en Bollywood News Bhumi Pednekar speaks on investing 8 months into Sonchiriya; says, “It was off the theatres in 6 days”

From potential blockbuster to six-day wonder: Bhumi Pednekar speaks about her 2019 release Sonchiriya and how it broke her heart.

Despite a poor performance at the box office, the 2019 Hindi film Sonchiriya has been praised for its powerful storytelling and standout performances. The film stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, and Ashutosh Rana, all delivering exceptional performances in their roles. Recently, Bhumi shared her thoughts on the film and what were her expectations. Bhumi also stated that the commercial failure of the film “broke” her heart.

During a recent conversation with Rajeev Masand, Bhumi revealed that she is strategic in her choices and seeks to diversify her career by selecting films that fulfil her creative desires while also having commercial appeal. She cited her decision to star in Sonchiriya as an example of this approach, as the film satisfied both criteria. Unfortunately, despite her efforts, the movie failed to attract audiences and was removed from cinemas after only a week.

The young actress asserted, “When I did Sonchiriya, it was off the theatres in six days. It was maybe my first heartbreak because every film of mine was a blockbuster before that. The four films (Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Lust Stories) I did before that, did incredible numbers and travelled really well. I am on an all-time high, and then came Sonchiriya, a film I was so attached to because I gave that film eight months of my life.”

Bhumi expressed her belief that the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer had all the necessary elements to become a major success. However, the film was taken down from theatres after only six days, which “really broke her heart”.

Coming to the professional front, the 33-year-old actress is currently making headlines for her latest release, Afwaah. Directed by Sudhir Mishra, it also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sumeet Vyas.
