Huma Qureshi is busy with her upcoming film
‘Viceroy’s House’, which is directed by Gurinder Chadha.
While shooting for her next, ‘Viceroy’s House’, Huma Qureshi took a history
lesson when she met with India’s last Vicerine’s (Lady Edwina Mountbatten)
80-year-old translator, Jaya Thadani, in London. Their regular interaction gave
Huma a lot of information related to the Viceroy’s era.
Spokesperson adds, “The film is a period drama set against the backdrop of
Partition. Huma is part of Lord Mountbatten’s entourage and there’s a love
story woven in between her and another member of the staff. Jaya gave Huma a
better understanding of how people spoke and behaved and shared anecdotes of
things that happened in that period.”
Huma, who recently also visited ‘Jio MAMi Movie Mela’ with Gurinder Chadha and
interacted with the audiences, adds, “It was great to gather first-hand
information on how women spoke or behaved back then. She is a wonderful person
and we have been in touch since then.”
