Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi, who is sharing screen space with Madhuri Dixit in Dedh Ishqiya, says the film is different from the original Ishqiya. She is confident that viewers will enjoy the comedy-thriller.
“This film has nothing to do with Ishqiya, it’s altogether a different story. My character is very interesting. Ishqiya was intense, Dedh Ishqiya is fun and I am sure everyone will enjoy it,” she said.
Huma considers herself lucky as she is working renowned actors like Madhuri Dixit and Naseeruddin Shah in Dedh Ishqiya.
“I am very fortunate to work with such good actors. I think I have worked with some of the best actors of our time,” said Huma.
Dedh Ishqiya has been directed by Abhishek Chaubey and is starring Huma Qureshi, Madhuri Dixit, Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi in lead. He casts Vidya Balan in a very bold character in Ishqiya in which Vidya played the clever and sensuous Krishna, who uses 2 petty criminals Iftikhar (Naseeruddin Shah) and Babban (Arshad Warsi) to take revenge on her husband.
When asked why he didn’t cast Vidya in the sequel Dedh Ishqiya, he said; “We couldn’t take her character ahead as we had nothing to offer. So, we thought we could take the story of the two men ahead and how they fall in love with someone else.”
