While peeking into the Bollywood industry and current scenario of films and star prolifics, Bhumi Pednekar is a name we would not miss out with. The actress with a zero filmy background and with no godfather, presented her striking charisma through her first Bollywood debut 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' of 2015 and won hearts of the millions of her newbie fanatics. Now done and dusted with many films, the acing actress is currently tying her seatbelts for her upcoming film release 'Bhakshak', thus could be seen giving numerous interviews and uncovering some interesting updates on her personal and professional front.
Bhumi Pednekar and her choice of unconventional roles!
In her 9 years long career, Pednekar is mostly known for opting unconventional and challenging roles that are portrayed to have an impact into the society. With a deep social message on the shoulders, the actress has never hesitated in portraying those roles but there is a huge catch! If we sneak into the long run game, there are chances of getting cornered by the Bollywood mainstream industry because of her unconventional roles, what we can call as getting 'Stereotyped'. During her recent interview, the same question was raised by the interviewee regarding her fears on being stereotyped to which Bhumi had her own perspectives.
Bhumi Pednekar expresses her views on being Stereotyped
Answering to the question, she accepted her fears but yet she affirmed about her current thoughts on the same. "Honestly I used to get worried about this and may be run away from it but now no. I feel like main jo karti hun vo koi aur nahin kar sakta (What I do in arole, i think nobody else can) and I am not saying that with attitude or trying to be pompous about it. I’ve genuinely worked hard to create a space for myself and more people are welcome in this space, but I am not replaceable over here," the Bhakshak actress replied.
Continuing further she proudly said, "I always try to balance it out like my release before this was a full glam yes feminist thing. I don’t think that’ll ever not be in my film, but that was an out-and-out glamorous popular film, right. It was like everywhere, it was that kind of film and that was my a film that you know my character was the protagonist. Now I have a film that is ek dum doosre end of the spectrum (a film that is totally on the other end of the spectrum), a Bhakshak, and I am comfortable and very happy doing both. So I think I get more films, I don’t think, I’ll be typecast."
