Priyanka has a fan in Bhumi – Bhumi Pedneker: Priyanka Chopra is someone I admire as a girl and a woman
Beautiful, intelligent and warm, these are the words that best describe Bhumi Pednekar. The young actress made our jaws drop with a superlative performance in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, which had her in the role of an overweight Sandhya looking for love and respect from her husband, Prem played by Ayushmann Khurrana. Praise flowed in for Bhumi from all quarters and she won numerous awards as well. She is back with her next film, Toilet – Ek Prem Katha that focuses on the topic of defecation in the open in India’s rural sector and how it affects the lives of women in particular. Akshay Kumar plays her loving husband, who tries to make her life simpler by constructing a toilet.
We met Bhumi for an exclusive chat and asked her which Bollywood actress’ career graph inspired her the most. Was it Vidya Balan or Kangana Ranaut or Priyanka Chopra? Not surprising, she revealed that she was a huge fan of PeeCee. Bollywood’s desi-girl is making waves in the West with her talent, attitude and warm vibes. Bhumi said, “I really admire Priyanka. In fact, I have been admiring her since many years after she won the crown. Saying that, I would not like to follow anyone but make my own space. The path is different for each one of us but as a girl and woman, I admire her.”
Bhumi, we are sure many girls feel the same about Priyanka. Coming from a non-family background, she rose through the rungs to make a name for herself. And then, she forayed into the West and charmed everyone. As Alex Parrish in Quantico to Victoria Leeds, she is one who always looks ahead. Stay tuned to Bollywood Life for more scoop and updates.
