Bhumi Pednekar has carved a niche for herself in Bollywood with her career trajectory. The actor starred in four movies last year including Saand Ki Aankh, Sonchiriya, Bala, and Pati Patni Aur Woh. According to the reports, all the movies were either critically lauded or did pretty well at the box office. Bhumi's performance especially has been appreciated by both the film critics and the audience. Not so long ago, Akshay Kumar announced his next project titled Durgavati, in which, Bhumi Pednekar will play the protagonist. If the recent reports are to be believed, Arshad Warsi has been roped in to play the antagonist in the film.
The shooting of Durgavati starring Bhumi Pednekar went on floors in late January 2020. The film was making headlines as there were several speculations being made about the rest of the cast, especially the antagonist. It was earlier reported that Mahie Gill has joined the cast of the film. Now, it has been reported that Arshad Warsi and Karan Kapadia have been roped in by the makers too. Arshad Warsi will be seen playing the antagonist in the film, while Karan Kapadia will be playing the role of the protagonist's fiancee in the film. However, there are no official announcements made about the same yet.
Durgavati is a remake of the Telugu movie of the Anushka Shetty starrer titled Bhaagamathie. However, the director G Ashok, who directed Bhaagamathie will be directing Durgavati too. Bhaagamathie's story revolves around the life of a female IAS officer named Chanchala Reddy, who is imprisoned in a haunted house. Eventually, things get intense when she gets possessed by a spirit.
