Latika Trivedi in 'Bala'


Bhumi Pednekar's Latika in 'Bala' is one of the strongest characters she has played on screen. In 'Bala' Latika was a smart, dark-skinned girl who bravely stood up against stereotypes in the society that overlooks one's tralent over skin colour.

Chandro Tomar in 'Saand Ki Aankh'

Vedika Tripathi in 'Pati, Patni Aur Woh' 

Vedika Tripathi in 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' is smart, fashionable and knows what she wants. Bhumi Pednekar played a modern girl who is bold in her choices and lives life on her terms in the film. She loves her husband but puts her dignity above all.

Jaya Joshi in 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha'


Jaya played by Bhumi Pednekar, an educated college going girl, falls in love with Akshay Kumar and marries him. The girl who has a progressive attitude towards life, takes a strong step and leaves her in-laws house and demands a toilet to be built in the house if her husband truly wants her back. The movie raised the problems that women in the rural areas face due to lack of sanitation facilities.
