‘It’s Important That My Audience Connects With Me’
Actress Huma Qureshi, who made her debut with Anurag Kashyap’s two-part revenge drama ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, says it is purely coincidental that all her films are multi-starrers.
In her debut film ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, Huma shared screen space with Manoj Bajpai, Richa Chadda, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and others.
She would be seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s supernatural psychological thriller ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ with Emraan Hashmi, Konkona Sen Sharma, Kalki Koechlin and in Nikhil Advani’s action adventure.
“I am not related to someone in the film industry, it takes time to prove. To do a film with an ensemble cast may be safer from an outsider’s point of view. I am choosing the best of what is offered to me. It is coincidental that I am doing these films,” Huma told .
For Huma, a role is more important than doing solo film projects.
“It is not important that I do a solo heroine film, for me what matters is that I should do something that audience remember me for, connect with me,” she said.
“Even if I am there in a film for little time, it is great as far as my role is good. What is the use if I do a big film, where I am the only heroine but people don’t care,” she added.
After the two-part ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, Huma’s next release will be ‘Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana’ in November while Vishal Bhardwaj and Nikhil Advani’s films would release next year.
“I am humbled and grateful that filmmakers are choosing me for their films,” Huma said.
