How many times have we seen an actress having 3 films releasing in 3 consecutive months? This rare feat is achieved by Bhumi Pednekar and everyone across the nation is praising the gorgeous actress. While we saw her playing a Shooter Dadi in Saand Ki Aankh and then as a confident girl with dark skin in Bala, she has transformed herself into Glamorous wife forPati Patni Aur Woh.The film is slated to hit the screens on 6 December 2019 so let’s read out what Bhumi Pednekar has to say to about the film and her role.
When a journalist asked that why did you choose this film Bhumi told, “I grown up watching big films of Raveeena Tondon, Madhuri Dixit, Karishma Kapoor, Sridevi ma’m Kareena, Priyanka Chopra etc. These are the women we have seen and idolized, you know they danced to thier legendary songs in big films and i wanted to do such dhamakedaar, big mass film. Fortunately Pati Patni Aur Woh is a balanced film, it is massy and commercial but at the end it is not senseless. I wanted to do such balanced film since the start of my career and Pati Patni Aur Woh is that script.”
To an interesting question like, Remake of a Classic is subjectively not a good thing because people usually find an excuse of comparison and then makers think like, let’s not touch a classic, so did you ever feel that pressure? Bhumi replied “No. I am not scared of remake. I have not seen the original film so i didn’t have any reference point. My process for this film was same. I wanted to work with Kartik, i found Ananya very cute so i thought let’s do it. Juno Chopra was asking me about the film since long but i didn’t have answer that time. Also i didn’t want to portray a stereotypical wife that we are seeing since long.”
We all know Bhumi is playing a ‘Patni’ and Ananya Panday is portraying ‘Woh’ Character but what if Bhumi had to play Woh’s Character? She quickly replied, “Why not. Of course 100%. The character of Woh in the film is Fantastic, she is very empowered girl. You know she is very confident, strong and beautiful girl. Like i said, your greatness cannot be defined by the negativity or positivity of the character.”
When asked about her views on a rare achievement of 3 film in 3 months and setting an example for other actors, Bhumi gratefully thanked saying, “I am just very grateful. I have not had time to seat back and understand that what has happened this year. Because you know, this year was an year which really cemented my position as an actor. It has given me a lot of security as an actor. I am very thankful to all the filmmakers who given me these opportunities, who have seen me in these different light every time. Especially to Mudassar sir and Juno Chopra sir for Pati Patni Aur Woh because i really couldn’t have a better way of ending this year.”
