Bhumi  Pednekar was thrown out of Film School, Know why

Toilet movie actress Bhumi Pednekar in a recent interview talks about how she was thrown out of a film school at the age of 18. She studied acting at Subhash Ghai’s film institute, Whistling Woods in Mumbai. Recalling how her life changed after the incident, she revealed how it made her work harder than before.

Bhumi Pednekar said, “In Bombay in (classes) XI and XII, nobody studies. They are only sitting and eating vada pav. I was thrown out for my attendance. I was just partying away. I am glad I was thrown out because that day, I was shaken. I was like, my father is p****d off, my mum trusted me and I f****d up. That’s when someone told me, in Yash Raj Films (YRF) they are looking for an assistant casting director. Once I started working in YRF, I realized that’s what I wanted to do. I worked very hard but I had no idea what I was doing. I was 18.”

Speaking about her education finance, she tells how her mother took an education loan for her acting classes, which her father wasn’t aware of initially. While the loan was paid off by Bhumi herself, she revealed that she started working within a year and a half of being thrown out of her film school.

On the professional front, Bhumi will be next seen with Akshay Kumar in Raksha Bandhan, released on August 11. She also has The Lady Killer alongside Arjun Kapoor, marking their first film together. The film will be directed by Ajay Bahl and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, and Shaailesh R Singh. Besides, Bhumi is also a part of Govinda Mera Naam, Bheed, and Bhakshak.
