When you get an offer from Sanjay Leela Bhansali for even a small role in his film you can’t just ignore it and it looks like Huma Qureshi is the latest to join the list. Perhaps hoping to grab a big break, Huma has reportedly said yes to perform in a special dance number in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming directorial ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’.
This will surely be a huge opportunity for the actress. Now, it will be interesting to see whether it helps Huma to bag more important roles in the near future. Interestingly, Priyanka Chopra Jonas didn’t even hesitate to say yes to Bhansali for a dance number in the 2013 film ‘Ram Leela’ and she just set the dance floor on fire with her superb dancing skills in that film.
According to reports, Sanjay was looking for a dancer who could also emote to the evocative lyrics as it won’t be a Mujra song. The song in which Huma is likely to perform is an earthier item number. However, Huma’s dancing skills aren’t extraordinary to set the screen on fire. But, when it’s Bhansali around, you can expect magic in anything.
‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ which sees Alia Bhatt in the titular role is based on a real-life story of a brothel owner of the same name. The film was supposed to release on September 11 this year but the release got postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
