Huma Qureshi, who played the lover of superstar Rajinikanth in ‘Kaala’, is said to be roped in for a key role in Ajith’s upcoming flick ‘Valimai’ directed by H Vinoth and produced by Boney Kapoor.
Interestingly, Huma was supposed to make her debut in the industry with ‘Billa II’, which also starred Ajith, but could not do it due to some ‘unavoidable circumstances’ at that time.
Even as sources said that she has signed on the dotted line for ‘Valimai’ , she dropped a hint about it on her social media page and posted: “Really wanted to be part of the #UmangPoliceShow tonight but had to be in Chennai for a shoot . I salute the @MumbaiPolice 🏻🏻.”
Huma Qureshi made her film debut with a supporting role in the two-part crime drama ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ (2012). Her performance in the film earned her several nominations, including the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut and the Best Supporting Actress.
That same year, she played the lead female role in the romance ‘Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana’, and followed it with a role in ‘Ek Thi Daayan’. She portrayed protagonists in the anthological ‘Shorts’ (2013), the black comedy ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ (2014), the revenge drama ‘Badlapur’ (2015), the Marathi road drama ‘Highway’ (2015) and featured briefly in the collaborative film ‘X: Past Is Present’ (2015).
