Our industry should get back on its feet soon: Huma Qureshi
Actress Huma S Qureshi is well aware of the fact that even though Maharashtra government has given permission to resume shoots for all formats, it will still take time for things to normalise.
â€œI genuinely feel we all have to support each other,â€ she said. On how different a scenario it is likely going to be when film shoots go on floor, and if as an actor sheâ€™s willing to take pay cuts, she added, â€œI feel our industry will take a little longer. Right now, there are far more important things like health care, basic necessities that matter to people. I donâ€™t think itâ€™s the time to be selfish or think about yourself, but in the larger interest of whatâ€™s going on. Everybody will have to change.â€
The 33-year-old also believes that films offer hope to people, especially in such testing times, and hence itâ€™s time we all work towards a common goal of bringing it back on track.
â€œFilms in a way are an escape for people, one where we cheer people up through our work. People come to watch our films when theyâ€™re feeling low, and need some inspiration, which is also why I feel our industry should get back on its feet soon. Films have a way of inspiring people. The Government is already figuring out ways how this can happen in a safe manner. Everyone is thinking in the right direction, as the heart is in the right direction,â€ Huma said.
Having said that, the actor points a very important concern with regards to the labour that is there on a film set that will also have to be taken care of once shooting resume.
