Huma Qureshi’s Career

It wasn’t until the year 2008 that she moved to Mumbai to venture out on her own with dreams to get in the movie business. But all in vain as the Movie “Junction” that she came to Mumbai for was never made. However, Huma got a two-year contract with Hindustan Unilever to appear in Television commercials; under which she promoted a wide range of products.

The deal along with Hindustan Unilever also introduced her to stars like Shahrukh Khan and Amir Khan. However, it was her acting ability which she showed during the shooting for Samsung Mobile commercial that impressed Bollywood’s famous director Anurag Kashyap; through which she signed a three movie deal.

Career in Bollywood

Initially, Qureshi was planned to make her entry in the Bollywood industry through her film debut “Billa II”. The movie was delayed which led her to back off as she had other works scheduled. However, with Anurag Kashyap’s deal for a three movie; Qureshi debuted her career in Bollywood through “Gangs Of Wasseypur- Part1”. The movie was an immense success and her role and acting were also well appreciated by many. The sequel of the movie “Gangs Of Wasseypur- Part2” was soon released in 2014 with Qureshi securing her role from the prequel.

After two initial consecutive successful movies in her career, her third movie was “Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana“. The movie was financially successful but however, it was not as successful as her previous movies.
