She shared, “I want to explore all genres and put up superlative performances in each one of them. As an artiste, that is my personal ambition. I want to be in the best films that are being made in India today and put up diverse performances that test me, push me to the max. I don’t want to make a genre or a type of film my niche. I want to do it all and try and excel in every project that I take up. ‘Durgamati’, for me, was one such project.”
Further talking about ‘Durgamati’ she added, “I knew it(Durgamati) will help me push the envelope and I will get to expand myself as an artiste. It was definitely a huge learning experience for me. Horror is a very tough genre because you have to be convincing to an audience who knows that what they are seeing is not real. So, the performances have to carry the film and deliver outstanding entertainment to audiences. I wanted to experience this genre and I was sure that I would be able to deliver a solid performance.”
Meanwhile, the trailer and first song of the film is out and has so far received a good response. Looking forward to its release in December, she revealed, “I’m very hopeful that audiences will give me as much love as they have given me for all my performances so far when ‘Durgamati’ releases. I consider myself fortunate that people have always supported and validated my performances and film choices.”
‘Durgamati’ is the Hindi remake of the Telugu hit ‘Bhaagamathie‘ starring Anushka Shetty. Apart from Bhumi Pednekar in the lead, it also features Arshad Warsi, Jisshu Sengupta, Mahie Gill, and others in key roles.
