MUMBAI: Bollywood superstar Huma Qureshi is not happy over Indian media’s portrayal of the “beautiful Kashmir valley with beautiful people”.Huma, who has received three Filmfare Award nominations, lamented violence in Kashmir and called for resolution of the issue.“News channels are not painting a true image of the picturesque valley… they tell very little about it,” Huma, who hails from Kashmir’s Gurez, told BBC Urdu on Monday.The Gangs of Wasseypur star is also distressed over the “incessant violence” in the valley, and cries for a way out.“Whatever is happening [in Kashmir] is wrong and we all should find a solution together,” she said.Kashmir valley is gripped in tensions after the killing of Burhan Wani in July last year.While Huma’s mother belongs to Kashmir, she was raised in Delhi. However, she visits the place every year.Huma’s younger brother Saqib Saleem, a movie star too, also laments the deteriorating way of life in Kashmir.Eager for a solution to the violence, Saleem says, “Life in Kashmir sort of comes to a halt by 8 in the evening. People get up next morning with a curfew. This means there’s a problem that needs to be solved.”This brother-sister duo will be seen together on silver screen for the first time in the forthcoming film, Dobara.There are reports in Indian media that Huma will appear with superstar Rajinikanth in a leading role in his next film. – local channel
