Huma Qureshi says that as an actress she sometimes overthinks and overanalyses things. However, she feels that she is “growing wiser” with time.
“Time has taught me to be cool. As an actress, sometimes we over-worry and overanalyse conditions. We overthink like this because I think we are attuned to be thinking like that. But I think I’m growing older and wiser with time,” Huma said.
“I think life has its own way of telling things… Sometimes things that you have not even imagined or thought of will happen automatically without even thinking so much,” she added.
The actress, who received critical acclaim for her roles in films like “Gangs of Wasseypur”, “Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana”, “Dedh Ishqiya” and “Badlapur”, says that being an actress is one tough task, unlike the common perception that people have.
“People usually feel that being an actress is easy and glamorous, but it’s not. There is a lot of hard work required. There are times when you have no time left or no personal life left and everyone wants to know everything about you. It’s like being actress Huma Qureshi all the time.”
Huma is starring in Gurinder Chadha’s “Viceroy’s House”. The film is set in the 1940s and it will also have a love story.
“The film is very important. It’s based in 1947 and it’s about the partition of India and how it happened. What drew me to this film is the fact that it talks about love. I feel that love is more important than any division that man has created,” she said.
