In Dum Laga Ke Haisha
Dum Laga Ke Haisha is a Hindi film which has released on 27 February, 2015. Debutante Bhumi Pednekar gave over 100 auditions for ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’. The story revolves around Sandhya Verma and Prem Prakash Tiwari. Sandhya is an influential school teacher in Haridwar but is upset with her excessive weight of 85 kgs. Ayushmann and Bhumi’s chemistry was effortlessly charming and they make the silliness of these old love stories work, without losing sight of their absurdity.
About her role she said, “Like Sandhya, I was never ashamed of my plus size. I was a confident person. It doesn’t matter what you are on the outside, it’s what you are from within that counts. Everyone faces rejection at some point. Everyone is a Sandhya somewhere. Not that my size prevented me from getting attention. Also whether you’re fat or thin, the way you see yourself, is the way you will be perceived by others.”
Bhumi Pednekar has lost 27 kgs since last December and she thoroughly enjoyed her weight loss journey. She has came out with #LoseitLikeBhumi series on Instagram a few months ago. With this series, she shares some practical and hands-on fitness goals. This time, she has come up with an ideal breakfast recipe. According to Bhumi, eating a lot, especially in the morning, is very important. She has her own dietary plan which she shared on her Instagram account.
Bhumi starts her mornings with a glass of warm or detox water. Later takes muesli with skimmed milk and flax or sunflower seeds. One hour before gymming she takes whole-wheat bread with 2 egg white omelets and a fruit. After her gym she takes 5 boiled egg whites, which is a must and should for her. This diet made fatty Bhumi into slim and trim actress.
She is meeting directors and very soon she will announce her next project, which will show her in a completely different avatar. She said, “I am meeting a lot of people and reading a lot of scripts. Very soon, I will be announcing my second project. Surprisingly, I am not getting roles where the makers look at me like Sandhya and that is a motivation for me. The roles I am getting are diverse and amazing. I happy that I am not getting pigeon-holed after my first film.”
Bhumi used to work as a casting assistant in India’s most prestigious banners Yash Raj Films under casting director Shanoo Sharma but never letting anyone know of her secret passion. She secretly went through rounds of acting classes and workshops but never graduated to facing the camera.
Bhumi said, “I used to tell Shanoo that I want to direct films. One day, she saw me taking auditions and asked me why I am wasting my time taking auditions. She wanted me to become an actress. I thought she was just being nice.”
One day she got a call from Shanoo that she had been selected for the film and coincidentally it was also Bhumi’s birthday. Bhumi had to gain 12 Kg weight for the role.
