'No need to be size zero'

'No need to be size zero'

Newbie Huma Qureshi, who is all set to debut in Bollywood with Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, says one does not have to be size zero to connect with the audience.

“I think you don’t have to be size zero to prove yourself, to connect with the audience. The audience should enjoy the film. And if you can provide that enjoyment with the way you are then nothing like it,” said Huma. “In fact, I am paired opposite someone who is very tiny, Nawaz is a little short and tiny – he is size zero,” she said.

She says these days film-makers like Anurag Kashyap have a different thinking and are not obsessed with weight issues. “I remember during an ad shoot Anurag said to me that you are doing my film, and I was wondering do we really get films so easily. I thought you have to struggle and all. But he kept his word and offered me ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’. All this is like a boon,” she said.
