Mumbai: Actress Huma Qureshi has said she was initially apprehensive about going without make-up for her role in short film `Sujata`.

`Sujata` is one of the short films from Anurag Kashyap`s collection ‘Shorts’, which is directed by Shlok Sharma.

"Shlok wanted me without make-up in the film as it is a hard-hitting story and needed that look," the actress said in a statement here.

Huma said she finally decided to go de-glam for the character she portrayed in the films and is wondering how she must be looking on screen.

Scripted by Annie Zaidi, `Sujata` is a 10-minute short film about the protagonist played by Huma, who takes on her childhood tormentor.

The film, produced by Kashyap`s AKFPL and Tumbhi.Com, a talent showcase platform, created waves at the 10th Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles.

The film is slated to be released on July 12.
