Huma spoke about body positivity, womanhood, her journey of self-love and dealing with internal battles among other topics. She also spoke about the ‘male gaze’ with the magazine.
Speaking with the magazine, Huma said, “This Bazaar India cover is so powerful for me, and so strong, because it is not just about being sexy and beautiful, but also because it has not been portrayed through the male gaze. It is about celebrating my own body and womanhood without pandering to that gaze or conforming to certain ideas of it.”
Recently speaking with Hindustan Times, Huma said how she changed in the last few years. “Over the years, I have become more comfortable with speaking my mind. Earlier, I used to be very unsure. I used to feel a lot of things, but because of lack of experience or lack of exposure, I just absorbed and listened to other people… Now, I am more comfortable as an artist and a collaborator. I am in a new phase of my career, which I am enjoying,” she had said.
Huma will be next seen in the upcoming political drama series Maharani season 2. Last week, Huma dropped the trailer on Instagram and captioned it, “Her every move will matter. #MaharaniS2, streaming on 25th Aug only on #SonyLIV #MaharaniOnSonyLIV.” In the show, Huma will portray the role of Bihar chief minister Rani Bharti. As violence increases in the state, she vows to tackle the goons.
Along with Huma, the series also stars Sohum Shah, Amit Sial, Vineet Kumar, Inaamulhaq, Kani Kasturi, Anuja Sathe, Pramod Pathak and Neha Chouhan in the lead roles. Helmed by Ravindra Gautam, the series is all set to stream on Sony Liv from August 25, 2022.
Apart from Maharani Season 2, she will be also seen in Double XL alongside Sonakshi Sinha. The actor also has Tarla, which is a biopic on the life of famous chef Tarla Dalal and a thriller film Pooja Meri Jaan alongside Mrunal Thakur.
