Mumbai: Actress Huma Qureshi today said that she owes her success to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who launched her in `Gangs of Wasseypur` and later cast her in his home production `Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurrana`.
The director cast Huma in his two-part revenge drama `Gangs of Wasseypur`, which did good business at the box office.
\"There are two people in my life to whom I can attribute my success ? one is Anurag Kashyap and second one is N K Sharma, Delhi-based theatre director. I thank them deeply, they have been mentors, friends, who have nurtured me in their own way," Huma told reporters.
"One nurtured me when I was doing theatre and other helped me a lot with my first film. I feel glad... Had `Gangs of Wasseypur` not happened, I wouldn`t be doing other movies," she said.
It was reported that it was due to Kashyap`s suggestion that the makers signed Huma for Nikhil Advani`s upcoming film `D Day`.
Recently, some reports linked Huma`s name with Anurag.
Huma says she is tired of reports linking her up with the director. "I do not care about all these things. I laugh at these reports," she said.
The actress will next be seen in Vishal Bharadwaj`s home production `Dedh Ishqiya`. "It is a beautiful script. It is a lovely film. I was a fan of `Ishqiya`. I never thought or dreamt that I will do the second part of the film. We are in the middle of the shoot, it is going pretty well," Huma said.
