Actress Huma Qureshi has revealed that she may have turned fashionable nowadays, but she used to be a book lover during her school and college days and never worried about following trends.

"I love books. In fact, I was a geek in college and school. I became an actress by mistake," the 27-year-old told reporters Tuesday at the launch of debutante author Vibhor Tikiya's book "Dada".

"Now I have become fashionable, but initially I used to wear my dad's shirts. In Delhi, I still have more books than clothes," added the "Gangs Of Wasseypur" actress.

Huma has a special fascination for biographies and seeks inspiration from them.

"Lots of books inspire me, especially autobiographies and biographies... whether it's an athlete's or an actor's or an industrialist's. If you read an autobiography you will find somewhere all stories are the same," Huma said.

"They are all human beings no matter which background or ethnicity they belong to. They somehow seem to have the same problems and demons they have to fight with," she added.

Huma is currently shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's production venture "Dedh Ishqiya". Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, it stars Madhuri Dixit in the lead role.
