Guneet Monga's significant Oscar victory was commended by Huma Qureshi, who referred to the producer as an inspiration. Huma stood with Guneet's Oscar trophy and said, “This one's for Aram Nagar!” in honor of her first producer. The short documentary film “The Elephant Whisperers” and the song “RRR's Naatu Naatu” both won two awards at the Oscars in 2023, making the 95th Academy Awards particularly memorable for India. The compatriots, including Huma, were happy of their country's prominence on a worldwide scale.
In an Instagram video, Huma said, “Friends, I just want to say, this one is for Aram Nagar,” while posing with Guneet's Oscar trophy. The location of Guneet's office in Mumbai is Aram Nagar. Afterwards, Huma kissed the trophy and said, “Yasss!”
“My first producer (Gangs of Wasseypur), buddy, nearly housemate (that's how my name is still preserved on her phone), @guneetmonga,” Huma said in the post. You inspire me, daughter, and I'm so proud of you for showing us how it's done. Enjoying her best life and winning an Oscar for India on her third month of marriage—this is the stuff of fairytales. I've seen your perseverance in an all-boys club and your grit, passion, and drive. All I have to say is, “This is just the beginning!”
Oh, and thank you for allowing me to interact with “Goldie” and make these absurd movies with her, she said. “Now I'm simply going to have to buy my own so we can pose together (kissing face with love, red heart, and fire emojis),” she said. Huma is seen in the video sporting a beige hat and a black jacket with a yellow stripe. Guneet, on the other hand, is wearing a green shirt, while Sunny is sporting a white T-shirt with white stripes.
Huma and Guneet's close friend and filmmaker Farah Khan penned the article “Too good.” Achin Jain, Guneet's co-producer at Sikhya Productions, tagged her in a post with red love emoticons. Got my own… Amen (folded hands emoji), producer Swati Shetty wrote.
In contrast, Huma made her movie debut in 2012 with Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur. Together with this, Huma and Guneet collaborated on the films Trishna and Shorts.
The documentary “The Elephant Whisperers,” which was directed by Kartiki Gonsalves and produced by Guneet, received an Oscar for Best Documentary Short Film. At Tamil Nadu's Mudumalai Tiger Reserve, two individuals adopt two infant orphan elephants, who are the subject of the documentary.
The Martha Mitchell Effect, “Haul Out,” “How Do You Measure A Year,” and “Stranger At The Gate” were up for nominations with The Elephant Whisperers.
