Be it her inspiring weight loss or the mind-blasting transformation as an actor, Bhumi Pednekar never fails in taking her fans by surprise with her determination and talented persona. After working in two blockbusters last year, the actress will be seen in Abhishek Chaubey's dacoit drama.

While the film's release is quite far, the cast has completed the film's shooting already and the actress shared her first look at the film to celebrate the special journey. She wrote, "As we wrap up this unforgettable journey, Sharing a bit of me from this very special film (sic)."

Clad in a simple purple sari with a printed blouse and carrying a gun on her shoulder, Bhumi is looking every ounce a menacing dacoit, who doesn't give a second thought before killing anyone. Playing the role of a young widow, her de-glamourised avatar is looking bold and fierce.

Bhumi interacted with local women from Chambal to learn the Bundelkhandi dialect properly. Talking about her character, she said, "Abhishek is a master at creating characters and has crafted iconic protagonists through his films (Ishqiya, Dedh Ishqiya and Udta Punjab)."

She added, "My look is a stroke of genius. It was his vision that created a character who exudes vulnerability and yet is strong, gritty and bold. Working with Abhishek and Sushant has been one of my most fulfilling creative collaborations."

Set in the 1970s of Chambal valley, the film will take the viewers on a never-seen-before journey of a dacoit love story. The film portrays Bhumi Pednekar as Sushant's love interest whereas Manoj Bajpayee and Ashutosh Rana feature in pivotal roles.
