Actress Bhumi Pedenkar was last seen in Netflix’s anthology ‘Lust Stories’ and she is soon all set to enthral the audience with her never-seen-before avatar in Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Sonchiriya’. In a career spanning three years, Bhumi has already impressed everyone with her acting prowess and has hits like ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ to her credits.

Talking about her preparation for her role in ‘Sonchiriya’ the 28-year-old actress told Mumbai Mirror, “I prepped for three months, getting the dialect and body language right, but there’s more to my character than just placing her in a certain region. When I started shooting in the Chambal ravines in January, I didn’t know what to expect as we haven’t seen much of the terrain in films, with the exception of ‘Bandit Queen’ and ‘Paan Singh Tomar’. It was a surreal experience.”

It was one of the toughest films, but all of us would look forward to the shoot. I was motivated by Sushant Singh Rajput and Manoj Bajpayee sir, they are phenomenal” she added further.

In all her films so far, Bhumi has mostly played a small-town girl; so talking about her choice of characters, she shared, “As an actor, I want to try everything and I’m sure I will at some point. And while all my characters so far may come from the same social stratum, they have all been diversely different. I’m a Mumbai girl and had never lived in any small town till my first film happened. Playing a city girl will come naturally to me.”

For her debut film ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, Bhumi had gained 28 kg and later she got back in shape. Talking about her weight-loss journey, Bhumi shared, “Gaining weight was emotionally tough as I couldn’t tell anyone about the film and they were wondering if I was eating too much because I was depressed. Losing it was equally difficult as I had to cut myself off from everything, be on a strict diet and work out a lot. I didn’t want to lose out on a role because I couldn’t ‘fit’ in.”

Also starring Ashutosh Rana and Ranveer Shorey, ‘Sonchiriya’ is a crime film based in the backdrop of Chambal. Produced by Ronnie Screwvala, the film is all set to hit the silver screens on February 8, 2019.
