Actress Bhumi Pednekar, who will be seen in the web series “Daldal,” has opened up about her character in the show. In “Daldal,” the actress will portray the challenging role of a cop. Bhumi described her character as a super achiever and a glass-ceiling breaker who rewrites the rules in a male-dominated world.

The actress said: “Daldal’ is a project that encapsulates all these qualities of being a woman. Rita is a super achiever, a glass-ceiling breaker, and a rewriter of rules in a man’s world. She is ambitious, ferociously passionate about her job, and leads from the front. These are the kinds of women I idolise, and I’m thrilled to headline a series like this on a global streaming platform like Prime Video that will help me show the strength and resilience of Indian women to the world.” Bhumi called “Daldal” one of her most special projects for many reasons.

She has started shooting for the project and said that it’s one of her most challenging roles ever, without a shadow of a doubt. Bhumi shared that it has been a very exciting year for her as an actress. Earlier, her streaming film “Bhakshak” garnered a great response not only in India but also globally.

The actress further mentioned, “If you look at my filmography, I have been fortunate enough to have found projects that help me portray strong, independent women who are sheer forces of nature. “Dum Laga Ke Haisha,” “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha,” “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan,” “Lust Stories,” “Bala,” “Badhaai Do,” “Saand Ki Aankh,” “Sonchiriya,” “Bhakshak” are films that reflect what I think when it comes to portraying Indian women on screen.” “I want people to remember and celebrate our women because women play a huge hand in shaping society and they have every right to follow their dreams, passion, and ambition. We are truly unstoppable,” she added.

Meanwhile, Bhumi had announced on June 1 that that she has commenced shooting for her debut series, “Daldal,” and even offered a glimpse from the set. Bhumi posted on Instagram and shared a picture with her back facing the camera. The actress was seen wearing a brown shirt and had a long ponytail. Due to the dim lighting, not much is visible in the photo. “Daldal” is a thriller that tells the story of DCP Rita Ferreira, who is haunted by the guilt of her past while dealing with the demons of her present. She is investigating a series of murders committed by a cold-blooded serial killer. The series is directed by Amrit Raj Gupta and is reportedly based on the book “Bhendi Bazaar” by Vish Dhamija.

When the announcement about “Daldal” was made in March, Bhumi shared that she would be playing a woman who has shattered the glass ceiling by being appointed as the DCP of Mumbai. “I think a character like this will resonate with the times that we live in because a woman is no longer shackled down and is ambitious and independent,” she said at the time.
