Bhumi Pednekar is an actor, a youth icon, and a role model who champions the cause of climate change in India. A rank outsider to the industry, Bhumi’s rise is inspiring to many. This is why Bhumi has been roped in to host the Miss India pageant this year. Hosted in Imphal, the capital of Manipur, Bhumi will host this event on April 15.
Bhumi has made a huge impact in mainstream Hindi cinema recently with her unique choice of female leads. Be it Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Lust Stories, Badhaai Do, Govinda Naam Mera, Saand Ki Aankh, or Pati Patni Aur Woh, to name a few, Bhumi is the brave new star in Bollywood. She represents the aspirations of the modern Indian woman on screen through her roles.
Bhumi has recently been appointed as the United Nations Development Programme’s first National Advocate for SDGs in India! With her efforts with UNDP, Bhumi will continue to bring attention to the major societal changes that need to be implemented immediately.
