Huma Qureshi

New Delhi, July 29 : Huma Qureshi,who  gifted herself a brand new Mercedes on her birthday on Saturday, said the ‘urge to prove herself in the creative field’ remains constant and failure and success are a part of everyone’s journey, and she doesn’t let them get to her head.

“I’ve learnt from my mother that goodness never fails. I also believe in the concept of karma. These have helped me both personally and professionally. I’ve tried to approach both my work and my personal equations with utmost positivity and goodness,” Huma, who turned a year older on Saturday, told IANS over an email.

After doing some short films, Huma, who hails from Delhi, came into the spotlight with Anurag Kashyap’s dark thriller “Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 2” in 2012.

From “Gangs of Wasseypur”, “Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana”, “Ek Thi Daayan”, “Dedh Ishqiya” to “Jolly LLB 2”, Huma takes up strong female characters in films. At the moment, she is seen judging the talent hunt show “India’s Best Dramebaaz” on the small screen.

The actress says she is “very happy with the choices” she has made.

“Because each of them have been lessons. Failure and success are a part of everyone’s journey. I have learnt from each mistake and cherish every success. I never let success or failure get to my head and only hope to give everything I take on my best.”

How have your ambitions changed over the time?

“I always wanted to be an actor and be known for good work, which will never change with time. The urge to prove something in the creative space is always there. It keeps me grounded. As an actor, over the years, I’ve probably got a wee bit greedy of wanting to dabble in various genres and experiment with different roles,” she said.

For her birthday, the actress took some time off and went to Armenia.

“I’ve normally worked on most of my birthdays but this year I decided to take a holiday to an exotic destination. There is so much to celebrate and I will be travelling to the picturesque Armenia with a few friends for my birthday.”

Walking down the memory lane, she said: “My childhood has been quite a normal one. My mother has always been my pillar of strength. I have fond memories that I’ll always cherish. From all the mischievous things that Saqib (Saqib Saleem) and I did as kids, to the cute hand-made birthday cards, I’ll cherish it all. My parents have always given me everything that a child needs during my growing up years.”

Huma says it is very important to have a work-life balance.

“I’m blessed to be surrounded with family and friends that I can rely on… We are each other’s support system.”

What’s keeping her busy these days?

“‘India’s Best Dramebaaz’. It is my debut TV show and what better than being part of a show based on acting. It’s a perfect debut for me. I’m in the process of signing a few interesting projects but it is too soon to talk about it at the moment.”

Mumbai: In a major development, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday said that it has summoned Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preeet Singh for questioning in a drug-related case.

A senior NCB official related to the probe told IANS, “Summons have been issued to Deepika, Sara, Shraddha and Rakul for questioning. “Besides four Bollywood actors, the NCB has also summoned fashion designer Simone Khambatta.” However, the official did not share the date when these actors have been called for questioning.

The drug law enforcement agency has also summoned Deepika’s manager Karishma Prakash for questioning. The development comes in the wake of the investigation into a drug-related case linked to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Sushant was found dead on June 14 at his Bandra flat.

The official said that the actors have been summoned after several alleged chats of them discussing drugs came to the fore during the investigation.

The NCB has registered a case on the request of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after it found alleged drug chats between Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, house manager Samuel Miranda.

Rhea, Showik, Miranda, Sushant’s personal staff Dipesh Sawant along with 16 other accused have been arrested by the NCB in the case so far.

Sara is the daughter of noted actor Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, while Shradhha is the daughter of veteran actor Shakti Kapoor. Deepika is the daughter of the badminton icon Prakash Padukone and is married to Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh.

The official, however, denied that it has issued any summons to Dia Mirza. Earlier in the day, the NCB continued questioning Sushant’s talent manager Jaya Saha for the third consecutive day.

Besides Saha, the NCB is also questioning Madhu Mantena Varma, a noted producer, who gave blockbusters such as ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Ghajini’.

According to NCB sources, Varma is being confronted with Saha over alleged chats of them discussing drugs. NCB has also questioned Sushant’s former manager Shruti Modi on a number of occassions.

Besides the NCB, the CBI and the ED are also probing the death case of Sushant.
