Actor Huma Qureshi on Tuesday said she has completed filming her next Tarla, a biopic on noted food writer and chef Tarla Dalal.
The film marks the directorial debut of writer Piyush Gupta, a longtime collaborator of Nitesh Tiwari who has worked with the filmmaker on hits such as Dangal (2016) and Chhichhore (2019).
Qureshi, who plays the titular role in Tarla, said working on the film was an extraordinary experience.
“They say every character you play as an actor leaves an impression on your soul and Tarla Dalal’s journey has definitely left an impression on my soul. It truly holds a special place in my heart. As I wrap the film, I cannot help but think of the quiet strength, love, humour, and empathy she had,” the 35-year-old actor said in a statement.

Tarla is produced by Ronnie Screwvala, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, and Nitesh Tiwari.
Apart from this film, Qureshi will also be seen in Double XL with Sonakshi Sinha, Vasan Bala’s Netflix film Monica O My Darling, and the second season of her SonyLIV series Maharani.
