Bhumi Pednekar on solo-starrer Durgavati: Exciting to helm a film alone

Mumbai: Actress Bhumi Pednekar is gearing up for her subsequent launch, the heroine-centric Durgavati. The wait is thrilling in addition to nerve-racking as a result of that is the primary time she can be toplining a movie alone.

“It is the first time that I am helming a film alone and it is exciting as well as nerve-racking. There is a lot of responsibility on me,” Bhumi mentioned.

“I have always had a co-star to share the responsibility with, and now I am helming this film. I am really excited to see how people react to this. I have never looked like this. People have never seen me in this avatar,” she mentioned about starring within the horror movie.

Bhumi can also be set to start out taking pictures for “Badhaai Do”, half two to the Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer “Badhaai Ho”. Ayushmann and Bhumi have scored hits with “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”, “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan” and “Bala” previously.

“He was my first hero,” says Bhumi, referring to the truth that she made her Bollywood debut within the 2015 launch, “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”, and provides: “Out of the eight films I have done in four years, three have been with him! He is a dear friend and I am fond of him. I feel happy when I see where he has reached. He really deserves it because he has had such a long journey.”

Bhumi provides the three movies she has performed with Ayushmann have “really been true to their genre”.

“I feel lucky because we have created a space with each other that is rare. I love collaborating with him because we are likeminded and our value system is similar. Till date it has been a 100 per cent success rate and I hope it stays that way,” she mentioned.

Bhumi is glad doing the significant cinema she has been part of. “I feel fortunate that I’ve never been on a film set and felt like why am I here? I don’t want to be unhappy doing the work I do and that has never happened. I have never been part of a film I felt is not correct,” she mentioned.

Bhumi says as an actor her career comes with a sure duty. “There is a lot that needs to change and if I can use my craft, my voice, the medium that I have been given by God to bring about a positive change around me, I will be a lucky person. The priority is to entertain the audience but I always make sure I leave them with more than a couple of laughs,” says Bhumi.
