Bhumi won a million hearts with an unconventional debut as the overweight Sandhya. Her sizzling chemistry onscreen with co-star Ayushmann Khuranna and her portrayal of the young and ambitious woman broke the Bollywood stereotypes and gave the industry a fresh new perspective. While bagging the award, the sexy and fit Bhumi said,

“I am very excited to have won this award. It feels really great when you are appreciated for your work and I would definitely dedicate this award to Shanoo because she was the first one who got me introduced to this world, who believed in me and who thought I should always act. This award has motivated me to even work better, to work harder and to perform better.”

We can’t wait to see more of Bhumi! Hopefully she’s not a one-hit-wonder!
