Actor Bhumi Pednekar is on a roll with back-to-back films in her kitty. After having a busy 2019, the actor is all set to welcome an even busier 2020. Starring as the main lead, Bhumi is once again teaming up with her Toilet: Ek Prem Katha co-star, Akshay Kumar. Akshay will be presenting the film along with Bhushan Kumar while it is being produced by Vikram Malhotra and directed by Ashok.

Spilling the beans on her character in an interview with PTI earlier, Bhumi had shared, “Durgavati is going to take me in horror space. It is the most challenging and special film for me, as it is for the first time, the responsibility will be on my shoulders. Durgavati is something I’m most pressured and excited about. Akshay sir is a genius, I respect him.”
