Good content reaches out to wider audience, says Huma Qureshi


Actress Huma Qureshi, who will be seen sharing screen space with her brother and actor Saqib Saleem in “Dobaara”, says good content helps in reaching out to a wider audience.

“Dobaara” is the Hindi remake of Hollywood supernatural psychological horror film “Oculus”.

Huma believes remakes will always continue to intrigue audiences.

“I think as long as remakes — whether it is a Hollywood film into a Hindi film or a southern film into whatever… They (remakes) always happen,” Huma said.

However, the 29-year-old actress stressed that the mainstay reaching out to a wider audience is “good content”.

Released in 2013, “Oculus” is the story of a brother and sister battling paranormal activity. Saqib and Huma will be portraying the characters played by Karen Gillan and Brenton Thwaites in the film.

“Dobaara” is slated to release this year in September.

The “Ek Thi Daayan” star, who was last seen on screen in “Badlapur” in 2015, is also marking her debut in southern cinema and will be seen sharing screen space in superstar Mammootty-starrer “White”.

Huma will also be seen in Gurinder Chadha’s “Viceroy’s House”, an upcoming British-Indian historical drama.
