Bhumi's character from Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has a connection with Hrithik Roshan 

In Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Bhumi Pednekar portrayed the lead role of Jaya who is an educated college going girl. The protagonist Keshav (Akshay Kumar) falls in love with her and eventually convinces her to marry him. However, his father believes in horoscope and Keshav's horoscope is such that he can and should only marry a girl who has two thumbs on her left hand. 

In a scene, while Keshav is convincing his father for accepting Jaya, his father says he wants a daughter in law with two thumbs and eventually terms the name of the girl as 'Hrithika Roshan'. Further, as Jaya doesn't fulfil the requirement, Keshav does jugaad to arrange an artificial thumb for Jaya to wear in front of his father. Keshav's undoubting father agrees to their marriage. The 'Hrithika' reference was a subtle nod to superstar Hrithik Roshan who happens to have two thumbs on his right hand.
