Bhumi Pednekar, who made her acting debut with Yash Raj Films’ Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015), has proved her mettle by delivering a series of successful films in the past five years. In 2019, she was seen in four films, out of which three went on to do exceptionally well at the cash counter. One common thing in her last three releases – Saand Ki Aankh, Bala and Pati Patni Aur Woh – was that she played strong women in all of them.
The actress says that how she portrays women in cinema matters a lot. “For me, how I portray women in cinema matters a lot and next year will see me portray some really distinctive, independent, confident and individualistic women. I think I will showcase the different shades of being a woman in 2020,” Bhumi says.
In 2020, Bhumi Pednekar will be seen in several interesting projects. Dharma Productions’ Bhoot – Part One: The Haunted Ship is a horror film, while Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is a satirical comedy. Her much-talked-about Durgavati is again a horror film, presented by superstar Akshay Kumar. She will also have cameo in Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan.
“I am really excited that I am getting to play such a varied mix of women who I hope will stand out and make a statement for who they are, what they believe in and what they stand for. It is great that women are being championed and being celebrated in so many films and I feel nice that I have been part of such cinema,” she said in conclusion.
