The director casted Huma in his two-part revenge drama Gangs of Wasseypur, which did good business at the Box Office. "There are two people in my life to whom I can attribute my success, one is Anurag Kashyap and second one is NK Sharma, Delhi-based theatre director. I thank them deeply, they have been mentors, friends, who have nurtured me in their own way," Huma told PTI.
"One nurtured me when I was doing theatre and other helped me a lot with my first film. I feel glad... Had Gangs of Wasseypur not happened, I wouldn't be doing other movies," she said.
It was reported that it was due to Kashyap's suggestion that the makers signed Huma for Nikhil Advani's upcoming film D Day. Recently, some reports linked Huma's name with Anurag. Huma says she is tired of reports linking her up with the director.
"I do not care about all these things. I laugh at these reports," she said. The actress will next be seen in Vishal Bharadwaj's home production Dedh Ishqiya. "It is a beautiful script. It is a lovely film. I was a fan of Ishqiya. I never thought or dreamt that I will do the second part of the film. We are in the middle of the shoot, it is going pretty well," Huma said.
