‘My character will shatter the docile wife stereotype in Indian cinema’ : Bhumi Pednekar

The actor plays modern day housewife in Pati Patni Aur Woh

Bhumi Pednekar is definitely making her mark brilliantly through her choice of cinema. She has a distinct voice in Bollywood and always picks characters that tend to leave a thought behind. She plays the wife, Vedika, in the upcoming romantic comedy Pati, Patni Aur Woh and her character is a sharp contrast to the wives that we have seen in Hindi cinema over the ages.

Bhumi explains saying, “Vedika is not represented as your traditional, docile wife stereotype who is always seen prioritising her husband and his needs over hers in our cinema. She loves her husband to bits but she loves herself too and strives to achieve the balance that any modern girl seeks in her relationship/marriage. I adore that about her.“

The versatile actor adds, “Vedika in Pati, Patni Aur Woh will shatter all such age-old presentation of the wife in cinema and present a bold, young girl who is feisty, lives life on her own terms and isn’t afraid to confront her husband if needed and at the same time be his emotional anchor. I agreed to say yes to this project because it represents the modern Indian girl who doesn’t forget her self-respect and individuality post marriage.”

Bhumi created a flutter on the internet as with her trailer as she boldly told the hero, Kartik Aryan, that she enjoys ‘sex’ – again a distinct departure from how heroines have been presented to be coy on screen and the hero is presented as the alpha male archetype.

She says, “If you see Vedika’s introduction in the trailer, even though she is clearly in an arranged marriage scenario, she doesn’t hesitate to express that she is a passionate human being. These are all very empowering qualities for any character. Vedika speaks her mind, she doesn’t hesitate to express and doesn’t care about the judgements that will be passed on her.”

For Bhumi, Vedika will always be a character incredibly close to her heart. “She loves being who is she and won’t ever compromise to become someone else. That’s what bowled me over about Vedika. She is real and extremely relatable to today’s young women and I think that’s the reason why people are connecting with Vedika in such a manner,” Bhumi says.

With Pati, Patni Aur Woh opening brilliantly, Bhumi Pednekar is set to make a rare mark in the industry. Bhumi will be one of the very few actresses who has actually had three successes in a row and that too in a calendar year.

Pati, Patni Aur Woh is riding on hugely positive word of mouth and is definitely set to become a hit especially with the film making a weekend business of Rs 38cr

. Her last film Bala in which she highlighted the societal stereotyping of India’s obsession for fair skin has gone on to become a blockbuster. Her Diwali release, Saand Ki Aankh also held its ground despite a three film release day with Housefull 4 and Made in China and emerged victorious as the obvious second best. This is definitely a big achievement by an actress in the recent times.

Bhumi says, “It has been an incredible year for me as an artist. I have done such variety of roles that it has been creatively satisfying. I hope Pati Patni Aur Woh becomes a big hit to cap my year on a hugely positive note. I have only strives to give something new to audiences in theatres and I thank them for their support and love towards my films and acting.”

Kedarnath received an exceptional response from the audience across quarters owing to the gripping storyline and crackling chemistry of the lead actors Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput. The film also marked the silver screen debut of actress Sara Ali Khan.

In the film, Sushant essays the role of a cheerful and hard-working Muslim pithoo who carries the devotees on his back to the Kedarnath shrine for livelihood, while Sara essays the role of a bubbly Hindu devotee who falls in love with her bearer. It is intriguing to see is how love blossoms between them, get hit by caste barriers and eventually gets tangled with the devastating Uttarakhand floods that hit the state in 2013

Produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP and Pragya Kapoor’s Guy In the Sky Pictures, Kedarnath is directed by Abhishek Kapoor. The film released on 7th December 2018 to massice critical acclaim and performed well at the box office.
