Want To Do Films That Are Real And Entertaining: Bhumi Pednekar
Bhumi Pednekar made her Bollywood debut in 2015 with a critically acclaimed film 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. Thereafter, she was seen in ‘Toilet- Ek Prem Katha’ which released this month. Interestingly, both the film portrayed her as an educated but not a modern girl.
But, unlike other girls who wish to take up glamorous roles, Bhumi has no interest in taking up such roles. She said that she wants to do diverse roles but not for some image makeover. In an interview, the 28-year-old said, "I am an actor and I want to do every kind of role. I am happy to be a part of cinema today, where we are celebrating and exploring stories that are both real and entertaining."
She added, "Just wearing expensive and glamorous clothes do not merit for me to do a film. There has to be a good story and a good role." Talking about her movie 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan', which is based on erectile dysfunction and releases today, Bhumi said, "It should not be considered as a taboo. It is not a film about erectile dysfunction, it is a love story where the conflict is the problem that happens with the boy. We all are responsible people and we did not want to turn it into a sex comedy because it is not that. These characters are naive and innocent."
She said that she is happy that ‘Toilet- Ek Prem Katha’ has collected over Rs. 200 crore worldwide.
