Earlier, in an interaction with Mumbai Mirror, Bhumi Pednekar had shared that she is scared of horror films. Speaking about why she took up Durgamati, the actress was quoted as saying, "I took it on as a challenge as the arc of the character is very diverse. Otherwise, I am scared of horror films and watch them through slitted eyes after putting idols all around the television. We were shooting at old, dilapidated places but luckily, the vibes were good, otherwise I would have been really spooked."
In an official statement, Bhumi Pednekar said, "I'm super excited about my upcoming film Durgamati and it's an honour to play the lead in this conspiracy thriller.Being an ardent fan of spine-chilling thrillers myself, I was delighted to be a part of such a gripping story. Also, I am glad to collaborate with Akshay Sir again after 3 years and present this wonderful film for audiences across the world."
Durgamati also stars Arshad Warsi, Jisshu Sengupta and Mahie Gill in pivotal roles. Written and directed by Ashok, produced by Vikram Malhotra and presented by Akshay Kumar under the Cape of Good Films banner, along with Bhushan Kumar under the T-Series Banner, the film is slated to premiere on Amazon Prime on December 11, 2020.
