Bhumi Pednekar made a debut with ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ where she starred as a plus size heroin and broke all the regimens of a regular Bollywood actress.
‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ is a romantic comedy drama wherein Bhumi takes the role of a independent and ambitious overweight girl.
The movie which released way back in the month of February, managed to grab many eye balls.
Mumbai born actress- Bhumi Padnekar lost as much as 27 kgs post the grand success of the movie.
‘The journey of shedding weight was tough but the only good thing was it did not take a toll on my health. It was all natural and planned. It didn’t affect me mentally, which generally happens’ she states.
‘But I did have to do a lot of hardwork. It was a fun process for me. I really enjoyed doing it. There wasn’t any day when I was missing on anything because I was taking the fat-free version of it’ she added.
‘The film was more like an achievement for me because this was something which I always wanted to do. My personal life hasn’t changed much post the film. ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ gave me a lot of love, respect and acceptance. It makes me happy that people are recognizing me and they speak a lot about my work’ she concluded.
Talking about her upcoming projects, Bhumi reveals that she is currently on the look out for her next.
‘I am meeting a lot of people and reading a lot of scripts. Very soon, I will be announcing my second project. Surprisingly, I am not getting roles where the makers look at me like Sandhya and that is a motivation for me. The roles I am getting are diverse and amazing. I happy that I am not getting pigeonholed after my first film’ she stated.
It’s an understatement to state that ‘We feel jealous about it’!
