Qureshi in one sentence: Huma is a gorgeous Indian woman who is one of the greatest Bollywood actresses of all times.
I’m pretty spontaneous, I like to play things by ear. I’m not a studied performer.
As an actor it’s important that I do everything. I’m not here to be the torchbearer of any particular type of cinema.
Acting is the most risky profession. I’m exposing myself to thousands of people who can like me or hate me
You can win an Oscar but you have to have people to share it with.
I wish I could make an interesting combination out of many guys!
It is ok not to be perfect. Today, I realize the importance of being comfortable in my skin.
We shouldn’t try to create Barbie doll clones, but beautiful, independent-thinking women who have individual voices.
Acting is a very taxing profession.
I’m a bit of a rebel.
Health is the most wondering gift from God.
I would love to work with David Fincher and (Martin) Scorcese.
I always wanted to be an actress, and I never gave up; I was determined to work, be it for TV or theatre or ad commercials or short films.
Just smile, it always works.
The invasion of my privacy can be bothersome at times. But it’s all worth it!
I am not someone who sits and laments over things.
