Bhumi Pednekar has made some critically acclaimed choices in her acting career. Bhumi reportedly accepts bold and extravagant roles that some novice actors might be afraid to take. After her debut movie, Dum Laga Ke Haisha opposite Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi went through an intense workout regime and diet plan to shred her extra weight. Now, the newcomer is going to be seen playing the role of sharpshooter Dadi Chandro Tomar in Saand Ki Aankh. 

Dadi Chandro Tomar has been the national shooting champion 25 times. The 87-year-old shooter held a pistol for the first time when she was 60 years old. Chandro Dadi is famously known as 'Revolver Dadi' because of her excellent shooting skills. The mother of six has proven that age is just a number and it is never too late for anything.
