I also wish that the industry sees enormous successes because it was deeply affected by the pandemic. I’m glad Badhaai Do has started it off on a positive note!”

About the phenomenal start that she has got in 2022, Bhumi says, “It’s definitely a big year for me and it has started off with a bang! The love and appreciation that I have been getting for Badhaai Do is just insane and I couldn’t have imagined a better start to 2022. I feel validated as an actor because my content choices are working consistently.”

As a creative person, I feel satiated that I will get to show people how different and disruptive I can be every time I come on screen. I hope I can entertain everyone thoroughly as that brings me a lot of joy.”
