Most of us have waited for today, for Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha. While Akshay Kumar has done many Hindi films, this is Pednekar’s second. However she feels that she is being relaunched.
She told a popular daily, “Jaya is totally different from Sandhya in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, so I am getting this feeling that I’m getting re-launched with this project. I am excited to see how people will accept the film and the social message it conveys.”
She added, “I was a regular Indian girl who would wear large and medium sizes… But with the added weight, I couldn’t restrict myself as an actor… We don’t have a lot of great scripts written for plus-size women. I’m content with the way I am right now. I’m not skinny, and I like that.”
Speaking about her role in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Bhumi shared, “I was never body-shamed for Dum Laga Ke Haisha. On the contrary, the audience appreciated my character in the film. I will always cherish the love and respect that I received from the audience. I felt overwhelmed and motivated.”
