In a media interview, Huma Qureshi said that she has stopped taking advice on what projects to approve and has decided to go by her gut.

Talking about how the year has been for her, Qureshi said: "It's been a great year. At some point in my career, I stopped taking advice from people on what projects to pick up and went with my gut instinct. What speaks to me is what I agree to do. And the love and the success helps in giving me faith that I am headed down an exciting journey."

"Every actor in today's times chases versatility. In fact, that is imperative for an artiste so that they don't get bored of what they are doing. Maharani is in its second season, but obviously the character's graph this time was stronger. She is more confident in her skin and is more comfortable with who she has become," She further mentioned: "It's about society's pressure on each of us to submit to their norms and rules. And Monica is probably a character I personally enjoyed every bit of."

Talking about her character in the recent release Monica, O My Darling, she said,"One can easily label her as the vamp, but there's a reason the film is named after her. Men who use their sexuality to further their dreams aren't judged but women who do it are easily labelled climbers, vamps etc. It was in some ways empowering to play Monica, to give her layers of kindness and yet someone who owns who they are."
