actress huma qureshiHuma Qureshi's first two films were appreciated and she is getting good offers too. Contented with her career, the actress doesn't see herself as an outsider in the film industry.

"I don't feel I am an outsider. I was already shooting for other films even before the release of my first film 'Gangs of Wasseypur' (GOW). While shooting for GOW, I was simultaneously shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Ek Thi Daayan', and while shooting for 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana', I was shooting for Nikhil Advani's 'D Day'," Huma, who is from Delhi, told IANS.

She started as a model and featured in TV commercials like Vita Marie, Saffola Oil, Mederma Cream, Pears Soap and Nerolac.

Talking about movies, she said: "It's an exciting new phase. Both parts of my first film received critical acclaim, 'Luv Shuv...' was also appreciated by many. I hope it continues to be like this."

"Ek Thi Daayan" and "D Day" haven't come out yet.

She considers herself lucky to have bagged films with established filmmakers.

"I am blessed to have got a chance to work with directors like Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bhardwaj and Nikhil Advani at such an early age. Moreover, good scripts have been coming my way so I am really excited about it," said the 26-year-old who doesn't want to restrict herself to doing a certain kind of role.

"I have tried to be different in each of my films - be it 'Gangs of Wasseypur' or 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana'. My roles in other two films are also different. I can't put myself in a box and be an actor," she said.

When it comes to looks, Huma is different from the typical Bollywood actresses and she says she isn't trying to fit in anyone's shoes.

"I agree that I am different from others. I am not trying to fit in someone else shoes. I am being honest to myself. The audience is loving me the way I am and that's most important for me," she added.
