Though she does films few and far in between, the Ek Thi Dayan hottie has proved time and again that being a good actor is more important than being a star
It was in Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur, when a tall, voluptuous damsel who goes by the name Huma Qureshi, was first introduced to Bollywood. Though she had given a fine performance, she never got the due credit thanks to the stellar star cast of Gangs of Wasseypur. Later she went on to do films like D-Day, Ek Thi Dayan, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana and Dedh Ishqiya, but for some odd reason, she never rose to limelight despite showing promise in each of her roles.
Here again, in Varun Dhawan's Badlapur, Huma has played the roles of a prostitute and middle aged mistress with great conviction. But sadly, in the past, she has been targeted for her weight issues as Bollywood is some what cruel to full bodied woman. Huma also comes off as an unconventional actress, different from the likes of her contemporaries like Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra, who carefully screens for best scripts and challenging roles. Unlike the actresses indulging in mad number games as to who is a bigger star, the choice of films which Huma does is a sign of an actress who wants to perform and not just be there like a mere eye candy.
With Badlapur, Huma has proved once again that she is a gem of an actress and deserves credit and appreciation, which she rarely gets. Also it's high time, the hottie does more films, so that the people can actually talk about her acting talent rather than her weight issues.
