Bhumi Pednekar starrer Durgamati The Myth trailer has been released and the actress is seen in a never-seen-before avatar. While the trailer looked interesting, some netizens instantly compared her performance with Anushka Shetty’s performance in the Telugu version of the film.
Anushka Shetty starrer Telugu horror-thriller Bhaagamathie, directed by G. Ashok, was released in 2018. The film received a positive response from both audience and critics alike. Moreover, the film even went on to become the first South Indian female-oriented film to gross one million dollars in the USA.
However, when the makers of the Durgamati The Myth, which is the Hindi remake of the Telugu film, released the official trailer, it opened to mixed reactions on social media. It seems fans of the Bahubaali actress aren’t impressed with Bhumi Pednekar’s performance, and Durgamati trailer is receiving criticism from Anushka Shetty’s fans.
One user tweeted, “This is copy of Bhaagmati?? This woman can’t even act for god’s sake and she acted in this film?? Anushkashetty nailed it in telugu !!,” while another user wrote, “Even dialogue When #BhumiPednekar says – mai hu #durgamati is so bad…In #Bhaagamathie #AnushkaShetty was so good.”
Here are some more tweets from the fans of Anushka Shetty:
Just from this 1 still I feel like #AnushkaShetty‘s performance in #Bhaagamathie is unmatched by #BhumiPednekar‘s in #Durgamati & it’s my personal view & I’ve seen #DurgamatiTrailer & it looks like a generic copy of South Indian movie, Are they running out of new creative ideas? pic.twitter.com/umMII3jlX8

Saw the trailer of #Durgamati a hindi remake of #Bhaagamathie
Cannot imagine anyone else other than Anushka Shetty as Chanchal. Bhumi Pednekar might have done a good job, but in trailer it doesn’t seem as powerful as Anushka Shetty
