During a recent interview with News18, Bhumi Pednekar spoke about the orgasm scene and her character in her recent film Thank You For Coming. She said, “I believe the orgasm scene was filmed in a beautiful way. Karan told me that the camera would only capture my facial expressions.” However, she quickly added, “My character wasn't seeking just pleasure, she was searching for love. She blamed herself for not being able to find love and for meeting the wrong people. She felt incomplete. We often tend to blame ourselves because we're constantly made to feel like we're not good enough as if something is missing in us rather than the boys.”
The film features a bold moment where Bhumi bears it all as she gazes at herself in a mirror. When discussing this scene, she mentions that she had no hesitation while filming it, and sharing her thoughts on this, she said, “I didn't think it through. I have a strong belief in our audience and the fans I've built. If you closely examine that scene, you won't see anything revealing. It was a silhouette, and I was fully clothed throughout the scene. This is where the filmmaker's artistic approach plays a role. Karan explained that it was a silhouette shot.”
