Bhumi Padnekar wins her first international award

Bhumi Pedneker made her debut in Bollywood, as an overweight bride of Ayushmann Khurrana’s 2015 blockbuster, Dum Laga Ke Haisha. The 30-year-old actress has garned a quick fame in the B-town for her keenness in experimenting with her looks and characters. In fact, her upcoming release, Saand Ki Aankh co-starring Taapsee Pannu will also feature the actress as an old sharp shooter from Haryana.

Recently, Bhumi Pedneker attended the Busan International Film Festival for her another film Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitaare, where she has been honored as the Face of Asia. The newcomer actress and former assistant casting director of Yash Raj Films was elated at the winning. She humbly received the award and said, “I am humbled and very touched that my work has resonated with audiences and critics in Busan. It’s my first international win so I am very proud of it. I have aspired to act in films that have something important to say and have worked sincerely to deliver convincing performances. I hope to be part of brilliant cinema that will be liked and remembered fondly in future. I would want to thank my entire cast, my director Alankrita Shrivastava and my producers Ekta Kapoor and Ruchikaa Kapoor for this great opportunity.”

Meanwhile, Tushar Hiranandani’s Saand Ki Aankh is all set to hit the theaters on October 25, 2019.
