Huma Qureshi is presently shooting for Nikhil Advani’s film D-Day in Gujarat that has Arjun Rampal as her co-star. The newcomer, who has been busy with her projects ever since her debut flick Gangs of Wasseypur released in June, is keen to wrap up the shoot in Ahmedabad and be in Mumbai.
Reason? The promos of her brother Saqib Saleem’s upcoming film Mere Dad Ki Maruti which has him in the lead role has been released alongside Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The actress is keen to share the big moment in her brother’s life.
Says a source, “Huma is excited and wants to be around for him. Though he also featured in Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge earlier, she considers this special as he has a plum role.”
Adds the source, “Huma has been shooting non-stop ever since she did Gangs. She immediately got busy with Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana and was simultaneously shooting for D-Day as well as for Vishal Bhardwaj’s Ek Thi Daayan. As soon as she wraps up her Gujarat outdoor she begins shooting for Vishal’s film again.”
The busy sister is hopeful that by next month she will be free in time when her brother starts the promotions for his film.
