Bhumi Pednekar is one of the most sought after actresses today because of her brilliant acting skills. Within a very short time she has pampered audiences with brilliant works in films such as Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Sonchiriya, Lustgeschichten, Toilette, Ek Prem Katha, Saand Ki Aankh and Pati Patni Aur Woh. Bhumi is credited with making the right choices to better portray women on screen, and the actress thanks yesterday’s phenomenal cast members for initiating the switch for heroines on screen.
She says: “In all epochs of cinema there have always been films that were characterized by a progressive representation of women. Even in the 90s because I’m a 90s kid, be it Rangeela, DDLJ, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai – there were films in which women played strong characters. Thankfully, a massive change had already started before I became an actress and it definitely helped me. Jaya Ma’am, Shabana Ma’am, Smita Ma’am, Sridevi Ma’am, Hema Ma’am, Rekha Ma’am – all of them made healthy cinema and made a significant contribution to the way women were portrayed on screen. “

Bhumi believes that today’s audience isn’t just looking at a heroine to add glamor to the screen. She says, “As a female actress, I’m not only expected to be in a movie to add glamor, to be in a song, or to be an object of admiration. There is much more that I contribute to a film today. I think women are in a much better place and position today to gain respect for their craft. “
The actress says that today’s audience celebrates versatility and she is really happy with this advancement in society. She says, “If you look at Kareena Kapoor, she made a Chameli and a Fevicol Se. If you look at the selection of actresses today you will find that everyone is so different and diverse and that is just amazing. Today people expect something from an actress like me, and that’s my brand of cinema, my credibility and I’m grateful for the responsibility that the audience has placed on me. “
