'Thank You For Coming': Bhumi Pednekar Delighted to Earn Comparisons to Hollywood Icons Carole Lombard, Goldie Hawn
Bhumi Pednekar is basking in the success of her latest film, 'Thank You For Coming' which is released on October 6. The coming-of-age film has garnered immense love and admiration from all corners, showering praise upon Bhumi for her outstanding performance. What's more, Western media has drawn parallels between her acting prowess and the legendary likes of Carole Lombard and Goldie Hawn, a comparison that has left Bhumi ecstatic.
"The fact that I have been compared to all-time acting greats like Carole Lombard and Goldie Hawn by the media for my performance in 'Thank You For Coming' is a hugely gratifying validation that will forever be special for me," says Bhumi, her joy evident in her words. "I can't believe that people are saying that I have delivered a performance of a lifetime. I'm still pinching myself reading all the love coming my way, and I'm very happy about it."
For Bhumi, breaking norms and taking on challenging roles has been a driving force in her acting career. She relishes the opportunity to swim against the tide and take on tasks that push her to her limits. She expresses her gratitude to the filmmakers who have recognized her dedication to going the extra mile to bring their vision to life.
Bhumi plays the lead role in TYFC, a film that delves into the significant subject of female pleasure in a patriarchal world. She emphasizes the importance of the film's message, stating, "I'm fortunate to have found an incredibly talented director in Karan Boolani and gifted, visionary producers in Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor in 'Thank You For Coming.' They have given me a film of a lifetime, and I couldn't thank them enough. It is an important film for everyone to see - girls and boys because it talks about something that is extremely important and relevant."
Continuing, she highlights the film's underlying message: "A girl has her rights. A woman has her rights. And she should be celebrated for exercising those rights. 'TYFC' is a celebration of the spirit of womanhood, and I'm incredibly proud that I have headlined this movie and been a vehicle to communicate this important message."
