Talented young Bollywood star, Bhumi Pednekar, will be seen in the conspiracy thriller Durgamati and she admits that the film was a physically challenging project. From the trailer, it is evident that Bhumi plays two characters in the film – Chanchal Chauhan and the spirit that apparently possesses her, Durgamati. Bhumi claims that playing the character Durgamati was physically daunting.
“Durgamati has really stretched me as an actor. Physically it was a tough film to pull off because of the genre and also my role in the film. For me, Durgamati was definitely my most physically challenging film ever and I loved every bit of it,” says Bhumi, who can be seen being flung around and suffering violent convulsions when Chanchal becomes Durgamati in the trailer.
The versatile actress, who is now a producer’s favourite because she can deliver powerful performances and also pull people to theatres, lays down the reasons why horror, as a genre, is incredibly tough.
Bhumi says, “Honestly, this genre is very challenging for any actor because you have to build the character brick by brick and you will either win over audience or you will fail because you took it too far. The horror and spookiness in such films come from the acting and you have to create these elements with how you emote, how you physically communicate the horror to audience – so it’s not easy.”
