During the movie promotions, we saw the very less of the actress. But her recent appearance along with her brilliant performance in the movie has won this actress a large army of fans.

But for Bhumi, her journey in Bollywood has only just begun.

The latest we hear of the fresh-faced actress is that she has signed a three-film deal with Yash Raj Productions. Surprisingly, she had accidentally auditioned for the film while assisting Shanoo, the casting director of Yash Raj. Funny how fate works!

This is the first time an actress with such calibre has started her journey boldly picking a movie where she was more than her figure. And this is a sign of how Bollywood is slowly but surely changing for good as far as lead actresses are concerned.
