Huma Qureshi to do action in `D-Day`

Huma Qureshi to do action in `D-Day` Mumbai: Huma Qureshi, who made an impressive debut with Anurag Kashyap`s crime thriller ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ last year, will now be seen doing action in Nikhil Advani`s ‘D-Day’ and she is all excited about it.

"I am very excited as, for the first time, I am doing action in a film," she said at an event to launch People magazine.

"It`s sort of an action film. It`s very real but, at the same time, it`s very very slick. It is about agents going into Pakistan and getting back India`s most wanted man," she said.

While in ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’, Huma worked with stars like Manoj Bajpayee and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, in Vishal Bhardwaj`s production ‘Dedh Ishqiya’, she is working with stalwarts like Madhuri Dixit, Arshad Warsi and Naseerwuddin Shah.

‘D-Day’, releasing July 19, also features Arjun Rampal, Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan and Shruti Haasan.

Four-film-old Huma feels lucky that she is getting to work with such living legends in her films.

"I am very fortunate because I am one of the newest (actors), but I have already worked with some of the best actors we have of our time, whether it`s Manoj, Nawaszuddin or Irrfan, and then Arshad (Warsi), Naseeruddin Shah, Madhuri," she said.

"With each film I feel that my association with some solid actors of our generation is only getting stronger and stronger. I just hope that by being in films, that have such living legends as part of the cast, I only get to learn from them, by watching them and I hope I imbibe something from them," she added.

Huma was recently seen in ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ opposite Emraan Hashmi that also starred Konkona Sen Sharma and Kalki Koechlin.
