Bhumi Pednekar, who was last seen in Sonchiriya, has a number of films in her kitty. The actress has Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare which recently premiered at the Busan International Film Festival. She has Saand Ki Aankh with Taapsee Pannu, Bala with Ayushmann Khurrana, Pati Patni Aur Woh with Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday and Bhoot. But more than her films what is more interesting is the Hindi one-liners that the actress has been using as a caption for her Instagram posts.

In an interview with TOI, she revealed that Chandro Daadi inspired the one-liners. The captions are all things that she spoke or rather speaks. Muh mein raam haath mein kaam, shareer boodha hota hai mann nahi...these are lines that Chandro Daadi actually said and Bhumi wanted to place them on her Insta posts. Chandro Daadi is a witty woman, and also very intelligent. She speaks some epic sentences which we can’t miss while talking to her. Elaborating on Chandro Daadi, the actress told that apart from the fact that Chandro Daadi has that personality, her experiences have also driven Bhumi's mind in a big way. Between the three women in the house, they had some 40 children who called all of them maa. Hans khel ke life kaati hai. They are happy women who have toiled hard -- bhatti sambhali hai, kheton mein kaam kiya hai, ghar ki lippayi ki hai, bacche jane hain. They’ve done it all with a smile which is so evident in the way they are even now.

When asked if Prakashi and Chandro Tomar, and their spirit have any effect on her, Bhumi said she had learned how not to differentiate between people. During the three months that they lived in that village with them, Bhumi realised that they leave their doors open for anyone who wants to come in. At any given time, they’re prepared to feed 50 people. The women in that belt of India are physically and mentally very strong. Look at their attire and body language -- they wear shirts and ghagras made with 32 metres of cloth, and their bodies are almost as strong as men. Even their postures are like that -- walking with the chest out. Despite leading a happy life, both the daadis felt something was lacking. They questionned the fact that if their sons can shoot why can’t their daughters and grand-daughters do that too? That’s how they started air pistol shooting! Theirs is a real fairytale life.

Saand Ki Aankh is all set to hit theaters on 25th October 2019.
