Bhumi Pednekar is one of the most talented actresses in Bollywood. The diva never misses a chance to leave her fans in awe of her acting chops. Bhumi made her debut in Bollywood with the movie, Dum Laga Ke Haisha. The diva was seen in several other movies, such as Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Bala, Pati Patni Aur Woh, and so many others. Bhumi was last seen in the movies like The Lady Killer and Thank You For Coming. Apart from being a tremendous actress, Bhumi's fashion regimen often grabs the eyeballs. The diva often leaves us stunned with her sartorial picks at several events. Recently, she revealed how much it costs her to attend any event or award shows.
In a recent conversation with Ranveer Allahbadia, Bhumi Pednekar revealed that after making her debut, she bagged several awards as a debutant. The diva also added that she had attended almost 15 events after her first film. Talking more about the same, Bhumi stated that for the first two years, her stylist didn't charge a penny from her. She went on to add how she used to take her friend's cars to any award show or event.
Bhumi Pednekar shared that styling is a very big thing and an expensive process. Talking more about it, Bhumi mentioned that the whole process, including car rental, costs around Rs. 75-80K, which is the basic. The actress also expressed her fear over telling her mom about the budget of the same. Sharing that she still hustles just like she used to do back then, Bhumi mentioned:
"Styling is a very big thing and it’s a very expensive process. If you think about it, your styling will cost around Rs 15K to 20K, the car rental will be around Rs 15k to 20k and hair and makeup another Rs 20K. For a regular person spending Rs 75k to 80k for an event, which is basic, it’s a lot. How can I go to my mother and say do this? I hustled then and I hustle now for different things.”
In the same interview, Bhumi stated how she would not mind using her four-year-old car for another few years, too. Bhumi Pednekar also expressed her love for her work. The diva mentioned that with time, she got to understand what kind of an actress she is, and she enjoys her craft and adores every bit of it. Bhumi said:
"Over time I understood what kind of an actor I am. I love my craft. I enjoy it a lot.”
Earlier, in an interview with Mashable, Bhumi opened up about her early career. The diva mentioned that her first check was from YRF (Yash Raj Films) and it was Rs. 7K, as an assistant casting director. For those who chipped in late, Bhumi has previously worked as an assistant casting director for six long years.
Bhumi further added that she offered her first paycheck to her mom, who still keeps the same with her. Bhumi also added how most of her salary went into the repayments of the student loans she had.
