Bhumi Pednekar made a rather unusual yet smashing debut alongside Ayushmann Khurrana in Dum Laga Ke Haisha. Since then, there has been no turning back for the casting associate turned actress who has to her credit several content-driven roles.
But well, there are always some instances in life that push us to work beyond our limits making warriors out of ourselves, and that is exactly what happed with Bhumi Pednekar too! The Pati Patni Aur Woh actress lost her father at a relatively young age of 18 and has emerged victorious after 2 years of misery post the unfortunate incident.
Opening up about losing her father and making sure to work doubly hard, Bhumi has opened up to Pinkvilla saying, “We were quite young. I was 18, Samiksha was probably 15 when we lost our dad due to cancer. We saw him through prolonged sickness and really suffer a lot. Obviously, losing a parent is never easy and I had a wonderful father. We miss him every day but my mom is made of something else, she really got us together. I think just us as a family, we went into warrior mode post that.”
The journey for the Pednekar sisters has not been an easy one. Bhumi further said, “I start working, 10 times harder than I would. We both just grew up and realised that sh*t is getting real, and we need to get our act together. The two years were a mess but we gathered ourselves really fast. Today when we look back, we wonder how we survived those days, how we got through it, but it happened.”
Bhumi has an impressive filmography with films like Bala, Saand Ki Aankh, Sonchiraiyaa and most recently Pati Patni Aur Woh to her credit.
