The actress said, “I am doing a bunch of stuff on OTT and films, which are strong and well-etched characters. Because of the success of ‘Maharani’, I am getting so many opportunities to shoulder films, which is really cool, fun and exciting."

She continued to say, "It is a mix of both films and OTT. In films, there is a remarkable change and a lot of great roles are being written for women. And it is happening on OTT as well. There is an influx of great content."

Qureshi stated that the goal of initiatives like "Maharani" and "Tarla" is to honour the achievements of women in many sectors.

"We often think of the kitchen as a place of subjugation for women and that this is your place, but how a woman back in the day, cooked her way out in the national and international scene for me is fascinating. She became a role model for so many people. She was like any other ordinary woman next door and was not a glamorous doll. She was her own person and stayed true to who she was. And that resonated with me," said the actress.
