On
being
asked
if
she
had
second
thoughts
about
taking
up
this
role,

told
India
Today
that
she
didn’t
doubt
her
choice
after
she
agreed
to
be
a
part
of
this
film.

Bhumi Pednekar On Badhaai Do: The Humour Is Not Degrading; It's Not At The Expense Of LGBTQ+ CommunityBhumi

The
Humour
Is
Not
Degrading;
It’s
Not
At
The
Expense
Of
LGBTQ+
Community

The
actress
was
quoted
as
saying,
“Yes,
that’s
not
my
sexual
preference,
but
is
my
sexual
preference
all
that
I
am
made
up
of?
This
is
exactly
what
the
film
speaks
about.
I
am
an
actor
and
I
am
playing
a
character.
Why
should
only
a
queer
woman
who
has
a
certain
sexual
preference
like
my
character
be
considered
for
the
role?”

She
further
added,
“I
am
somebody
who
has
worked
hard
and
there
is
a
certain
amount
of
talent
that
comes
with
me,
then
why
do
I
not
deserve
this
part
any
more
or
less
than
somebody
else
(whose
sexual
preference
is
different
than
mine)?
I
mean,
how
is
that
fair?”

Badhaai Do Actress Chum Darang Says The Tag Of Playing Bhumi Pednekar's Love Interest Didn't Bother HerBadhaai

Love
Interest
Didn’t
Bother

Meanwhile,
Bhumi’s
co-star
Chum
Darang
too
in
a
recent
interview
said
that
she
had
no
inhibitions
about
playing
her
lover
in
the
film.

In
the
same
interview,
Bhumi
was
also
asked
if
she
feels
films
in
the
south
have
a
better
subject
matter
than
Bollywood.
To
this,
the
actress
replied
that
she
doesn’t
think
so
and
added
that
the
film
industry
has
become
very
pan
India.

She
said
that
it
feels
like
it’s
unfair
to
take
away
any
credibility
from
Hindi
films
and
that
she
finds
it
amusing
when
people
ask
this
question.

“We
are
an
industry
that
churns
out
a
lot
of
movies
in
a
year.
We
have
pan-India
stars
today.
We
have
actors
from
the
Hindi
film
industry
who
work
in
various
films
down
South
and
the
idea
is
that
art
is
one,”
the
actress
told
the
portal.

Coming
back
to

Badhaai
Do
,
the
film
revolves
around
the
theme
of
lavender
marriage
(a
marriage
between
a
man
and
a
woman
for
the
purpose
of
hiding
their
homosexuality).

Helmed
by
Harshavardhan
Kulkarni,

Badhaai
Do

is
slated
to
hit
the
theatrical
screens
on
February
11,
2022.
