Yash Raj Films discovery Bhumi Pednekar, who started her career overweight in 'Dum Lagake Haisha', is now 30 kilos lighter and many aeons ahead of where she was in her debut film. Her stunning performance as a domestic help in Zoya Akhtar's film in the Lust Stories omnibus is fetching her kudos.
And now, she seems to have caught Sanjay Leela Bhansali's attention. Apparently, Bhansali has zeroed in on Bhumi to play a key role in a forthcoming production.
"He hasn't decided if she is going to be in his next directorial venture or in one of the three-four films he is producing. But Bhumi is definitely an actress Mr Bhansali would like to work with," says a source close to the film-maker.
