Bhumi Pednekar says she goes with her instinct when it comes to choosing scripts
Actress Bhumi Pednekar, who will be seen playing the female lead in the upcoming Abhishek Chaubey directorial Chambal, based on Chambal decoits, says she goes with her instinct when it comes to choosing scripts.
Bhumi’s debut film Dum Laga Ke Haisha had won a National Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi and her films Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan have received a good response.
Asked if her upcoming Chambal will break her from the “simpleton” mould, Bhumi said: “I have never really chased a ‘breaking that mould’… I am not an actor who sees that now I will do romantic, urban, thriller films. I am not that sort of an actor. I purely go by my instinct when I read a script.”
The actress says she doesn’t understand “what might be good or bad for my career”.
“I read a script and if the character and film excites me, I just want to be a part of it. That’s the person I am,” she added.
Bhumi says she chases characters. “I literally chase characters and I know that it (‘Chambal’) is going to be challenging and is a tough film for me as well. I am very thrilled about doing this,” said the actress, who features with Sushant Singh Rajput in the movie.
