Since his debut in “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”, the transformation of Bhumi Pednekar, both in terms of his career and his style, has been complete. So much so that the actor is now the ambassador of the clothing brand, Raisin.

And he feels that there is now more acceptance of the personality and style of an individual.

Your mantra? “Your style is an extension of your personality.”

A Mumbai education exposed her to much more.

“I am a child of the 1990s and globalization had just hit us. So there were many brands that came to Bombay first. Bombay is a place where you have a mix of culture. You have people from different parts of the country. Different parts of the world. they come and live here. Then you automatically expose yourself to many different tastes and cultures and I feel very lucky for that, “Bhumi told IANSlife by phone.

After gaining weight to play an overweight woman in “Dum ..” (2015) with Ayushmann Khurana, Bhumi made headlines with his thin avatar post that lost 21 kilos in just four months.

“Honestly, winning and losing were very difficult. Winning sounds like it’s a lot of fun, but then you have to eat a certain amount of food that you’re not used to eating. Losing weight, in fact, makes you feel better because you know you’re getting healthier but it requires a lot of discipline.

“I think the first days rather than being physically hard, I think they were mentally difficult. Because just going to the gym every day, eating clean, disconnecting from outside life, is the only way I can reduce the amount of weight I did and in the time frame I did. ”

Agreeing that Bollywood and society now accept more body types, Bhumi said it is a very welcome change.

“Now you see that the big brands use mannequins of different sizes and there is no particular sample size that existed before. Today different body types are celebrated, if you have curves, you are famous, if you do not have curves and you are born extremely thin that also is celebrated.

“You are really depriving your body of very important nutrition that is required especially when you are growing up.

“I think it’s more about accepting oneself and being healthy. The truth is that we are not all created in the same way. God has given us different body types and different body structures and we must respect that. Indian women are curves, we are born that way. We can’t change that. I can’t look like a European model that measures 5’9 and all its bones are much smaller. I can’t look like that. The inclusion of all body types is very welcome change. ”

That’s not all, Bhumi continues to tell young girls that starving to achieve a certain aspect is not worth it.

“Today there is knowledge about health and nutrition. People are very conscious. People really care. The health and nutrition industry is really booming. Go get your knowledge, be realistic about it, go train, eat healthy food, eat organic food, eat clean, eat at home. You don’t need to starve yourself, “the 30-year-old shared.

On the work front, Bhumi’s calendar is aligned with the upcoming releases with “Saand ki Aankh” in Diwali, “Bala” in November and “Pati Patni Aur Woh” in December. He also has “Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare” in February next year.
