"As a woman, I feel it is my duty to choose scripts that portray women with a lot of dignity" - Bhumi Pednekar

Bhumi started her journey in Hindi cinema with a smashing debut in the critically-acclaimed Dum Laga Ke Haisha in 2015 and has, since then, put up scintillating performances in films such as Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Son Chiriya, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Bala, and Sandh Ki Aankh, among others. All of these projects left an important social message of gender equality.

Bhumi says, “I have always been super confident of my film choices. I have always wanted them to be different and unique, preferably with a message and most importantly, portray women correctly. As a woman, I feel it is my duty to choose scripts that portray women with a lot of dignity. I’m happy that I have got a chance to play such characters due to the fantastic scripts that have come my way.”

She adds, “I’m hugely fortunate that I have got directors who had an amazing vision of portraying women in a certain way that impacts society positively. I’m fortunate for all the opportunities that allowed me to play such characters who stood up for themselves and society. I connected with my characters at a deeper level and maybe that’s why people loved them too. For that, I’m indebted to my directors and producers who saw me as a fit to represent such modern Indian women on screen.”
