Mumbai: Huma Qureshi, who will be seen in one of the stories in "Shorts", says the film has already received so many praises that they are not thinking about its box office performance.

"Shorts" is a compilation of five short films helmed by five different directors - Neeraj Ghaywan, Vasan Bala, Anubhuti Kashyap, Shlok Sharma and Gitanjali Rao.

Co-produced by Guneet Monga and Anurag Kashyap, the film will see the "Gangs of Wasseypur" trio - Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Huma Qureshi and Richa Chadda - teaming up again. The film's cast also features newcomers such as Murari Kumar, Arjun Srivasava, Satya Anand, Vineet Singh, Preeti Singh and Ratnabali.

"We haven't made this film for the box office. These are new directors, fresh talent, and we are also new-age actors, so the idea was to create new cinema, new thoughts, and new films.," the 26-year-old said on Monday at the first look launch of the film.

The five short films are titled "Hidden Cricket", "Moi Murjani", "Epiphany", "Geek Out", and "Chai" and are to release on July 12.

Huma further said that the idea behind 'Shorts' is to "create a new breed of actors and directors who have an interesting way of looking at things".
