Bhumi preps for Son Chiriya & how

Bhumi Pednekar will soon be seen on the silver screen in Abhishek Chaubey’s Son Chiriya and the actress recently revealed the hectic preparations she went through for her role. She shares, “The physicality of my character concerned Chaubey the most! He really went to the details of it and he literally told me that the women of Chambal are carb eating women. They are muscular but they are lean and they are fit because of the amount of work they do through the day – they walk kilometers, go get water, they have to pick up 8-10 litres of water on their head with a child in their arm and walk back.”

The actress further adds, “It was like a month and a half before we started shooting. So, I would walk around with 5-6 litres of water on my head in Aaram Nagar for kilometers and kilometers without any shoes because we were trying to also get rough and tough… I would carry 10-15 kgs of a wheat sack on my back and again walk and run through Aaram Nagar because there is a lot of running in the film. We included a few things that helped me get the physique and even my diet from a person who has gone off carbs and dairy.”
