Young Bollywood star Bhumi Pednekar is heading to Rishikesh after wrapping the Dehradun schedule of her next film, ‘Badhaai Do’.
She is thrilled to be shooting in Rishikesh because she feels it has only brought her enormous good luck! Bhumi reveals, “Rishikesh holds a very special place in my heart and it has been incredibly lucky for me! I shot in this most beautiful place for my debut ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, then for ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ and both these films went on to become huge hits.”
“Now, I will be shooting in Rishikesh again for ‘Badhaai Do’ and I’m certain that it will become my lucky charm for the third time,” she said.
The versatile actress says visiting Rishikesh will evoke a lot of nostalgia for her. Bhumi says, “I’m really excited to soak in this city because there are so many memories attached to it. I have always received so much love from the people of Rishikesh every time I have visited and I’m looking forward to their warm hospitality again. It’s been a while. I can’t wait to go back and relive all the nostalgia, all the love, all the incredible local food of Rishikesh.”
The movie is a sequel to the National Award winning hit ‘Badhaai Ho!’. ‘Badhaai Do’ is directed by Harshavardhan Kulkarni and written by Akshat Ghildial and Suman Adhikary. The movie features Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar, who will be seen sharing the screen for the first time.
The promising entertainer will see Rajkummar essaying the role of a tough cop at a Mahila Police Thana, while Bhumi Pednekar will play the role of a PT teacher.
