She further said: “That’s not all, The Elephant Whisperers hit it out of the park by winning the Best Documentary Short Film Oscar.”
“As an Indian and as a member of the Indian film fraternity, I felt proud because we had been recognized in two completely different genres,” the Double XL actress added.
Huma Qureshi also thanked late Irrfan Khan and Priyanka Chopra for paving the way for Indian actresses in Hollywood.
“With Hollywood films becoming global in terms of the actors who are cast from different countries and ethnic backgrounds, it bodes well for actors at large is what I feel," she said.
