My family is conservative, but they've changed: Huma Qureshi

Mumbai, June 28 (IANS) Actress Huma Qureshi says her family is conservative when it comes to film culture, but they are changing and accepting the ways of the industry.

"My family is very conservative, but now they have changed and accept many things. They understand the choices that we make," Huma, whose family is settled in Delhi, told IANS.

The "Gangs of Wasseypur" (GOW) actress said her parents were apprehensive about sending her and her brother Saqib Saleem of "Mere Dad Ki Maruti" fame to Mumbai.

"Now, when some negative stories come out, both of us get very nervous that mum would have read the newspaper, but when she calls up, she is absolutely normal. They understand and they never question us.

"They have been very supportive. My mum says this is part of the deal and you will have to take it with a pinch of salt and you can't let it affect you," she added.

Huma was recently in the news for her alleged linkup with filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who was instrumental in launching her in Bollywood with GOW.

Commenting on this, Huma said: "I am an emotional person, but that doesn't mean everyone's opinion matters to me. There are very few people whose opinion matters to me."

"I don't want to get the best girl award. If I'd think about other people, my work will suffer. When I read some negative stories, my brother wonders when these things happened... I just tell him, let's deal with it."

Huma's brother is her best friend.

"Although he is much younger, he is far more intelligent than I am," the 26-year-old said.

"Saqib is someone very sensible and I am his bouncing board...It's great to have somebody whom you can trust. Since he is my brother, he gives me good opinions because he knows our family, where we come from. He will also think emotionally about it," she added.

After crime thriller GOW, Huma was seen in light-hearted film "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana" and supernatural thriller "Ek Thi Daayan" and is happy about not being typecast.

"I am happy that I have not been typecast because I don't want to be typecast. As actors we are scared about something new, but I am not trying to be fearful. I am trying to think what other people are not thinking. I am just doing what I want to do."

Her next is action movie "D-Day". Directed by Nikhil Advani, the film also features Rishi Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Irrfan, and Shruti Haasan.
