Zack Snyder is gearing up for the release of his next film Army Of The Dead. The film also stars Huma Qureshi in a key role, and after working with her, Snyder says he only wants to work with Indian actors. The director appreciated Quershi’s work and talked about how he is absolutely impressed by her.
Snyder told Hindustan Times, “She was written as an Indian character, and Qureshi is a really amazing actress, no two ways about it. We talked about who we could get, and the casting director brought her up. I watched some of her material, and I was like, ‘this actress is amazing’.”
Snyder further revealed that he ‘didn’t think that she would do’ the film, but the actress agreed. “I was so happy, and finally, having her on set, she was like, you know, I want only Indian actors in my movies from now on,” he added.
The Army Of The Dead duo has also joined hands with an organisation for Covid-19 relief in Delhi. They will be helping in establishing a ‘temporary hospital facility.’ Qureshi took to social media to make the announcement and said, “I’ve joined hands with @savethechildren_india to help Delhi fight the pandemic. They need our help now more than ever.
We are working to build a temporary hospital facility in Delhi, that will have 100 beds along with an oxygen plant. The project also aims to provide medical kits to patients for treatment at home, which will include consultation with a doctor & psychosocial therapist to ensure that the patient makes a full recovery. Take the pledge with me, help breath life back into Delhi.”
