Actress Huma Qureshi who made her film debut with a supporting role in the two-part crime drama Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) says she never dreamt about working with the popular Khans of Bollywood. For the actress being part of one film mattered the most.
Huma’s performance in the film Gangs of Wasseypur earned her quite a few nominations, that includes Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut and the Best Supporting Actress
Huma while conversing with her first casting director Mukesh Chhabra on “Chhabra ka Dabra”, on Tata Sky Acting Adda, a show on which Bollywood celebrities narrates their journey said, “It honestly did not matter who I worked with when I arrived in Bombay. I just wanted to be a part of one film, anyone film would do for me," when she was asked if she has dreamt of working with the Khans of Bollywood.
The ‘Badlapur” actress recalled how she was advised to first get into good commercials to get noticed by film directors.
And apparently following the bits of advice, Huma got to act in television advertisements alongside stars like Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and many other celebrated stars of the film industry. She reminisced how her first time on the set left her perplexed.
However, she thanked her experience as a stage actor, that immensely helped her in getting confidence while performing and even got noticed for her debut film “Gangs of Wasseypur”, that gave her name and fame.
