Huma Qureshi says failure and success are a part of everyone’s journey, and she doesn’t let them get to her head. “I’ve learnt from my mother that goodness never fails. I also believe in the concept of karma. These have helped me both personally and professionally. I’ve tried to approach both my work and my personal equations with utmost positivity and goodness,” Huma, who turned a year older on Saturday, said.
After doing some short films, Huma, who hails from Delhi, came into the spotlight with Anurag Kashyap’s dark thriller “Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 2” in 2012. From “Gangs of Wasseypur”, “Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana”, “Ek Thi Daayan”, “Dedh Ishqiya” to “Jolly LLB 2”, Huma takes up strong female characters in films. At the moment, she is seen judging the talent hunt show “India’s Best Dramebaaz” on the small screen.
The actress says she is “very happy with the choices” she has made. “Because each of them have been lessons. Failure and success are a part of everyone’s journey. I have learnt from each mistake and cherish every success. I never let success or failure get to my head and only hope to give everything I take on my best,” Huma said.
And how have her ambitions changed over the time? “I always wanted to be an actor and be known for good work, which will never change with time. The urge to prove something in the creative space is always there. It keeps me grounded. As an actor, over the years, I’ve probably got a wee bit greedy of wanting to dabble in various genres and experiment with different roles,” she said.
What’s keeping her busy these days? “‘India’s Best Dramebaaz’. It is my debut TV show and what better than being part of a show based on acting. It’s a perfect debut for me. I’m in the process of signing a few interesting projects but it is too soon to talk about it at the moment.”
