She started her career as a casting professional in Hindi cinema but soon bagged herself a lead role in the 2015 film Dum Laga Ke Haisha but actor Bhumi Pednekar feels her experience working behind the lens helps her to be better in her craft.
Asked if her behind-the camera experience helps her as an actor, Bhumi said: “I don’t know if it has given me an advantage, but knowledge is power, so yeah, maybe. I don’t know if it makes me better than anybody else, but I feel it definitely helps me with my craft.” Bhumi, who is currently busy with her second film Manmarziyaan adds that working at any level gives a person an advantage.
“I feel working at any level gives you an advantage. I have worked for five years before Dum Laga Ke Haisha happened to me, ,” said Bhumi. She’s lost around 30 kilos, which she had gained for her role in last year’s Dum Laga Ke Haisha. The actor also shared that she was a “teenager” when she “started working” “I have sort of worked in every department of filmmaking,” she added. Manmarziyaan also stars Bhumi’s Dum Laga Ke Haisha co-star Ayushmann Khurrana.
