As a performer and entertainer, Bhumi Pednekar chooses to portray characters that are unique and have an emotional side to them. Her character in Bala, for instance, is of a girl who faces social bias because of her complexion.

As part of preparation for role she read about the problems of the women who have faced this bias. Talking about it, she said, “It is disturbing to know that women have also been set on fire due to their dark complexion. All of us have heard of some extreme things that women undergo because of this bias. I’ve never been in favor of promoting fairness enhancement products because in my opinion every skin color deserves same respect in the society.

When I got an opportunity to play a role of woman who is dark in color, I considered it as a chance to delve into what girls go through and their treatment in the society. I know people who have experienced racism in their lives.

A friend of mine who is a lawyer, is judged on the basis of her complexion. People think that she is a spinster due to her complexion, but the truth is she doesn’t care what people have to say about her.

While she plays a role of dark skinned girl in Bala, in Pati, Patni aur Woh she essays the role of woman who knows how beautiful she is. The films were shot in very short intervals from each other in Uttar Pradesh. Bhumi said,” The most difficult thing was to switch between the two roles as both of them had a completely different mindset. Unlike, lot of my previous films, I didn’t have the luxury of time while shooting these films.”

“Bala and Pati, Patni Aur woh both are fun films, but the characters in both of the films are polarizing. In PPAW, I play a sensual and attractive lady who is aware about her beauty while in Bala the lady is dark-skinned and has her own set of insecurities.”, she further stated.
