Bhumi Ped­nekar ‘greedy’ for dif­fer­ent roles

HT City - - Party / Entertainment -

Ac­tor Bhumi Ped­nekar (above), who made her Bol­ly­wood de­but with Dum Laga Ke Haisha last year, says as an ac­tor she would not want to stick to one genre and that she is “greedy” for try­ing dif­fer­ent roles in films. “I ac­tu­ally haven’t thought about it. For me, it’s like each script as it comes... But as an ac­tor I would not want to stick to one genre be­cause I am an ex­tremely greedy ac­tor,” says the ac­tor, adding, “I want to do dif­fer­ent type of roles, ex­per­i­ment with my­self and push bound­aries. I re­ally hope I get the op­por­tu­nity in the fu­ture.”

Bhumi, how­ever, says that she is “not feel­ing any pres­sure”. “I know there are a lot of ex­pec­ta­tions, but that en­ergy to me is more mo­ti­vat­ing. I’m more mo­ti­vated to do bet­ter and I hope I can sur­pass my per­for­mance as Sand­hya, the char­ac­ter that I did in Dum Laga Ke Haisha.”

Bhumi is cur­rently prep­ping for her next re­lease, di­rected by Sameer Sharma, who had pre­vi­ously di­rected the 2012 com­edy film, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khu­rana. Talk­ing about her char­ac­ter, she says, “It’s very rel­e­vant to what love is to­day and how love changes you. And the girl is happy, peppy and blunt to the face, but at the same time very sta­ble and ma­ture,” she said.
