Huma Qureshi, who has played powerful roles in films like “Gangs of Wasseypur” and “D-Day”, believes that she has grown as an actor.

“I believe I’ve grown as an actor because that happens with the practice and the experience. As a person, I’m a lot calmer and take every release Friday as it comes,” Huma told IANS.

She said that as an actor, it’s important to dabble in a variety of genres.

“That helps you get better with your craft. It has never been a conscious decision to gravitate towards these roles. For me, it’s the script and the filmmaker that are deciding factors,” said the actress, who has collaborated with online fashion destination KOOVS.com for the brand’s Autumn Winter 18 collection.
