Actress Bhumi Pednekar, who is known for her unique roles in the industry, recently said in an interview that she wants to do films that display women effectively and she is grateful to the directors she has teamed up with because they had a similar vision for cultural change. Bhumi began her excursion in Hindi film with the hit film ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ in 2015. She was then seen in a film, for example, ‘Latrine: Ek Prem Katha’, ‘Child Chiriya’, ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’, ‘Bala’, and ‘Sandh Ki Aankh’ among others.

The actress is currently anticipating her forthcoming lineup, which incorporates ‘Mr. Lele’, ‘Badhaai Do’ and ‘Raksha Bandhan’.
she said: “I have always been super confident of my film choices. I have always wanted them to be different and unique, preferably with a message and most importantly, portray women correctly.” She also added: “As a woman, I feel I must choose scripts that portray women with a lot of dignity. I’m happy that I have got the chance to play such characters due to the fantastic scripts that have come my way.”

The actress feels “hugely fortunate” that she have a director who had an astounding vision of depicting ladies with a particular goal in mind that impacts society decidedly. She said: “I’m fortunate for all the opportunities that allowed me to play such characters who stood up for themselves and society. I connected with my characters at a deeper level and maybe that’s why people loved them too.” “For that, I’m indebted to my directors and producers who saw me as fit to represent such modern Indian women on screen.”
