In an interview when asked the actor about her initial days in the industry and her struggle to stardom, she said,

“I was asked to change my name when I was offered my first project. I was told there was a Pakistani actor with the same name and that I wouldn’t want that association, more so since I wanted to be the leading lady in the film. I was like, ‘I am not going to do that. I will always be Huma Qureshi and people will have to deal with that”

Recalling how she started getting endorsements soon as she reached Mumbai. “I started getting a lot of work once I came to Mumbai. I was working with some of the biggest ad film-makers. But I had to give auditions,” she said.
