When I was growing up, I struggled with feeling confident: Bhumi Pednekar

Young Bollywood star Bhumi Pednekar has been recently owning her style statements and dazzling media and audience with her brilliant sartorial choices. Bhumi has embraced her intrinsic love for fashion as a young Mumbai girl and now, she has been setting the fashion world ablaze look after look!

Bhumi reveals how she turned to fashion to make it her calling card, while having fun at playing dress up! She says, “When I was growing up, I struggled with feeling confident, especially because of the pressure to fit into certain beauty ideals. But instead of letting that define me, I turned to fashion as a form of self-discovery. As I’ve gotten older, my relationship and understanding of beauty and fashion have evolved.”

She adds, “It’s not just about looking good anymore or following trends —it’s about embracing my individuality, expressing my personality, and celebrating what makes me unique. Today, fashion and beauty are a medium through which I can express myself, my emotional canvas and my state of mind!”

Bhumi’s fashion sense is a perfect example of how fashion can be both glamorous and tasteful. “I love experimenting. I just want to have fun with fashion and I think I’m doing this with all my heart which is why people are appreciating my fashion-forward turn. It is good when I can work both ends of the spectrum – from relatable to edgy fashion.” she said.

Bhumi adds, “People tend to box someone and it happened to me too. In maximum films that I have done so far, I have played a girl from a small town and that has set the perception that I can look amazing being this girl next door. I love that people like me that way. But my fashion turn is to shatter that perception and show people who I really am and how I want to be seen. I’m a young, confident Indian woman who is expressing herself through fashion and I’m enjoying the love that my looks are getting!”
