Reviewer: Dr. Blofeld (talk · contribs) 15:09, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

I'll review this is a bit later on.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 15:09, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Intro This strikes me as not neutral. "Critically acclaimed" is repeated too much. "She is considered one of the most promising actresses in Hindi cinema." according to whom?
 Done - tweaked
  • Early "Qureshi has worked with several NGOs and assisted a documentary filmmaker". What NGOs and films were these?
Well, only that much information is available.Prashant talk 02:18, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Paragraph break after theatre productions please.


Acting career Could do with a better balance of quotes, a lot by her and Taran Adarsh but there are some others so should be OK.

  • her performance earned an honorable mention at the 2012 Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles. What is "an honorable mention"? Award, special award what?
 Done - I think, Special mention was used but, was changed during copy/edit by GOCE.Prashant talk 02:18, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
  • generally positive reviews from critics; Qureshi's performance (particularly her scenes with Siddiqui)[9]attracted positive feedback from reviewers. Unnecessary repetition, you only need to say positive feedback once.
  • "broad critical acclaim". Seems a bit much. I'd like to see some evidence of that and some more negative quotes in the article to balance it out.
 Done - Added new sources for the "wide critical acclaim" and a negative quote for her performance in th film.Prashant talk 02:18, 10 April 2013 (UTC)


  • "Qureshi described Gangs of Wasseypur as a "life-changing film"." Shouldn't this be in the career section with the film?
 Done - Added to "Acting career" section.Prashant talk 02:27, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
  • "She is known for her unconventional appearance." What exactly is an unconventional appearance? Does she have five heads? She looks pretty normal for an actress to me and looks pretty slim too. Sources??
 Done - The source was present but was linked to the following quote. I have tweaked it for now.Prashant talk 03:12, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

References Inconsistency in linking publisher names. Either link all or don't.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 17:42, 9 April 2013 (UTC) ♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 17:28, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

 Done - I have linked all the publisher names to maintain consistency.Prashant talk 02:27, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Conditional though. She's barely appeared in any films so this article will need to be continuously updated. If she has any negative reviews I'd like to see them added to balance it out a bit more. Give where she is in her career and coverage, I think the article is adequate at the moment and covers what needs to be covered.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 07:36, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Viceroy's House

Character: Alia (Not Fatima Jinnah)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: as you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article.
I can't find a reliable source, but it appears that Sarah-Jane Dias is playing Aalia. - Arjayay (talk) 12:21, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

Wrong Character Name for Viceroy's House in Filmography[edit]

Hi I'm from Huma's team. The character name for Viceroy's House in Filmography is wrongly mentioned. She's not playing the character of Fatima Jinnah but a character named Aalia. She has requested the admins to kindly change it. Thanks! (talk) 19:47, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

 Done Per this reference - if you have any additional references on this item, please let us know. — xaosflux Talk 21:58, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 12 January 2017[edit]

The display picture is not too good. Can someone help me change this to better one, such as this one or this one? (talk) 17:26, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit extended-protected}} template. DRAGON BOOSTER 17:43, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
How do I do that? I hope some experienced editor helps me with this. It's a genuinely bad profile picture, and it would be nice to see a better one, is all. I would have done it myself but the article is protected, sadly. (talk) 17:48, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Huma Qureshi (actress)Huma Qureshi – The namesake journalist doesn't appear to be as widely popular and recognised as the actress; a Google search conducted by me revealed the entire first page of results dedicated to the actress only. So I think this borders on WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. Kailash29792 (talk) 06:35, 3 February 2017 (UTC) Relisted. Jenks24 (talk) 11:49, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
