We last saw Bhumi Pednekar and Akshay Kumar on screen in ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ (2017), since then the pair have formed a strong friendship. Recently, Pednekar spoke about her relationship with Kumar and how much she values him.
Reported on Pinkvilla, the ‘Durgamati’ (2020) star recently spoke to IANS where she shared that not only has her friendship with the ‘Bell Bottom’ (2021) actor grown stronger, but he has been a huge part of her career too, “I think my friendship has only become thicker with him. He is someone I hold in a very high regard. He’s been a huge part of my career and we’ve done some very successful things together. He is somebody who I learnt a lot from and only have love and respect for him.”
The duo are soon to appear in Aanand L Rai’s upcoming comedy drama ‘Raksha Bandhan’, which Pednekar remained mum about the details of the film, “I unfortunately can’t (say). As a principle, I don’t talk about any of my films till the makers do but all I can say is it’s been a very heart-warming process for me to work with two people I love so much.”
However, she did have a lot of praise for the director, “Aanand Sir is one of the nicest and kindest directors. It’s genuinely an experience to be directed by him.”
