Actress Bhumi Pednekar, who is preparing for her upcoming release Badhaai Do, has said that her character in the film is very different from her as she does not enjoy many of the privileges that we take for granted.

Commenting on her character, a lesbian sports instructor who marries a gay cop (played by Rajkummar Rao), Pednekar said, “She’s someone whose life is very different from mine and it’s not because of our sexual preferences, it’s more because of the choices one makes in life. I am one who has lived her life in freedom. My character does not have that privilege.”

Bhumi Pednekar continued: “It wasn’t about how I would feel about other people or the character I’m playing. It was more about how I was going to live my life that I couldn’t handle much. It’s not as easy as going to the gym. It is more of an internal process.”

Speaking about her character’s appearance, Bhumi Pednekar said: “The director and our team members were very clear that when we look at the woman, she should look like someone who is vulnerable. So I haven’t shied away from wearing makeup. I wanted to get away from the stereotype. I just wanted to be a woman and when the public is looking at me they shouldn’t be looking at my character’s sexual preference. That’s how I wanted to play her.”
