Inspired by real-life incidents, the film 'Bhakshak,' featuring actress Bhumi Pednekar in the lead role, sheds light on the grim realities within a girls' shelter home, exposing the harsh truths hidden behind closed doors. Released on Netflix, the movie has garnered acclaim from critics for its raw portrayal of the subject matter. As Bhumi enjoys the film's success, she recently disclosed her aspirations to venture into a Hollywood project soon.

Bhumi and her Hollywood dream

In a chat with News 18 recently, Bhumi Pednekar, 34, underlined what she wishes to pursue professionally in her career ahead. She told the news outlet, “I do have Hollywood aspirations. I feel it is the best time for artists to be ambitious because the world is now a melting pot of cultures, of diversity, and authenticity. Actors now can have a very active career internationally because of the kind of films and series being made or the kind of roles being written for them.”

Bhumi further expressed her observation that actresses with brown skin tones are increasingly gaining recognition on the international stage, citing examples like Ambika Mod from Netflix's "One Day." She emphasized the significance of seeing an Indian-origin actress in a prominent lead role within a successful global series, which has resonated with audiences worldwide. According to her, casting actors from India or the subcontinent for characters from that region adds authenticity to the portrayal, enhancing the on-screen representation of cultural nuances and diversity.

Bhumi Pednekar and her Bollywood journey

In her upcoming project, Bhumi Pednekar will co-star with Rakul Preet Singh and share the screen with Arjun Kapoor in the comedy titled 'Meri Patni Ka Remake'. Reports indicate that a significant portion of the film will be filmed in the UK, featuring Arjun Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar. Speculations suggest that the project will be helmed by Mudassar Aziz, although official confirmation is awaited to validate these reports. Time will reveal the progression of this exciting development.
