Bhumi Pednekar opens up on getting nominated for Filmfare Awards 2023; says, “Whether I win or someone else wins, the idea is to celebrate the spirit of making films”
Badhaai Do got nominated in 14 categories for Filmfare Awards 2023 while Bhumi herself has got two nominations. Talking about her feelings Bhumi told ETimes, “I'm thrilled because Badhaai Do is a very special film. It's a very important film for our generation and for generations to come because it speaks about the relevant rights of the LGBTQ community. Even when the film released, it got immense love but when it's celebrated on a platform like Filmfare, it makes you feel validated, and you feel encouraged as an artist to stand by the stories you believe in. The film has a message, but it is also such a well-made film and I feel very proud that even the technical team and people behind the camera are being recognised.
Bhumi’s journey with Filmfare began when she won the Best Debut for Dum Laga Ke Haisha. Bhumi expressed herself as it completed seven years. She said, “I'm full of gratitude as this would be my fourth Filmfare nomination. After getting the Best Debut, I also won the Best Actress Critics Choice for Saand Ki Aankh. I hope that I win this time around as well but also to be nominated among such brilliant performances is an honour. Whether I win or someone else wins, the idea is to celebrate the spirit of making films.”
Bhumi has often made offbeat, gutsy choices when it came to films. Talking about feeling content while getting rewarded for them, Bhumi said, “I feel that's the way to be. When you step back from the business of it and look into the art of creating cinema, it lives for ever. The idea is to leave a legacy and when such films are appreciated, be it mine of anyone else's, I feel it inspires many people from the younger generation. It's always encouraging for people who don't identify with mainstream cinema and want to make a difference. It's encouraging for them when films like Badhaai Do are celebrated on a coveted platform like Filmfare.”
Meanwhile apart from this, Bhumi recently appeared in the movie Bheed with Rajkummar Rao. Her upcoming filmography is interesting, and it includes Bhakshak with Surya Sharma and Afwaah with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. She is now working on The Lady Killer and Meri Patni Ka Remake alongside Arjun Kapoor.
