Actress Bhumi Pednekar is happy that fans enjoy her on-screen pairing with actor Ayushmann Khurrana in films ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ and ‘Bala’.
“Ayushmann and I are definitely a fortunate on-screen jodi [pair] to be getting so much love and adulation for audiences. We complement each other as artists and we do have a very good on-screen chemistry. It just shows and I’m just glad that people have loved us as a pair and we have just done three films together,” Pednekar said.
She says both of them have grown as actors during the course of their three films.
“From ‘Dum Lag Ke Haisha’ [dealing with body shaming] to ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhaan’ [about erectile dysfunction] to ‘Bala’ [about premature balding and the stereotyping that dark-skinned women face in India], we have only been paired in films that tackle taboo topics so I think the equity of our pairing lies in bringing out real, societal issues told in the most honest and entertaining manner possible,” she added.
Pednekar says she is thrilled with the box office run that they are having as a pair.
