Huma Qureshi is the latest Indian actor to debut in Hollywood with Zack Snyder's zombie heist venture, Army of the Dead. The makers of the Dave Bautista-starrer dropped the trailer recently and only those with keen eyes can spot Qureshi in the clip. Though her appearance lasts barely a second, the actress said she is "super proud" of this association, on social media.

She shared the director's tweet and said, "Super proud to be a small part of this genius man's vision @ZackSnyder always a fan and friend forever (sic)." Several industry friends relayed their wishes and greetings in the comments.

Other than her character's name, nothing much has been revealed about Qureshi's role and the trailer provides minimum assistance. While Hollywood seems like a dream place for many Indian stars, we've been baited often. Priyanka Chopra had appeared for only one second in the first trailer of Baywatch, despite being the main antagonist. Deepika Padukone had shared a similar fate in XXX trailer.
