Aesha |Nov 01, 2019

Actress Bhumi Pednekar said that she is doing a service to society through her message-driven films and that she wants to make a difference.

Bhumi Pednekar is one of the actresses that have managed to carve her name in the industry with unique film choices. Her newest film Bala is going on floors in only one more week and the actress unveiled that it is her way to promote social parity.

What is more, the actress referred to herself as a person who aspires to make a difference.


Finishing her debut role as a chubby girl in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Bhumi will be portraying a dark-skinned girl in Bala. The actress has opened up about her desire to call in question the prejudices of the community about women’s skin color.

The 30-year-old star said, "This is my way of promoting parity in society. I have always wanted my work to speak about societal parity right from my first film Dum Laga Ke Haisha in which I was playing this beautiful, confident, young overweight girl who was comfortable in her own skin.”


Bhumi isn’t a social activist but she called herself someone who cares. She mentioned,

"I am doing something similar in Bala, where I am playing a dark-skinned girl... I am somebody who truly wants to make a difference."

Fair skin is India’s obsession and Bhumi referred to it as an absolute way of objectifying women. Moreover, the actress said to have enough power “that people will listen".

The actress added, "I mean it's the most far reached visual medium to people in our country and I want to do my best to fight prejudice through this medium. This is my service to my society."

Speaking of her depiction in Saand Ki Aankh, she kept on,
