Chum Darang on playing Bhumi Pednekars love interest 

Actors Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar are all set for their upcoming film 'Badhaai Do' which is just couple days away from its release. Their characters of a gay policeman and lesbian teacher were much appreciated by the fans in the trailer and apart from them, one character that stood out was of actress Chum Darang. Chum is making her Bollywood debut with this film and she's playing Bhumi Pednekar's love interest in it.

During a recent conversation with ETimes, she opened up about her experience of playing a lesbian character. "The character that I am playing, she is such a fun girl and the tag of playing Bhumi’s love interest did not really bother me. It was a challenge to play a role like that but I had no inhibitions," said Chum.

Talking about her castmates, Chum said, "They both are so down to earth and work really hard. I know they are experienced, they know so much but during the shoot, they sat down, listened to the director and worked accordingly. I learnt to be hardworking and grounded from them, the respect they have for other actors on set was another thing that I learnt from them."
