don`t feel I am an outsider. I was already shooting for other films even before the release of my first film `Gangs of Wasseypur` (GOW). While shooting for GOW, I was simultaneously shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj`s `Ek Thi Daayan`, and while shooting for `Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana`, I was shooting for Nikhil Advani`s `D Day`," Huma, who is from Delhi, told IANS.
She started as a model and featured in TV commercials like Vita Marie, Saffola Oil, Mederma Cream, Pears Soap and Nerolac.
Talking about movies, she said: "It`s an exciting new phase. Both parts of my first film received critical acclaim, `Luv Shuv...` was also appreciated by many. I hope it continues to be like this."
"Ek Thi Daayan" and "D Day" haven`t come out yet.
She considers herself lucky to have bagged films with established filmmakers.
"I am blessed to have got a chance to work with directors like Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bhardwaj and Nikhil Advani at such an early age. Moreover, good scripts have been coming my way so I am really excited about it," said the 26-year-old who doesn`t want to restrict herself to doing a certain kind of role.
"I have tried to be different in each of my films - be it `Gangs of Wasseypur` or `Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana`. My roles in other two films are also different. I can`t put myself in a box and be an actor," she said.
When it comes to looks, Huma is different from the typical Bollywood actresses and she says she isn`t trying to fit in anyone`s shoes.
"I agree that I am different from others. I am not trying to fit in someone else shoes. I am being honest to myself. The audience is loving me the way I am and that`s most important for me," she added.
