Bhumi Pednekar tasted huge success in 2019 with most of her films doing well at the box-office and winning her appreciation from various quarters. In 2020, she will be seen in some exciting projects including Durgavati, and 2021 also seems very promising for her.

Pednekar will soon start shooting for her much-awaited film Takht, which is a period drama from the house of Dharma Productions. The film boasts of an ensemble cast, starring Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and Anil Kapoor in principal roles.

For the first time in her life, Bhumi Pednekar is studying history books without having to write an exam. The actress has been making the most of the lockdown period by studying the history books to better understand the nature and the context of Takht.

Pednekar, who started her career with Dum Laga Ke Haisha in 2015 and has essayed a wide variety of characters over the past five years, will play one of the most challenging roles of her career in Takht. She is leaving no stone unturned to keep herself fully prepared before facing the camera.

“Most actors who are working in period dramas or real-life stories are basically doing what Bhumi is doing. It is important for a lot of people to pick up those books and notes because they forgot to really understand and grasp during school because they were doing it to write an exam. But now, it is for life lessons and so that is getting them hooked faster during the lockdown period,” a source informs an entertainment portal.

Takht was earlier slated to start production in the second quarter of 2020. But all plans went for a toss due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. A new shooting schedule will be prepared once the lockdown is lifted.
