Huma Qureshi's international debut VICEROY'S HOUSE to premiere at Berlin
Gurinder Chaddha’s international film VICEROY'S HOUSE is all set to premiere at the Berlinale 2017. VICEROY'S HOUSE, a large canvas period film is a historical drama as well as a sweeping love story. This film marks Huma's big Hollywood debut.
Huma essays the role of Aalia, a Muslim interpreter to the last Viceroy of India played by Hugh Bonaville and his wife played by Gillian Anderson.
Huma’s character Aalia is also involved in a strong love story, where she and Manish Dayal find themselves caught up in the seismic end of the Empire, in conflict with the Mountbattens and with their own communities, but never ever giving up hope.
VICEROY’S HOUSE will be Huma’s third film to be screened at an International Film festival. Her debut film GANGS OF WASSEYPUR was screened at the Cannes Film Festival 2012 and DEDH ISHQIYA was also screened at Berlin in 2014.
This Gurinder Chaddha directorial is an official selection at Berlinale 2017 and will have its worldwide premiere at the festival. Huma will join Gurinder and rest of the cast in Berlin, immediately after wrapping up promotions of her upcoming film Jolly LLB 2.
