The ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ actress Huma Qureshi is making her Hollywood debut with ‘Partition: 1947’. The film directed by Gurinder Chadha has been renamed to ‘Partition: 1947’ from ‘Viceroy’s House’ for the Indian audience. It is a lovestory of a Muslim girl named Aalia and a Hindu boy named Jeet, set in the backdrop of India-Pakistan partition. How their love suffers due to the line being drawn between two countries is what the film is all about.
Being her first international project, Huma sure is quite excited for the film and is making her best efforts to create a buzz. She had recently flown down to Delhi to meet the press there and that’s when she revealed that she had to audition for this project. She stated, “I didn’t go looking for an international project or a Hollywood film. Gurinder Chadha was making a film about the Partition. She wanted an Indian actor. Her casting director sent me the script and asked me to read it and also send an audition tape.”
