While there were re­ports of ac­tor Bhumi Ped­nekar (left) get­ting a lot of mar­riage pro­pos­als af­ter her last film Dum Laga Ke Haisha, where she plays the role of an over­weight bride, Bhumi says that mar­riage is not on the cards for a long time now. “I can­not even think of mar­riage for the next 10 years at least. I looked so dif­fer­ent in the film and the last thing that I ex­pected was to have boys want­ing to marry me. But it was all very sweet,” says the 30-year-old.

Al­though she is barely a few months old in the industry as an ac­tor, Bhumi is lov­ing it all. “My first film was bril­liant and I feel that this guarded me against all the neg­a­tiv­ity. I got a lot of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for my per­for­mance. I wanted to be­come an ac­tor, ever since I was a child. I am liv­ing my dream,” she says.

Bhumi says that she is still dis­cov­er­ing her forte. “I am so new that I don’t know what kind of an ac­tor I am. I am try­ing to dis­cover what I am good at,” she says.

The ac­tor, who will again be pair­ing up with ac­tor Ayush­mann Khur­rana in her up­com­ing film, says she shares a great bond with him. “It was so much fun shoot­ing for Dum Laga Ke Haisha with Ayush­mann. I’m sure it will be the same this time as well. He’ll al­ways be spe­cial to me, he was my first hero,” she says.

I can’t think of mar­riage for the next 10 years at least. I looked so dif­fer­ent in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, the last thing I ex­pected was to have boys want­ing to marry me
