Bhumi Pednekar plays the lead in Durgamati which releases today on Amazon Prime Video. Talking about the role, Bhumi says, “Durgamati has really stretched me as an actor. Physically it was a tough film to pull off because of the genre and also my role in the film. For me. Durgamati was definitely my most physically challenging film ever and I loved every bit of it.” Bhumi says doing the horror genre well was definitely on her bucket list as an artist.
As an actor, I want to sink my teeth into all the genres and horror-thriller was definitely on the top of my list. I wanted to see if I could be good at horror and I have pleasantly surprised myself. The proof of the pudding is in getting the reviews from audiences and I’m looking forward to their response eagerly. All I can say that I have ticked off this genre from my bucket list.” She added.
