Bollywood actor Bhumi Pednekar has been on a roll. Right from her debut film ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, to Toilet – Ek Prem Katha to Shubh Mangal Saavdhan to Lust Stories, the actor has been standing out with her diverse choice of subjects.

The actor has made a place in people’s heart with her performances and choosing films that are offbeat and socially relevant. The 30-year-old actor will be next seen in Alankrita Shrivastava’s ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’, co-starring Konkana Sharma.

I loved her Lipstick Under My Burkha. It was brilliant, moving and captivating and Alankrita is just an outstanding person and a director,” Bhumi said.

The ‘Bala’ actor added that she loved collaborating with Alankrita.

“She has got everything out of me and I loved every second of my collaboration with her,” Bhumi said.
