Bollywood actress Bhumi Pednekar, who made her debut with Dum Laga Ke Haisha in 2015, always tries to experiment with her roles. From playing an overweight middle class, small-town girl in her first film to a grandmother in recent times, she has done it all.
Bhumi recently talked with Koimoi.com about the same and said that she is creatively very restless. Actress has also worked in films like Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Lust Stories, Sonchiriya, Saand Ki Aankh, Pati Patni Aur Woh and Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitaare.
Bhumi Pednekar said, “I have to say I have explored and experimented with roles and cinema in a short span of time, which has probably made everyone believe that I’m always looking to do something new every time I come on screen. It is a correct assumption because I’m creatively very restless.”
Bhumi says she has a personal objective as an artiste. She said, “I have pushed myself constantly and I will do so in every film that I sign because deep down inside I want to test myself. I want to see how much I can push and reinvent myself on screen. I have a personal ambition to never fit into a mould as an artiste.”
The actress has mapped out her future, too. “I want to do be remembered as someone who constantly gave the audience something new and was not afraid to constantly try something new. I want to be remembered as someone who was unafraid to experiment, and presented myself in the most diverse avatars possible,” she said.
