Bhumi Pednekar might just be one film old, but she’s already a household name, and not just because of her tremendous weight loss, but mainly because of her performance in Dum Laga Ke Haisha and in the trailer of Toilet Ek Prem Katha. Today, Pednekar, along with Ayushmann Khurrana launched the trailer of her second film with him, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
From her first film only, Bhumi has been doing films that might just cause a change, or even bigger, a revolution. DLKH dealt with body shamming, TEPK deals with open defecation while SMS talks about erectile dysfunction. At the launch of the trailer, here is what Bhumi had to say about her choice of roles, “I think have been very lucky after my first film that I am getting films that are very high on content, that are different, that break some sort of boundary or ideology and I hope that I keep getting scripts like that and I think that I naturally have an affinity towards films that are different. As an audience I enjoy watching those films so I naturally have a tendency to choose those films.”
Shubh Mangal Saavdhan releases on 1st September. You can watch the trailer here.
