Experiencing bad times in someone’s life is as important as witnessing good times as it teaches many things, actress Huma Qureshi. Huma is currently busy with three films — “Dobaara”, “Viceroy’s House” and southern movie “White”.
The 29-year-old actress, who is to share screen space with ‘Downton Abbey’ star Hugh Bonneville in Gurinder Chadha’s British-Indian historical drama film “Viceroy’s House”, is also one of the Bollywood divas who is known for her risque fashion sense and she feels that looking good all the time is very important to set right examples for youth.
“As a person in limelight people are always watching and observing you, whether you like it or not. You automatically feel a certain sense of responsibility that you shouldn’t do something that is detrimental to anyone else,” she said. Huma also says that fashion police is very important for keeping a check on your style sheet.
“Police, fashion or otherwise, helps to regulate, you know. It helps you put your best foot forward and facilitate a healthy trend. So it’s not about being scared but one can’t complain as it is here to stay,” said the actress who is a fan of the ongoing season of “Game of Thrones”.
“I think bad times are very important, maybe even more than the good times. Like, it is said, while its important to win, it is equally important to lose. It teaches you to pick yourself up, dust off and work harder to achieve greater heights,” the actress said.
Huma was in the southern city to launch Bata’s largest flagship store.
