Bhoomika Meena speaks on her debut with Dukaan, a film based on surrogacy

| @indiablooms | 09 Apr 2024, 10:13 pm

Actress Bhoomika Meena has made her film debut with the portrayal of Kinjal's character in 'Dukaan', starring alongside Sikandar Kher, Monika Panwar, Soham Majumdar and Monali Thakur.

Bhoomika hails from a humble background, and her journey to the silver screen is a testament to grit, passion, and unwavering determination.

"I remember getting a call back from Abhimanyu Ray sir, the very day I auditioned for the part. I was brimming with a sense of joy standing in a queue of another audition in Versova! Haha!" says Bhoomika.

Released on April 5 in theatres, 'Dukaan' is a poignant tale that delicately explores the intricacies of surrogacy.

Bhoomika portrays the character of Kinjal, who is one of the key reasons that compels Jasmine aka Monika Panwar the lead, to start Surrogacy in the first place.

Reflecting on her experience working on such an inspiring project, Bhoomika shares, "Working on 'Dukaan' has been an immensely gratifying experience.

"The directors of the film Siddharth-Garima and I bonded on the very first meeting, when I first read the script, tears rolled down my eyes, such was the impact of their writing. I am grateful to ma’am and Sir, from the bottom of my heart for embracing me with such open arms."

"I could go on and on and on about the stories behind the scenes but the most important thing is that I love the movies, I love acting, and there’s nowhere else I’d rather be than on a film set, I’ve worked hard to be here and I am so grateful to the almighty to have begun my journey with people who share an equal love for cinema and everything around it!

"I hope I have done justice to Kinjal's character with my performance.  It’s a long journey , I’m sure, but even a journey of a thousand miles starts with a step right! Dukaan is just that, and a special one indeed!  " exclaims Bhoomika .

Dukaan has been written and directed by Siddharth Singh & Garima Wahal who were the minds behind the films like 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha', 'Raabta', 'Kabir Singh' and the blockbuster 'Animal'.

Before her stellar Bollywood debut, Bhoomika showcased her versatility in the Amazon mini TV series, 'Slum Golf' and was also awarded as the best actress at several festivals for her critically acclaimed short film 'Chuhedaani' available on Disney Plus Hotstar.
