‘Jolly LLB 2’ actress Huma Qureshi is making her Hollywood debut with Gurinder Chaddha’s ‘Viceroy’s House’. Starring Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson and Manish Dayal, the film was an official selection at 67th Berlin International Film Festival and had its worldwide premiere in Berlin.
Huma, who joined Gurinder and rest of the cast of the film at the festival, after wrapping up promotions of her latest release ‘Jolly LLB 2’, wore an off shoulder black and white gown at the festival red carpet.
Huma plays the role of Aalia, a Muslim interpreter to the last Viceroy of India played by Hugh Bonneville and his wife played by Gillian Anderson. She is romantically involved with the ‘The Hundred-foot Journey’ star Manish Dayal, in the movie, as the two find themselves caught up in the seismic end of the Empire.
Talking about Huma’s role Gurinder says, “Huma had to ditch her Mumbaiya accent and get into the prim and proper British one”.
