Huma Qureshi: I don’t care if I’m wearing makeup or not. I’m very happy with how I look
Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi is a straightforward individual and believes in calling a spade a spade. We are living in the 21st century, but our mindset is still medieval and sexist. The Hindi film industry has over the years treated actresses as second class citizens and they are still not given their due credit.
Huma Qureshi, in an interview with Hindustan Times, spoke her heart out. The ‘Jolly LLB 2’ actress said, “Whether I’m putting up a picture of an egg or doing something funny, I don’t care if I’m wearing makeup or not. I’m very happy with how I look. I never had any problem in getting work or male attention,” says Huma, adding that it is sexist how only women are expected to pander to the gaze.
The actress further added, “All this is expected from girls only — wear makeup and look beautiful. My guy friends don’t always have to do their hair and makeup. I’m often told to make my airport looks stylish, and I’m like ‘airport par kaun heels pehenta hai’?”
Huma Qureshi has hit the nail on the head regarding how women are solely judged on their looks and nothing else. Huma is once again reiterating that young girls need to focus more on their talent, rather than superficial looks. Women worldwide are expanding their horizons and it is high time that we change our bigoted and sexist mindset.
