Despite having been in the industry for only a little while, Bhumi Pednekar has become a name to resonate with for out of the box, unconventional films. However, after 6 films, the Toilet: Ek Prem Katha actress has finally done an all-out commercial film, Pati Patni Aur Who alongside Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday.
And now, speaking about her thoughts on doing an out-and-out commercial film, Bhumi Pednekar has said she is more than happy to have done a role so similar to that of Karishma Kapoor from Biwi No.1 who she considers her role model. Revealing her love and admiration for Lolo (Karisma Kapoor), Bhumi has been quoted by Hindustan Times saying, “I have been a huge fan of Karisma Kapoor since I was a child. I even bought a dress that was similar to the one she wore in Raja Hindustani. For me, she is the epitome of a commercial film heroine and I have seen and loved her films. “I have been a huge fan of Karisma Kapoor since I was a child.

It’s a dream come true for me to play a role that is so strikingly similar to hers. I thoroughly enjoyed playing the commercial film heroine for the first time in my career and I realized my childhood wish in the process.”
Bhumi concluded saying, “A fabulous actor, she was outstanding in comedies and Biwi No 1 was a huge inspiration for me while I was preparing myself for Pati, Patni Aur Woh. Karisma as a simple bahu to becoming the firecracker in the film had bowled me over and she was my most definitive reference point to nail my role in this film.”
Featuring Ananya Panday, Bhumi Pednekar and Kartik Aaryan in lead roles, Pati Patni Aur Woh is directed by Mudassar Aziz. Backed by T-series, the film is slated for a release on the 6th December and is a remake of the 1987 original film which originally featured Sanjeev Kumar, Ranjeeta Kaur and Vidya Sinha.
