Be proud of your curves: Huma Qureshi
Asked about how much pressure she faces every day as an actress to look slim and prefect, the voluptuous beauty said: “It’s not just actresses but even a normal girl constantly tries to fit into a particular idea of beauty.
Huma Qureshi, who walked the ramp as showstopper for designer duo Rimple and Harpreet Narula on the last day of Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers India Couture Week 2014, says that Indian women are blessed with “naturally beautiful curves” and they should not feel embarrassed.
Asked about how much pressure she faces every day as an actress to look slim and prefect, the voluptuous beauty said: “It’s not just actresses but even a normal girl constantly tries to fit into a particular idea of beauty. They face the entire pressure of marriage madness where everyone tries and looks prettier and forgets what they actually are. I agree that one should be fit and take care of one’s body as there is no excuse to be unfit. But I feel that Indian women are naturally blessed with beautiful curves. Just because somebody has said that you need to be perfect, one should not kill herself to achieve that. Be proud of your curves.”
Huma also said that one should not try to modify their body just because someone else doesn’t like the way you are. “Don’t be embarrassed about your body. Yes, as an actress, if I have to play a model or wear something where I need to be super toned, I would obviously love to work towards that but that is the part of my job. But my real life is mine and this is how I look. So don’t be apologetic about how you look,” she said.
The actress looked like a true diva on the ramp in a dull gold lehenga with antique zari detailing and a tulle trail. She completed the look with minimal jewellery.
