Bhumi made a stunning debut in 2015 with an unconventional role of an obese, newly married small town girl in ‘Dum Laga ke Haisha’ with big hopes of pursuing education as a career and strongly commanding to be loved from a disinterested husband. The emerging star believes she made the right choice as it set the tone of her career.
The year 2017 saw her in contrasting roles of a small town girl in love, yet possessing a bold personality and an opinion of her own. In the Akshay Kumar starrer, she fought for her fundamental rights of hygiene and sanitation, and stood out as a revolutionary in her own right.
While in ‘Shubh Mangal Savdhaan’, the girl dealt with biological problems of her fiancé, most graciously, supporting him with a platonic love relationship, patiently waiting for it to resolve.
All the above concepts are unique and have allowed Bhumi Pednekar to show off her acting prowess. She has had an equal and important part as the male protagonist. The actor went completely underground for 1.5 years, getting back in shape, for her forthcoming films after ‘Dum Laga ke Haisha’
In her upcoming film, ‘Son Chiriya’ opposite Sushant Singh Rajput, she plays a dacoit with a purpose. All her films have been a derivative of reality and audiences associate her with good content and real stories.
Bhoomi believes her career has begun 8 months ago, as she took a hiatus of over a year to shed the extra kilos.
