Ak­shay does not take his star­dom for granted: Huma Qureshi

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Huma Qureshi (far right) hopes to im­bibe the dis­ci­pline and hard­work from co-star Ak­shay Ku­mar (right), who she says, puts in his best while work­ing.

The two star to­gether in the upcoming film, Jolly LLB 2, and Huma says Akki works with­out any star trap­pings on the sets. “One al­ways feels that su­per­stars tend to take their suc­cess for granted, but not with him (Ak­shay). I’ve seen him work re­ally hard for our film and I’m sure he does that for each of his films,” says Huma. “He does four films in a year. I hope to im­bibe some sense of dis­ci­pline and how he man­ages to spend time with his fam­ily, chil­dren, how in­volved he is. I want to be that great a multi-tasker in that sense,” added the 30-year-old.

The court­room-dra­ma­com­edy is a se­quel to the 2013 film Jolly LLB which starred Ar­shad Warsi and Am­rita Rao in the lead roles.

Huma says that while work­ing with Ak­shay, 49, was an en­rich­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, there were times when the ac­tor played pranks on her as well. “He took my phone and mes­saged three he­roes that I love them, I want to marry them. Then I had to call ev­ery­one and say I’m re­ally sorry it was a prank. They laughed when they got to know Ak­shay had done that.”
