Mumbai. For young Bollywood star Bhumi Pednekar, there couldn’t be a bigger birthday present than getting a chance to work with a superstar like Akshay Kumar again. Akshay and Bhumi, who worked together in the blockbuster film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, will be seen together again in Aanand L Rai’s ‘Rakshabandhan’.

Bhoomi Pednekar, who is celebrating her birthday today, said, “Earlier we have done a film which was successful, liked by the people and also had an important message for the society. So first of all I think people have similar expectation from our new film. According to me, Akshay sir and I have a feel-good value and people know that if we are working together it will be meaningful as well as entertaining.

He said, “I am a true hearted fan of Akshay sir. He has carved his own path and has reached this height. I really admire many aspects of his journey like he dreamed big and fulfilled it. My story has been similar. I believe that success story is the one that works for people and inspires them.

Bhumi had requested a day off from the shooting of ‘Raksha Bandhan’ which was granted to her by Akshay and Aanand L Rai. She will spend time with her mother Sumitra and sister Samiksha and celebrate birthdays with only those close to her.

The birthday wish of this versatile actress, who runs the social advocacy platform ‘Climate Warrior’, is also special. She says, “Surely I would wish that our generation should be the generation to restore the natural nature of the earth because it is the most important.” I really want us to find solutions to the threats that are posing a challenge to us and take steps to fix it. This can only happen if we change the way we think about our planet. We have to understand that everything is limited and if we do not stop then our story will be completely finished. Regarding my career, I wish to continue doing good work and keep breaking the circle. I don’t want to disappoint the loyal fans I have built over the years.

At present, Bhumi has a long list of good films, which are going to be announced soon. She is working in films like ‘Badhaai Do’ and ‘Mr Lele’ which people have been waiting for a long time. Bhoomi, who did a completely different work in films like ‘Son Chidiya’, ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ ‘Bala’, ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’, ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’, ‘Lust Stories’ feel proud of.

She said, “According to me, I have become an actor at a time when content has overtaken all other aspects of cinema. I realized that the language of cinema is changing. I consider myself lucky to be an active part of that change. I got a huge opportunity to do this through the characters I played.

She further adds, "It was beneficial for me to have that simple girl image around us because people think it is their own story. People saw me in roles that they could understand among themselves. When he saw me on the screen, he said that he knew this girl, it could be his daughter or even niece-niece.
