Cleaned Seema Pahwa’s house for a month, made tea: Bhumi Pednekar on her training for ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’


Bhumi Pednekar, who just saw the release of her latest film Dolly Kitty aur Woh Chamakte Sitare on OTT will be the next guest on Neha Dhupia’s show No Filter Neha Season 5.  The episode which will air soon is a cracking one as Bhumi spilled the beans on her film choices, her hectic shooting schedules and bizarre training workshops.

Bhumi, who used to work with casting director Shanoo Sharma at Yash Raj Films before landing her first film opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in Dum Laga Ke Haisha recalled the time she trained under co-star Seema Pahwa. She said, “For this one, Seema Pahwa, who is such a brilliant actor, she played my mother in the film and we worked a lot together. So, it’s like the holy trinity - Ayushmann, me and her. Whenever we get together, mostly our films work, the luck has been very good so far.”

The actress further added, “She was training me and the first day I met her she’s like ‘Kal Salwar kameez pehenke mere ghar aa jana’. I reached her house and voh mujhse jhadu karwa rahi he, chai banwa rahi he. For a month, I have cleaned her house. For a month! I kind of realized okay this is what real life is, until now I was living in a bubble, I need to kind of get out of my shield and experience life. And she gave me that opportunity.
