She has been seen in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Shubh Mangal Savdhaan, Saand Ki Aankh, Bala, Pati Patni Aur Woh and Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, and many more such critically acclaimed films. But is Bhumi comfortable with the ‘star tag? The actress, who started out as an assistant to Shanoo Sharma, the casting director of Yash Raj Films, said, “I am a little shy to call myself a star.” She insists she is an actor “who has received a lot of love”. Bhu- mi added: “I think the definition of stardom has changed across different generations. But yes, I am grateful that my films are appreciated and people love me and I am going to continue doing whatever I do, on and off screen.” Hindi cinema is known for its bigger-than-life films, but Bhumi has stood her ground on featuring only in ‘message-driven’ films and calls herself fortunate. “I have always been keen that my films should have a positive message along with entertainment, as that’s what cinema is primarily meant to do,” Bhumi said.

If someone is spending two hours watching a film, or my piece of content, it must lead to some kind of a positive change in their mindset.” Climate warrior As a public figure, Bhumi is doing her bit for the world too. In 2019, she launched the ‘Climate Warrior’ campaign to raise awareness on environmental protection and global warming. So, is it time for Hindi cinema to raise issues related to climate change and sustainable lifestyles? “Yes! I feel it’s high time that Hindi cinema starts showing a sustainable way of living in their films.” She added: “I personally would like to believe that we are more conscious than other industries, but I still feel we aren’t doing enough.” — IANS Soon, biopic on Sourav Ganguly Luv Films on Thursday announced a biopic on former Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly.
