Bhumi Pednekar: Ayushmann Khurrana is special to me


Bhumi Pednekar was shooting for G.Ashok’s horror-thriller Durgavati in Madhya Pradesh. But due to the COVID-19 shooting was held. Recently a video of Bhumi sanitizing the seat in a flight while coming home went viral on social media.

In an interview with Mumbai, Mirror bhumi said “I have a responsibility towards my family. Even my staff made sure that their seats were sanitized; anybody could have been a carrier. It is nothing to be ashamed of. I was coming home to my mother, who is in the age group that is vulnerable to the disease,”

The actress goes on to emphasize that while her family worried about her safety, she was more concerned about them.“My sister is a lawyer. She goes to the office and a lot of people come home to meet her I have revived my love for reading and am catching up on my sleep.

I had been shooting continuously since 2017 so it’s time for a breather. I am also learning how to cook like my mother, simple Ghar ka khana, recipes I can pass on to my children when I start a family.”

The actress also praised her Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Bala costar, Ayushmann Khurrana, and said. “Ayushmann has worked so hard to be where he is today. He is special to me as I started my career with him. We work really well together since our sensibilities are very alike. I am trying to do the same. I am really proud of Ayushmann. I am not sure if I’ll be able to own a genre but I am sure I have created a space for myself as an actress,” she says,

“There are so many interesting stories today. As an audience, if I am investing two-and-a-half hours in a film, I’d expect more than just entertainment, she avers, quick to add that it was not a conscious decision to gravitate towards social-dramas.

“The women I want to play should have gravitas and it is possible only if the story has it. the definition of cinema has changed, today anything is high on content, delivers a message too.

Bhumi was last seen in Karan Johar’s Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship.
