Three-film-old actress Bhumi Pednekar, who played an overweight married woman in her debut movie “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”, says she has been able to break the stereotype in Bollywood about heroines.
“I have been able to break the stereotype in Bollywood about heroines. I got the chance to be a Yash Raj Films heroine, but it was nothing like the glamorous heroines on the big screen,” Bhumi said.
She continued to break the stereotype in Bollywood by starring in this year’s hit film “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” that throws light on the problem of open defecation. Talking about the cleanliness campaign, she said: “I think Safaigiri and our relationship has already begun, and in some years, our love story will be complete. It is necessary to bring change at an individual level. I am glad the kind of steps that the government has taken for cleanliness are helping us move towards a better India.”
The “Dum Laga Ke Haisha” actress also spoke about her future projects. “My next film is Abhishek Chaubey’s new film which is tentatively titled ‘Chambal’. I won’t be able to disclose any further information. I think it would be better if it’s the director who talks about his film first. What I can tell you is that we will start shooting for it very soon. Apart from that, there are a lot of amazing things lined up for me, but as always I can’t talk about them because I would rather have my seniors related to the projects talk about them first,” she added.
