Ac­tor Huma Qureshi (right), who is orig­i­nally from Delhi, says that she ma­tured as a per­son once she moved to Mum­bai in 2008. The 29-year-old says that she led a very guarded life when she was in Delhi and is grate­ful for the ex­pe­ri­ences that she has had once she moved out.

“Mov­ing out of home re­ally helped me grow. Be­fore I moved to Mum­bai, my life was only within five kilo­me­ter ra­dius. I used to stay close to my col­lege and was chap­er­oned ev­ery­where I went,” she says, adding, “Mum­bai is cos­mopoli­tan. It helped me make such good friends. I met peo­ple from all over the coun­try.”

Mean­while, the ac­tor, who will be seen on­screen along­side her brother Saqib Saleem, jokes that she will not be spend­ing any time with him off screen. “We have de­cided that when we are not shoot­ing, we will be­have like we don’t know each other. Nor­mally you want to hang out with your co-stars and get to know them bet­ter, but we know each other enough. I don’t want to hang out with him at all,” she says.

Huma, who stays with Saqib in Mum­bai, says that they al­ways end up go­ing out to­gether. We share an apart­ment and I think we spend enough time. But there are days when we are busy and miss each other. We have the same bunch of friends so in­vari­ably, we end up be­ing to­gether,” she says.

She is sure that shoot­ing with her brother will be fun. “There will be some mad­ness I am sure. We pull each other’s leg even on the set. It will be a riot,” she says.
