Actress Bhumi Pednekar says she has always been a fashionable person and that the audience assumes she is not into making style statements because of the characters she has portrayed on screen.
“The kind of films I do, people assume that I am not a fashionable person but I am an urban girl and I have always been fashionable. I think people are noticing it more because my films have done well… I am that girl who takes time getting ready,” Bhumi told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
She enjoys dressing up.
“People don’t expect it from me because of the kind of films I do… So, slowly and steadily they will understand that it is just a character I play,” she added.
Bhumi and actress Yami Gautam turned showstoppers for designer Pallavi Foley at the ongoing India International Jewellery Week (IIJW) 2017 on Sunday.
Bhumi also spoke about her upcoming movie Chambal, to be directed by Udta Punjab fame Abhishek Chaubey. The shooting of the film will start in December.
“I will start shooting for my next film in December or January. It is something very special. It is a very different and challenging film,” Bhumi said. Bhumi Pednekar was last seen in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan opposite Ayushmann Khurrana which is a hit at the box office.
The film also stars Sushant Singh Rajput in the main lead. Talking about working with Sushant, Bhumi said, “Sushant is the main lead in the film and he is such a phenomenal actor. So, I am really excited to see how everything unfolds.”
The Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC), the apex body of the gems and jewellery sector, presented the 7th edition of IIJW.
