Ac­tor Huma Qureshi (above) has had quite a busy year so far. It be­gan with the Ak­shay Ku­marstar­rer Jolly LLB 2, which did well at the box-of­fice. Af­ter which, she got busy pro­mot­ing her de­but Hol­ly­wood film at in­ter­na­tional film fes­ti­vals in Lon­don. Cur­rently, the ac­tor is look­ing for­ward to the re­lease of the film in In­dia.

On her birth­day to­day, asked if there are any spe­cial plans in store, she says, “Well, since I am busy shoot­ing here and there, and I have been re­ally busy trav­el­ling too, so it will be a very low key af­fair this year, with just fam­ily [in Mum­bai only].”Be­sides pro­mot­ing her in­ter­na­tional project across In­dia, Huma is also busy with the shoot­ing of her Tamil film Kaala Karikalan (in Chen­nai) where she’s paired op­po­site su­per­star Ra­jinikanth.

While all birth­days have been spe­cial for Huma, she shares that the most cher­ished was the one when her brother, ac­tor Saqib Saleem did some­thing spe­cial for her in their child­hood days. “Saqib gave me a hand­made card, where he had pasted a pic­ture of the whole fam­ily to­gether and wished me happy birth­day. For me, it was the cutest thing ever,” re­calls Huma, adding, “I’m al­ways up for sur­prises.”

About the best birth­day present she has got till date, she says, “Oh yes, my best birth­day gift was when my dad gifted me my first car in col­lege. I thought that was the coolest thing ever. It was so much fun, as I could com­pletely show it off to my friends that I have my own car now and not my dad’s car.”
