Just three films old in the in­dus­try, ac­tor Bhumi Ped­nekar has, so far, worked with two ac­tors — Ayush­mann Khur­rana and Ak­shay Ku­mar — and both of them are mar­ried and set­tled, so there was hardly any scope for her to get linked with them. So far, it is largely her work and not her love life that has been talked about. And af­ter the suc­cess of her re­cent films — Toi­let: Ek Prem Katha (2017) and Shubh Man­gal Saavd­han (2017) — fans are even more cu­ri­ous to know about Bhumi’s per­sonal life. Asked about her re­la­tion­ship sta­tus, she quips, “I am sin­gle. There’s no ex­cite­ment apart from my work. I haven’t worked with many stars, so there are no ru­mours. I’m mar­ried to my work at this mo­ment.” But Bhumi doesn’t shy away from ad­mit­ting that she has been in re­la­tion­ships. “I have, of course, dated many guys. But I’m friends with all my exes,” says Bhumi. So, is she look­ing for that some­one spe­cial? “Hon­estly, I am not against be­ing in a re­la­tion­ship. I’m just very con­tent with my work.” Prod her fur­ther if she’d be okay dat­ing some­one from the in­dus­try, and she says, “I don’t look at a per­son’s pro­fes­sion. Your part­ner needs to have a lot more than what he does in his life. His core is some­thing I need to con­nect with.” On whether her fam­ily ever ex­pects her to get mar­ried, Bhumi feels lucky that there’s no such pres­sure. “I come from a fam­ily where we were told ‘you are not get­ting mar­ried till you are suc­cess­ful’. I have no fam­ily pres­sure,” Bhumi says.
