Bhumi Pednekar: “I’m glad that it has been hard to stereotype me”


Bhumi Pednekar is one of the best actresses of our generation. The actress hates to be put in a box. She does not like to be typecast.

The talented actress said, “I’m fortunate that as an actor, I have not been put in a box. I have dabbled many genres, been part of commercial as well as edgy, disruptive films and fortunate enough to find projects that try and affect social change like Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Bala, Badhaai Do, etc.” Further, she added, “I’m glad that it has been hard to stereotype me because in this industry that’s the first thing that happens to anyone. I have only tried to break the mould with every film, with every role. I like disruption. I will always look to do the same. I hate doing the routine. I hate doing similar films and roles. It doesn’t creatively inspire me.”

Bhumi has plenty of projects lined up in her kitty. She feels audiences will be pleasantly surprised to see her dabble in multiple genres in her next slate of movies.

Bhumi continued, “So, one can always expect the unexpected from me. The Ladykiller, Mere Husband Ki Biwi, Bhakshak and my future slate of projects are extremely distinct. Each project is fresh and has a newness to them and they will enable me to showcase my craft in the best possible way.”

Her upcoming appearance will be seen in “The Ladykiller” alongside Arjun Kapoor portraying a small-town playboy who falls in love with a self-destructive beauty.
