Mumbai: There is no doubt that Huma Qureshi is a powerhouse performer and for her big Hollywood debut in 'Viceroy's House' the actress has taken a massive challenge of not only getting under the skin of her character but also closely studying the lady in person, Jaya Thadani, who has served as an inspiration for her character in the film.
Before shooting the film, Huma went to meet Jaya in London, who was actually an interpreter during the British rule. Filmmaker Gurinder Chadha had set up their meeting so that both the ladies get enough time to interact with each other and continue to stay in touch.
And it’s obvious that Huma wanted Jaya to be among the first few people to watch the film before its official release. The actress will soon be organizing a special screening for her in London.
"Huma is soon to make her big Hollywood debut with Viceroy's House and was grateful to everyone who has been part of this journey. Huma met Jaya Thadani in London to learn how she speaks and hear her stories and absorb how she lived her life during that time. After spending a day together, the two grew close. Huma will soon be organizing a screening in London as she is really excited to have Jaya's feedback on her performance and the film."
'Viceroy's House' is an official selection by a great film festival, Berlinale 2017 and will have its worldwide premiere at the festival. Huma will join Gurinder and rest of the cast of the film in Berlin, immediately after wrapping up promotions of her upcoming film 'Jolly LLB 2'....
