In the new crime thriller Bhakshak, set to premiere on Netflix, Bhumi Pednekar stars as Vaishali Singh, a journalist hell-bent on uncovering a horrific crime. The trailer, which dropped today, gives viewers a taste of her strong performance once again. Based on real events, the film would supposedly enthral viewers with a story of courage and the pursuit of justice.

A glimpse into Vaishali Singh's quest for justice

The film chronicles the adventures of a courageous journalist who investigates a girls' shelter and finds disturbing information about the residents. The trailer gives a glimpse into Bhumi's character fighting against the heinous crime, not just with society and the perpetrators but also with her own people, who refuse to acknowledge her mission for justice. 

Check out the trailer below:


Bhakshak does bring yet another hard-hitting story by Red Chillies Entertainment, especially after Love Hostel, which premiered on ZEE5 in 2022. The film is likely to pique the interest of viewers who are fans of this genre.

Gaurav Verma and Gauri Khan produced Bhakhshak's formidable ensemble, which Pulkit directed, featuring Sanjay Mishra, Aditya Srivastava, Sai Tamhankar, and Bhumi Pednekar.

Bhakshak's personal significance

As a filmmaker, Pulkit finds great fulfilment in creating the journey of an investigative journalist as she seeks justice and the truth. Reflecting on his work, the director said that Bhakshak is deeply personal to him. Pulkit hopes this film becomes a hit on Netflix and reaches people all over the world.

Throughout her journey as an actor, Bhumi has always gravitated towards clutter-breaking films that surpass the conventional narrative. Among these films is Bhakshak, which ranks among the most important in her career. This has been an eye-opening ordeal, and the actor is appreciative that brave writers and characters like Vaishali Singh bring these stories to life. Because Bhumi thinks stories have the power to alter lives, she strives to cast herself in roles that challenge norms and prejudices while also sparking conversations that lead to positive social change. It is with much anticipation that the actor looks forward to sharing the fruits of their effort with viewers all around the globe. Bhakshak is a monumental film.

Watch Bhakshak on Netflix on February 9, 2024.
