Bollywood actress Bhumi Pednekar acknowledged that conforming to beauty standards had an impact on her, revealing, 'I faced challenges in feeling confident.'

During a recent interview, the 34-year-old actress shared her journey of struggling with confidence during her upbringing, disclosing that fashion played a significant role in helping her overcome it.

The Dum Laga Ke Haisha actress said, “When I was growing up, I struggled with feeling confident, especially because of the pressure to fit into certain beauty ideals. But instead of letting that define me, I turned to fashion as a form of self-discovery”.

“As I've gotten older, my relationship and understanding of beauty and fashion have evolved."

Bhumi further revealed that she isn't following trends but simply enjoying dressing up and having fun.

She divulged, “It's not just about looking good anymore or following trends —it's about embracing my individuality, expressing my personality, and celebrating what makes me unique."

"Today, fashion and beauty are a medium through which I can express myself, my emotional canvas and my state of mind."

Talking about how she enjoys doing fashion she likes, the Bhakshak famed said, “I love experimenting. I just want to have fun with fashion and I think I’m doing this with all my heart which is why people are appreciating my fashion-forward turn." 

"It is good when I can work both ends of the spectrum - from relatable to edgy fashion.” she added.
