Bollywood actress Bhumi Pednekar is regarded as one of the most clutter-breaking actors of Bollywood. She has given several films that aimed at changing society for the better, championed representation of women in cinema and fought for gender inclusivity, including battling for the LGBTQIA+ community in India.
Bhumi Pednekar: “Will never fall into the rut of following the norm to be a leading lady!”
Bhumi is recognized as unconventional heroine, breaking away from the typical on-screen appearances and film choices made by leading actresses. She made her debut as an overweight girl in Dum Laga Ke Haisha. However, her performance garnered widespread adoration and appreciation. Bhumi further portrayed a lesbian character on screen, delicately advocating for the LGBTQIA+ community. Her film choices consistently demonstrate a refreshing range and variety.
Bhumi said, “I will never fall into the rut of following the norm to be a leading lady in this industry. I am aware that I’m a deviation from the rule as to how leading ladies have been on screen and I love that. People will only remember me for the work that I do on screen. So, it is very important for me to pick the films that I feel in my gut is trying to say something new or aiming to do something extremely disruptive.”
Bhumi explained her point of view further saying, “For me, the script is the only thing that matters when it comes to choosing a film. It is the age of content and artists can only shine their best when backed by the best scripts. I have never compromised on the quality of the script and the role that I’m playing and that will continue to be the only thing that matters.”
Bhumi mentioned that she never said okay to a project by seeing who is cast in it. She added, “If you look at my filmography since my debut, you will see me choosing scripts and roles that stand out before anything else like who is making it, who is cast in it, etc. I’m only seeking out the best projects because the films I do will be my legacy.”
On the work front, Bhumi has interesting line up of films including Ajay Bahl’s The Ladykiller, Gauri Khan produced Bhakshak, Mudassar Aziz’s Mere Husband Ki Biwi and a couple of more unannounced projects.
