Success hasn’t managed to change me! I am still very vulnerable, ambitious, still have stars in my eyes and have huge dreams. This has been, I think, my biggest push in life because I was very young when I decided I wanted to be an actor,” says Patni Aur Who actress Bhumi Pednekar.
Bhumi has had a glorious rise to fame in Bollywood as she delivered back to back box office successes. Her incredible performances from Dum Laga Ke Haisha to Sonchiriya, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Saand Ki Aankh, the actor has carved a place for herself in Bollywood as a versatile actor. The young star wants to chase goals that she wants to personally achieve as a performer.
She says, “I want to do the work that I want to do and want to create a state-space for myself. I don’t want to be a part of the rat race and I had such a clear vision about it.” The actress feels she was fortunate to have got the opportunity to try her hand at acting.
“I am so fortunate that I had the opportunities and it all started with that one job at Yash Raj Films. When I joined them, I was all of 17, I didn’t know what I was doing. I was honestly thinking of going abroad back then for studies. I randomly went to that interview because I knew I had to start working otherwise my parents will send me off abroad for further education and my life changed. There was no stop after that,” the actor said.
In future Bhumi will be seen in Karan Johar’s “Takht”, Anurag Kashyap’s “Womaniya”.
