Mumbai: Actress Huma Qureshi today said that she owes her success to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who launched her in Gangs of Wasseypur and later cast her in his home production Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurrana.

The director cast Huma in his two-part revenge drama Gangs of Wasseypur, which did good business at the box office.

Huma, who was recently seen in Ekta Kapoor's Ek Thi Daayan, said, "There are two people in my life to whom I can attribute my success – one is Anurag Kashyap and second one is N K Sharma, Delhi-based theatre director. I thank them deeply, they have been mentors, friends, who have nurtured me in their own way."

"One nurtured me when I was doing theatre and other helped me a lot with my first film. I feel glad... Had Gangs of Wasseypur not happened, I wouldn't be doing other movies," she said.

It was reported that it was due to Kashyap's suggestion that the makers signed Huma for Nikhil Advani's upcoming film D Day.

Recently, some reports linked Huma's name with Anurag. Huma says she is tired of reports linking her up with the director. "I do not care about all these things. I laugh at these reports," she said.

The actress will next be seen in Vishal Bharadwaj's home production Dedh Ishqiya. "It is a beautiful script.

It is a lovely film. I was a fan of Ishqiya. I never thought or dreamt that I will do the second part of the film. We are in the middle of the shoot, it is going pretty well," Huma said.
