“It’s been five years and it still feels like a dream! I am not an accidental actor and I say this time and again. This is something that I really wanted to do and I have worked hard to be here. I am born and brought up in Mumbai so that definitely helped because just having some sort of a support system in the city, makes your journey slightly easy,” said Bhumi Pednekar.
“However, because I am not from a film family or I didn’t have any contacts, I was confused at first about how to go about it,” she added. The actress said she had to convince her parents that she wanted to be an actor. “I mustered courage to speak to my parents about it. They weren’t happy. So, I decided to join a film school and the fee was expensive, so I took a loan,” she recalled.—IANS
