For Bhumi, her blockbuster film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha will always stay extremely close to her heart. The film saw her being cast opposite superstar Akshay Kumar and spoke about the government’s Swachh Bharat (Clean India) mission and also highlighted the need for women empowerment. This film was a biopic of Anita Narre from Madhya Pradesh, who left her husband’s house as her in-laws didn’t have a toilet and Bhumi portrayed the role of a determined and progressive young woman from a small town with elan. She won accolades for her performance and won several top Best Actress awards.

Bhumi has constructed a hostel and new toilet for the girls of the ashram and this facility will be inaugurated on the occasion of Toilet’s 2nd anniversary!” reveals a source.

“The Morena-based school was established in 1992 to fight the prostitution of girls in the valley. The school looks to open up job opportunities for the children thus empowering them and also providing a better future to them. Bhumi has been supporting the school with funds and gifts for about two years and she has also been promoting the need for sanitation among girls in the valley. Bhumi discovered Abhyudaya when she visited the valley for her acclaimed film Sonchiriya’s shoot. She was moved deeply and instantly connected with their cause,” the informer adds.

When contacted, Bhumi confirmed saying, “Abhyudaya Ashram is working for an extremely good cause. I have and will always continue doing my bit for them and the girls of the Chambal valley. In my heart, Chambal is a second home for me and I keep going back to Abhyudaya to see how the girls are doing. They have become my family and I intend to promote all necessary and important messages about sanitation, education, empowerment and equal rights of girls among the women of the valley.

Shalini Pandey had mesmerised everyone with her infectious charm and acting prowess in the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy and we can confirm that her big Bollywood launch will be as Ranveer Singh’s heroine in the much-anticipated Jayeshbhai Jordaar releasing next year. Shalini debuts with this Yash Raj Films production whose storyline celebrates women empowerment. The talented young actress will also be managed by YRF going forward.

YRF has always discovered supremely talented outsiders like Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Bhumi Pednekar, etc who have become stars in their own right. So, one can imagine that Shalini will definitely be an actress to watch out for given YRF’s trust in backing her as the leading lady opposite a powerhouse performer like Ranveer.

The producer of Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Maneesh Sharma, who has cast Shalini in the film speaks highly of this 25-year old actress. “Our script and the vision of the film demanded a fresh face for the leading lady’s part. Shalini’s audition was so spontaneous and nuanced that we knew immediately that she was the right person for the part. She is an assured actor with a refreshing presence, and we have real confidence in backing her talent. She’s really going to catch your attention in Jayeshbhai Jordaar!” says Maneesh.

Shalini started her career as a theatre actor in Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh) before working in the Telugu industry. Despite not knowing Telugu fluently, Shalini prepared herself thoroughly to do her own dubbing in Arjun Reddy and was widely appreciated for her performance. She has also worked in the cult classic Mahanati.

About her big ticket Bollywood debut Shalini says, “Being given the opportunity to be signed on as a talent and also being cast under the Yash Raj Films banner is truly any artist’s dream. I’ve been blessed with this huge chance to show my mettle in the Hindi film industry and I’m incredibly thankful for it. I’m also very fortunate to be sharing screen space with Ranveer Singh who is one of the biggest superstars of our generation and also one of the most versatile actors too. I’m thrilled about being paired opposite to him and this inspires me to prepare myself thoroughly to deliver the best.”
