Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Even though ac­tor Huma Qureshi (right) finds rumours un­pleas­ant, she doesn’t let it get to her. For Huma, re­la­tion­ship with her fans is more im­por­tant.

The ac­tor was ini­tially linked with film­maker Anurag Kashyap, who di­rected her de­but, Gangs of Wassey­pur (2012). When asked how she deals with rumours, the ac­tor said, “My fam­ily knows what the truth is. I don't let it bother me too much. I al­ways feel that your re­la­tion­ship with your fans is the most im­por­tant.”

Lately, Huma been linked to ac­tor So­hail Khan, some­one who she says is like a brother to her. “When­ever some­thing like this comes up, which is un­pleas­ant and ugly, I just go to so­cial me­dia and I re­spond to it. Get­ting linked up to some­body who you con­sider your brother is a bit much, I feel. It's re­ally sad.”

She added, “I have al­ways re­sponded to all these things on so­cial me­dia. That's how I would like to do it.”

The 30-year-old ac­tor will now be seen in the se­quel to the 2013 film Jolly LLB, op­po­site ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar, di­rected by Sub­hash Kapoor. The first film starred Ar­shad Warsi in the lead.

Huma says when Kapoor nar­rated the film, she was in­stantly on board as she liked the script. She is glad that the film stars Ak­shay, who will en­sure that she gets to tap the huge fan base.

“My big­gest hit so far has been Bad­la­pur (2015) but the kind of ap­pre­ci­a­tion and the fan base one will get, be­cause you work with Ak­shay, will be huge.”
