It’s good that Huma Qureshi and Femina are trying to challenge the perception of perfection and being bold on their cover. No doubt the message is very strong, especially for those who are just not curvy. But being into the glam and show business, I guess Huma wants to be seen as an A lister actress and receive acclaim not only for her performance but for her looks.
And going by the majority of the movies that celebrate the Size zero or hot body or bikini body concept, would the makers still want Huma in the lead with such a figure? Guess no. Nor do the audiences. So saying don't expect me play by your rules the message "I don't owe you perfection. My body, my rule..." doesn't fit in with her. For soon we might as well see her in some movie slimmed, trimmed and propah. Else, Huma be ready to hear the makers and the audiences say “You don't owe us perfection; we don't owe you appreciation…”
Also the concept is nothing new as International model and TV star Denise Bidot recently posed in a Plus Size photo shoot where the photographer captured her body in comparison to that of a regular store mannequin. Bidot’s photo stormed the Internet after cosmopolitan.com posted an article with the picture, affirming that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. The only difference here was that while Bidot posed in the buff, Huma had herself covered.
