Bhumi Pednekar: An actor like me is surviving because of contentdriven cinema

27 Aug 2017 (Views: 281)

Over the past few years, Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar have carved a niche for themselves with their nuanced performances in content-driven films. After featuring together for the first time in ’Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, the actors have teamed up for the second time for ’Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’, which addresses the problem of performance anxiety in men and the repercussions it has on a couple and their relationship. During their recent visit to the Bombay Times office, the actors spoke about how they both kicked-off their careers in the industry with unconventional roles and how they were keen on doing films which gave them the opportunity to sink their teeth into the characters. Ayushmann said, "I started my career as a sperm donor, which was very radical. A lot of stars had turned it down. Back then, it was unconventional and that’s the path I want to tread. All my successful films have been content-driven." Bhumi added, ’After ’Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, I tasted blood. My sensibilities veer towards such films now. I basically do films that I, as an audience, would want to go and watch. The credit goes to writers and filmmakers who are attempting subjects which are different. An actor like me is surviving because of content-driven cinema.
