Bhumi Pednekar is an Indian actress. She started her career with the movie “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”, opposite Ayushmann Khurranna. Now, she is gearing up for her next releases “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” and “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan”. Both the movie is based on the stories of the rural milieu. About this Bhumi Pednekar says that she is glad that stories of the heartland are translating into high on content films in Bollywood.
Recently at the press conference, Bhumi reacted heartily when one of the reporters called her Bollywood’s ‘village girl’, given her choice of films. Bhumi replied, “I am confused if that’s a compliment or…Well, yes, that’s 70 per cent of our country… and I think the kind of films that are being appreciated today, the kind of films that are high on content these days, are heartland stories. So I am very lucky that I get these films. But as far as I am non-village in my real life, and I stick to being Bhumi (earthy), it’s all good.”
Talking about her upcoming movie “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” which is directed by Shree Narayan Singh co-produced by Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey. The movie features Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead roles, with Anupam Kher, and Sana Khan in supporting roles.
