I’m in­se­cure as a per­son, not as an ac­tor: Huma

Her choice of roles may por­tray her as a bold, con­fi­dent per­son, but ac­tor Huma Qureshi says that she has many inse­cu­ri­ties. “There are many things that I don’t like about my­self. Like, I feel that I don’t have good teeth. But this does not af­fect how I am pub­licly,” says Huma, who has done films such as Gangs of Wassey­pur (2011), Dedh Ishqiya (2014) and Bad­la­pur.

The 28-year-old en­sures that none of her per­sonal con­cerns af­fect her act­ing. “I’m in­se­cure as a per­son, not as an ac­tor,” says Huma, who is sat­is­fied with her ca­reer graph. “When I look at my growth, I re­mem­ber that I came here (to Bol­ly­wood) with noth­ing. I’ve got a lot of love and ap­pre­ci­a­tion. I also feel blessed to have a fam­ily that sup­ports me. I think of this when­ever I feel low,” she adds.

The ac­tor is proud of who she is and doesn’t try to fit in, es­pe­cially when it comes to fash­ion. “Be­ing a public fig­ure does not mean that you need to fit into some­one’s stan­dard of fash­ion. I have been loved for who I am. You might con­sider it to be a flaw or an as­set that no one can de­fine. All I know is that I’m bet­ter off be­ing that than be­ing some­one else,” says Huma.
