B-town’s bubbly girl Bhumi Pednekar turns a year older today.  For the past few years, this talented actress has been stealing hearts with her stellar on screen performances.  From Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) to Sonchiriya (2019,) let’s take a look at Pednekar’s journey in Bollywood. 

 

1) Initial years at YRF

In the initial years of Pednekar’s career, every aspiring actor wanted to impress her.  You may wonder why. Before venturing into acting, Pednekar worked as casting director Shanoo Sharma’s assistant at Yash Raj Films for almost six years.  As a casting director, she helped in selecting approximately 800 actors for different roles. Back then, Pednekar was inclined towards direction and not acting. 

 

2) Sharma’s golden advice

Bhumi Pednekar’s colleague, Shanoo Sharma, who is the head casting director at YRF, noticed, Pednekar had the acting chops and convinced her it was not direction, but acting she ought to pursue.  Pednekar took this advice and started working on her acting skills. After giving a plethora of auditions, she was finally able to make her debut with the film Dum Laga Ke Haisha in 2015.  Essaying the role of an obese girl, she stole millions of hearts with her first on screen appearance. 

 

3) Rise to fame

After her debut film, Pednekar starred in several content rich films like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Shubh Mangal Savdhaan (2017) and Sonchiriya and proved her acting capabilities to the world.  For Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017,) she even won the Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Award for the Best Actress in 2018.  Pednekar also made her digital debut with the web series Lust Stories.  Though Bhumi Pednekar is a critically acclaimed actress, we think she deserves more recognition from the mainstream audience. 

 

On the work front, Pednekar will next be seen in Saand Ki Aankh and Karan Johar’s Bhoot Part 1 – The Haunted Ship.  With such content rich films in her quota, we are sure Bhumi Pednekar is quickly moving towards stardom. 

We wish Bhumi Pednekar a very happy birthday and many more successful years ahead.

Jaipur Literature Festival is an annual literary festival which takes place in Jaipur.  It is said to be the world’s largest free literary festival. Every year, eminent personalities attend the festival to speak about current affairs and political trends.

Actress Dia Mirza attended the event this year and was speaking about climate change.  However, the actress broke down into tears in the middle of her speech. Upon being asked the reason for the tears, Dia Mirza said she was affected by the tragic demise of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, who passed away in a helicopter crash.

The actress delivered a message about the importance of being empathetic and said, “Don’t hold back from being an empath. Don’t be afraid of shedding your tears. Feel it, feel the full extent of everything. It’s good. It gives us strength. It does. And this is not a performance.”  

When offered a tissue to wipe her tears, the actress refused by saying, “I don’t need paper.”  This particular statement attracted trolls on Twitter, which compared her to a desi version of Greta Thunberg and pointed at how the actress did not mind attending the event in a petrol vehicle but refused tissues.
