Bhumi Pednekar prefers socially relevant movies

Bhumi Pednekar

Actress Bhumi Pednekar debuted in Dum Laga Ke Haisha in which she played the role of an overweight woman. The actress received a lot of accolades for her performance in the message-oriented film. “I feel that today’s people, audiences and filmmakers, we all have become very aware of the problems and the situations that we have around us. Earlier, we were in a position to ignore them… but I think we have now reached a point where we cannot ignore certain things and I think it is fantastic. Cinema is the largest and the easiest way to communicate with the masses and if you can put it to good use, then why not,” Bhumi says.

Her next film, ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ has a social message as well but the actress feels that the film isn’t preachy. “It is a beautiful love story that taps into a lot of aspects of our society as well,” she said. The actress will be seen alongside Akshay Kumar in the movie, “What I did in my first film is nothing like what I am doing in ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’. What attract me are real stories about real Indian girls. It’s not that I only pick those subjects. I pick characters purely on the basis on how good the story is and how good my role and character are,” she says.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is reportedly based on the issue of personal hygiene and is expected to release in Jun 2017.
