I’ve never starved myself: Bhumi on her weight loss
Unlike her contemporaries, who went on a strict diet regime to shed those extra kilos, Dum Laga Ke Haisha actor Bhumi Pednekar says she never starved herself to get rid of her fuller figure.
The <g data-gr-id="26">actor ,</g> who lost 27 kgs since last December, said she thoroughly enjoyed her weight loss journey.
“The journey of shedding weight was <g data-gr-id="32">tough</g> but the only good thing was it did not take a toll on my health. It was all natural and planned. It didn’t affect me mentally, which generally happens. “But I did have to do a lot of <g data-gr-id="28">hardwork</g>. It was a fun process for me. I really enjoyed doing it. There wasn’t any day when I was missing on anything because I was taking the fat-free version of it,” she told a <g data-gr-id="29">media</g> person. Bhumi, 25, made a powerful debut with Yash Raj’s romantic-comedy drama Dum Laga Ke Haisha opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. Her character of an ambitious overweight girl Sandhya in the film, which released in February, touched many hearts.
“The film was more like an achievement for me because this was something which I always wanted to do. My personal life hasn’t changed much post the film. Dum Laga Ke Haisha gave me a lot of love, respect and acceptance. It makes me happy that people are recognising me and they speak a lot about my work,” she said. Asked whether she was apprehensive about making her debut with a role which was unconventional, Bhumi said, “When I read the script I was completely blown away. I was looking at the bigger picture. I was getting what I love. I fell in love with Sandhya’s character. ”
