The trailer of Sonchiriya is out and many are appreciating the rebellious portrayal of leading stars Bhumi Pednekar and Sushant Singh Rajput. For Bhumi, it was liberating to work in the Abhishek Chaubey directorial as she feels it has a great reflection of what is happening in the country.
“The expectations are extremely high. Abhishek Chaubey is one of the finest directors we have in the country and he has brought about such a beautiful and power-packed crew together,” Bhumi told IANS.
“It was very liberating for me to be a part of this film as it’s a beautiful story of what the society can do to human life and how they come victorious out of it. There’s a great reflection on what is happening in the country. It’s hard-hitting but at the same time it’s very relevant and important. I think it has some really great performances and a lot of craft. I am very proud of this film and it’s a privilege to be a part of it,” added the actor.
In Sonchiriya, which also stars Manoj Bajpayee and Ashutosh Rana, Bhumi essays the role of a dacoit. The actress feels contemporary cinema is ‘100%’ revolutionary. “I truly feel that the work my colleagues and I are doing are a part of revolution in films. I feel really fortunate that these characters are coming my way. Be it my first film or any other film, they all will be remembered for a very long time.
"I am not saying that because I am a part of these films but because these stories are important. They are a part of change. It’s such a great time for female actors and content to thrive and it’s going to keep getting better,” she said.
