2019 will be action-packed for Bhumi Pednekar. Coming up first is ‘Sonchiriya’ that has her playing a girl from Chambal, followed by the quirky comedy ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare.’ In the meantime, she has started shooting for ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ based on India’s oldest woman shooters Chando and Prakshi Tomar, alongside Taapsee Pannu.

The star has also been roped in for the remake of ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ (1978) in which she will play the role originally played by Vidya Sinha, reports DNA India.

When asked how she picks her roles Pednekar replied, “I think these scripts choose me. Also, I am a strong person and I consciously relate to films empowering women. That’s because I come from a family which believes in it. I naturally go for such characters. The makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Sonchiriya have shown faith in me because of my earlier work. It is so flattering to play distinctive women from different parts of India. I am proud of that.”

The star also has no problem in not being Bollywood’s quintessential glamour girl. “I am a Mumbai girl, I love vanity, getting ready, and spending time taking care of myself. In front of the camera, I enjoy playing characters that are unlike me. It’s more challenging as I have to do a lot more work.”

Pednekar also expressed her joy in joining Karan Johar’s period film ‘Takht.’ She said, “Yes, and it’s a dream come true. For anybody who wants to be a part of movies, working in a Karan Johar film is a dream. It’s such an honour. I have high regard for him — he is a visionary, who changed the game in the fraternity. Also, I will be sharing share screen space with brilliant actors like Ranveer (Singh), Vicky (Kaushal), Kareena (Kapoor Khan), and Anil (Kapoor) sir and Jahnvi (Kapoor).”
