    Bollywood’s desirable newbie Huma Qureshi has signed Dedh Ishqiya , a sequel of Ishqiya that stars Madhuri Dixit as the lead actress but Huma doesn’t feel insecure or competitive being alongside Madhuri. The 27-year-old says that Madhuri is the quintessential heroine of all times, “There is a lot of pressure when you are working with her. But, she made it really easy for me. When I decided to sign on the film, I knew exactly what I was doing. So there was no apprehension or insecurity.”

    She compares Madhuri to a sun in her comments, "And most importantly I never thought that I was competing with her. I think it is a huge compliment for me that I am starring alongside her in the film. You can`t compete with the sun. There can be no competition." The actress states that she likes to do flicks that is about her, "I would love to do a films that is entirely about me- may be a biopic or a historical character. But till then as long as I am getting strong roles in multi-starrers like 'Gangs of Wasseypur' or ' Ek Thi Daayan ' or 'D-Day', I am not complaining. I will do a female lead film but it has to be the right one."

    Huma believes that cinema has changed its view towards women’s portrayal. Now the films are more women centric and the females are portrayed in a good light, “The kind of roles that are being written and the films that are being made today they are far better. Nowadays female centric films are not just about the sad plight of women but they are about celebrating womanhood." Dedh Ishqiya is a comedy thriller directed by Abhishek Chaubey. Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah will reprise their characters of the prequel. The venture produced by Raman Maroo and Vishal Bharadwaj , is releasing on January 10 next year.
