All heads turned and conversations stopped mid-sentence when award-winning actor Bhumi Pednekar made a stunning entry at the Jio MAMI Film Festival in her chic ensemble complete with a green half-n-half saree with stylish velvet fabric and a frilled design. Her risqué halter neck blouse made a bold fashion statement for all the shy ladies wanting to up their game. Well, it’s an old secret in showbiz.
"If you have it then flaunt It." Bhumi oozed confidence. She raised the ‘oomph’ factor to another level. Her minimal makeup, dewy base, rosy cheeks, glossy lips, and highlighted cheekbones complimented her look. However, what struck the right note was her bindaas (daredevil) attitude and Marathi language skills.
As the peeping toms and paparazzi juggled for space and get the perfect shot, some shouted, "Bhumi Ikde Ikde bhug, Bhumi chhan distes (Bhumi look here. You look beautiful)." Bhumi being the vivacious sport, shot back in chaste Marathi, "Ho re baba. Bhagte na mi!" (Yes man, I’ll look at you na!). Instantly, there were peals of laughter and aapli Marathi mulgi (Bhumi) shimmered under the paparazzi flashbulbs.
