Bhumi Pednekar keen to play freedom fighter

Actress Bhumi Pednekar says she desires to play the role of a freedom fighter.

“I am such a greedy actor. I want to do all kinds of roles. I want to run around trees or anything. Of course, material has to be good. However, I would love to play a freedom fighter, it is something I am dying to do. If somebody is making a movie on freedom fighter, please take me,” said the “Dum Laga Ke Haisha” actress.

As such, she doesn’t want to limit herself to the kind of films she wants to do.

“I don’t have a favourite genre as I have done only one film. I do not know what kind of films I will do. I literally go by my instinct while I read a script. As an actor, I think I should be capable of doing every kind of film. I don’t want to stick to a certain kind of film,” she said.

Next up, she will be seen in “Manmarziyan”, in which she has been teamed up with Ayushmann Khuranna once again after “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”.

Asked why she took time to sign her second film, she said: “I read many scripts, but I needed something that clicks. ‘Manmarziyan’ is a classic love story that is very relevant to today’s time. Today even in a relationship there is a shade of grey. It shows the most real aspect of a relationship.”

Talking about her role, Bhumi said: “My character’s name is Rumi. a Punjabi girl from Amritsar. You may see shades of Bhumi in the character.”
