Bhumi Pednekar Thinks It’s Her Duty To Portray Women With Dignity
Actress Bhumi Pednekar has always been aware of the impact a celebrity has on society. Only recently, she had called to the audience in an interview to be aware enough to not compare themselves to those they see on the screen since it can have a very disruptive effect on one’s self-worth.
Of late, the actress has expressed her ideology that navigates the roles she picks to portray. She thinks herself responsible to play parts that the woman of the real world can relate with and even rejoice in.
“I have always been super confident of my film choices,” Pednekar said. I have always wanted them to be different and unique, preferably with a message and most importantly, portray women correctly. As a woman, I feel it is my duty to choose scripts that portray women with a lot of dignity. I’m happy that I have got a chance to play such characters due to the fantastic scripts that have come my way.”
She goes on to thank the creators behind these movies, “I’m hugely fortunate that I have got directors who had amazing vision of portraying women in a certain way that impacts society positively. I’m fortunate for all the opportunities that allowed me to play such characters who stood up for themselves and society. I connected with my characters at a deeper level and maybe that’s why people loved them too. For that, I’m indebted to my directors and producers who saw me as a fit to represent such modern Indian women on screen.”
The actress has left in her wake performances that prove that these are not just empty words. Having debuted in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, she has been in movies such as Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, all simple stories with strong messages aimed both to the individual and to society at large.
The actress is next expected in Badhaai Do. Another project up her sleeve is Raksha Bandhan, for which she teams up with Akshay Kumar again.
