Bhumi Pednekar: It’s About Satisfaction, Not Clothes

Mumbai: Within a short time, actress Bhumi Pednekar has set a unique identity of herself in the Bollywood industry with her excellent acting skills. The actress has earned massive followers and admirers portraying meaningful roles. The ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ actress has nailed the characters in every movie.

Bhumi, who will be next seen in “Pati Patni Aur Woh” opposite Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday, has been essaying different challenging characters. Everyone expects she would repeat the same in her upcoming and justify her character. However, the actress has recently expressed her personal feelings about her movie characters.

Bhumi said that she feels immensely satisfied as an actor when she plays meaningful roles and not when she adorns glamorous outfits in films.

The subject came up because Bhumi will be seen in a glamorous avatar in the film. Asked if she was satisfied playing a glamorous character for a change in “Pati Patni Aur Woh”, she replied: “I feel satisfied when I do meaningful roles in films like “Bala” or “Saand Ki Aankh”. I think the characters you play give you peace of mind and not the clothes you wear in those films.”

“Pati Patni Aur Woh” is a remake of BR Chopra’s 1978 film of same name, and it co-stars Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday. Bhumi plays Kartik Aaryan’s wife in the comic drama while Ananya Panday essays his lover.

Talking about the small town and rural roles she usually plays in her films, Bhumi said: “I am born and brought up in Mumbai, and I am a very different person from the characters I play, therefore I enjoy playing those characters. For me, to play character of a glamorous, urban and English-speaking woman is easy and I wouldn’t have to put in much effort into it.”

She added: “I haven’t been to rural places of our country and I haven’t experienced simple village life, so when I get an opportunity to play such characters it becomes a challenge. I really enjoy that.”

About her latest role, she said: “In ‘Pati, Patni Aur Woh’, I play a glamorous housewife because, according to her eco-system, she feels she is really hot woman. So, during the promotions of the film, I got a chance to wear glamorous outfits.”

“Pati Patni Aur Woh” is directed by Mudassar Aziz and is scheduled to release on December 6.
