Collecting Urdu poetry books is Huma Qureshi's new hobby

Huma Qureshi has a new found hobby. The actress has been collecting old books with Urdu poetry.

While poetry has been a major part of her childhood and growing up years, she only got interested in Urdu poetry recently.

She is fascinated by the language and although she has a lot of knowledge about poetry, Urdu poetry specifically is very different.

Huma feels that in Urdu words are woven together in a beautiful manner giving the poems a much deeper meaning.

When she recently read a few pieces of Urdu poetry, she was so intrigued that she has now been collecting books with Urdu poems.

She is extremely fond of reading Urdu poetry and is trying to get her hands on as many books as she can.

She already has a small collection of Urdu poetry books but is constantly searching for more.

Huma Qureshi shares, "Poetry or Urdu shayri has so much beauty in the way it is written and recited. The interest in Urdu poetry came to me so late... I wish I had discovered this gigantic treasure earlier."
