Huma Quereshi’s Alleged Fondness for Her Directors
During the promotions of her debut film, ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, Huma Quereshi was linked to her then director Anurag Kashyap. This time around, she has developed a sudden fondness for her director Abhishek Chaubhey. Abhishek Chaubhey is the director of ‘Dedh Ishqiya’.
Huma Quereshi is currently looking forward to the release of her next, ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ with Emraan Hashmi. The rumors surfaced when Abhishek Chaubhey attended the book launch event for the film. It can also be noted that Abhishek is the creative producer for that project.
Huma Quereshi seems to be on a roll after her debut film earned her rave reviews and critical acclaim; however, it remains to be seen whether this is a mere publicity stunt to garner attention for her next film or is it to shift focus from growing gossips on the Huma-Anurag bonding.
‘Dedh Ishqiya’ is the sequel to the 2010 hit ‘Ishqiya’ which starred Vidya Balan, Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi in the lead roles. ‘Ishqiya’ was a dark comedy set in a small town in Uttar Pradesh, and ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ also has the rustic feel of the state. However the look and the feel will be extremely different. Abhishek Chaubhey said, “I had no idea if I would ever make a sequel. I was trying to make my first film and my whole focus was on it. I had to no idea what the sequel should be about. The only reason why I am making Dedh Ishqiya is because we had a good story...it was story worth making into a film.” He went on to add, “The feel of this film is different from the first one. There will be a flavor, which will be unique and something that you haven’t experienced before.”
‘Dedh Ishqiya’ was supposed to go on the floors way back in September 2011, however, because of a few glitches, the shooting commenced in February 2012 only. The film is sixty percent complete, and just another month of work remains before the release.
This film also marks the comeback of Madhuri Dixit Nene. While Naseer and Arshad will reprise their roles, Madhuri Dixit will step into the shoes of Vidya Balan. The film also stars Huma Quereshi and Juhi Chawla, who was her co-star in ‘Gulab Gang’. Madhuri Dixit was heard saying, “It's been wonderful. I met Juhi and she is a very, very sweet person and the experience has been wonderful.”
