Mumbai: Fresh from the monstrous success of ‘Jolly LLB 2,’ Huma Qureshi, has a staggering variety in her films lined up to release soon. Much fitting to the versatile actress’ international debut with the historical drama, ‘Viceroy’s House,’ (known as Partition: 1947 in India) Huma has received an invitation from the Google headquarters in New York to deliver a talk on an array of subjects such as Indian actors making a mark globally, how the same history is taught differently in different countries, Indian women becoming more popular faces in western cinema and challenges a Bollywood actor faces.

Being a powerhouse performer in Indian cinema, her opinion holds great value and the Googlers, aware of her impressive repertoire of films, are looking forward to the talk which will be followed by a discussion over lunch. This is not the first time the talented actress has received such an invitation. Given her growing worldwide popularity, she was also invited by Facebook to their headquarters in London this year.

A source reveals, “Huma is honoured by this coveted invitation and is aware that the opportunity to visit the Google headquarters is a rare one. She was surprised that her work is so popular in the west. She is excited to interact with the Google employees. Having shot for Viceroy’s House, she is adeptly equipped to bring light to the different versions of history.”

​Huma says, “I’m so glad to have received an invitation from Google. I look forward to the visit to the New York headquarters and opening the discussion about such relevant issues. I never imagined my work would have such a vast reach. It is truly a privilege to interact with some of the most brilliant minds of the world’s leading company.”
