BHUMI PEDNEKAR ON THE HORROR GENRE & DURGAMATI
“IT WILL HELP ME TO EXPAND MYSELF AS AN ARTISTE”
Durgamati The Myth premieres on Amazon Prime Video on 11th December 2020
Actress Bhumi Pednekar is gearing up to captivate us with her amazing performance in Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming release, Durgamati. The film comes from Akshay Kumar’s Good Cape Films and has everyone talking with its intriguing storyline since the trailer came out. The makers are also pulling out all the stops to keep us guessing about what the film might be about and this is Bhumi’s first foray into the horror genre.
Speaking about working on this film, she says, “I knew it (Durgamati) will help me push the envelope and I will get to expand myself as an artist. It was definitely a huge learning experience for me. Horror is a very tough genre because you have to be convincing to an audience who knows that what they are seeing is not real.”
The actress also wants to explore other genres too as she wants to be “Part of the best films that are being made in India”. She makes it clear that she “Does want to make genre or a type of film her niche. I want to do it all and try and excel in every project that I take up. Durgamati, for me, was one such project.”
The film is a remake of the director Ashok’s well-known blockbuster Telugu film Bhaagamathie (2018). Produced by Akshay Kumar and Bhushan Kumar, the horror-thriller is slated to be released on 11th December 2020 by Amazon Prime Video and will be available to 200 countries and territories to stream.
