‘Proud To Be The New YRF Heroine’ : Bhumi Pednekar Gets Nostalgic As ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ Completes 8 Years

Young Bollywood star Bhumi Pednekar burst into the Indian film industry with an incredible performance as an overweight yet supremely confident girl, Sandhya, in ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’. On the film’s 8th anniversary, Bhumi reveals how proud she was to be presented as a body-positive Yash Raj Films’ heroine because her role managed to shatter the industry stereotype of how a heroine should look on screen! It was dubbed as a path-breaking role in changing the way women were looked at in our cinema and Bhumi delivered a performance that is considered as one of the best by a debutant in the history of Indian cinema.  

Bhumi wrote on her social media, “Firsts are always special. Can’t believe it has been 8 years already! I was so fortunate to have started my career as an actor with a film that broke the stereotype of how heroines were presented in Indian cinema.”

She adds, “I was proud to be the new @yrf heroine – real, authentic, proud, righteous, self-reliant, body-positive and a girl who was so so beautiful. Body-shaming is a big social evil. Let’s celebrate every human being’s right to individuality.”
