New Delhi: Huma Qureshi, whose stories of dating married director Anurag Kashyap have been doing the rounds, has stepped forward and clarified that nothing of the sort is going on between the two.
“No, I am not dating him and I am not going to let these stories affect my relationship with him or Kalki. My parents are fond of him and I won`t stop hanging out with him or stop going to his office because of these stories. Is a married couple not allowed to be friends with a single girl? It`s strange that these stories are coming in the last two months,” Huma told a leading daily.
“It`s a convenient way of bringing me down given that I am doing a number of roles. And yes, I`d like to date someone, but unfortunately I am not dating anyone at the moment. The only person in all of this who gets hurt is me as the implication is that my achievement so far is not because of my hard work or my talent but because I am having an affair with my director,” she said.
“Vishal Bhardwaj, Ekta Kapoor, Kannan Iyer, Abhishek Chaubey and Sameer Sharma have not cast me in their films because I am having an affair. By asking this, you are questioning not just my credibility, but also theirs,” she added.
The 26-year-old actress – who is known for her unconventional roles – made her Bollywood debut in 2013 with ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’.
