Bhumi Pednekar has said when she started her career in the film industry, she would get affected by trolls.” But now, I don’t really care… I’ve realized that my happiness depends on me,” she added.
Bhumi said that if she paid heed to the one negative comment among so many more compliments, she would be ‘really stupid’. She added that she has learnt to shrug off the trolling.
“If I listen to that one bad opinion then I have to be really stupid because I have ten people telling me really good things. Maybe early on, I tried looking for validation through my Instagram or social media but now I don’t do it. I feel like our world is actually very large, especially for actors. When you see a film that does so well at the box office, it doesn’t really tally with your social media numbers. Or vice versa. I don’t take it seriously,” she added.
Currently, Bhumi is shooting in Dehradun for Badhaai Do, a standalone sequel to 2018 hit Badhaai Ho. She will play a PT teacher in the film, which is directed by HarshVardhan Kulkarni and also stars Rajkummar Rao as a cop. She has been sharing pictures from the sets on Instagram, introducing their characters, Sumi and Shardul.
