“Why should only the male actors play hero?”, says Bhumi Pednekar

Recently Akshay Kumar released an image of his co-production Durgavati where he announced Bhumi Pednekar as the hero of the film on a display card that he is seen holding that reads ‘Presenter’ while Bhumi can be seen holding a card that reads ‘Hero.’

“Why should only the male actors play hero”, says Bhumi Pednekar

Bhumi describes it as an immensely satisfying culmination of a highly fruitful year. “To have a male superstar endorsing me as the hero of a film is a big deal for me. It’s time we stopped making the hero gender-specific. Why should only male actors play the hero?”

In Durgavati, Bhumi says she a full-on hero package. “Fights, drama, comedy…everything. At the start of my career, my second film was with Akshay Kumar (Toilet - Ek Prem Katha). And now he is presenting a film where I’m the hero! It is a proud moment for me.”
