Bhumi Pednekar discovers a similarity with her character in Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare

Like everyone else, Bhumi Pednekar is also discovering new aspects to herself in the lockdown. She was quite surprised to discover an uncanny similarity with her character in the film Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare. While at home, Bhumi found her long-lost scrapbook from school and that triggered some fond memories for her.

Sharing the moment the actress said, “There is so much time at hand that you can use it to declutter and it is not only your space but your mind too. I was cleaning a trunk in my old house and I came across a scrapbook from my school! My first DVD audition tape from my acting college, the first script I wrote. I was so nostalgic. My character in Dolly Kitty does something similar in the film with her scrapbook and this moment was so uncanny. There are so many of your life experiences you go through again as an actor and that’s what I love about cinema.” 


Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is Bhumi’s upcoming film which is directed by Alankrita Shrivastava and also co-stars Konkana Sen Sharma. The film has earned Bhumi several international accolades at prestigious film festivals including the Face of Asia award at Busan.

Talking about life in lockdown, Bhumi said, “The first week was so weird and my room is towards the road and usually noisy but now it’s so silent but slowly in 2-3 days it was taken over by the birds chirping. The first week of the lockdown was manic, I mean all we used to do was talk about the virus, we still do but now we’ve figured out a way to deal with it. Be more empathetic about what so many people are going through.”


Bhumi takes over her house post 6 pm every day and lets her hair down with her mother, Sumitra and sister Samik. She added, “I love dressing up my room and my house – there is always some music, I light up the candles. So, post 6 pm I take over the house because for me it’s a way of survival. You have to be positive and you have to spread positivity.”
