Her new film Son Chiriya sees her break away from the road much travelled by actresses of today as Bhumi chooses to play a desi woman from the 1970s Chambal valley. Her vulnerability as well as her boldness in carrying the gun is definitely one of the most striking visual of a heroine that we have seen in a long, long time.
