As Bhumi Pednekar recalled her childhood, marked by countless sibling squabbles, she revealed the unshakable bond they shared even then. Elaborating on the same, the Bhakshak star said, “Even if our mom came between us, she would be villainized because this is like our thing, and that’s how our bond has evolved.” Admitting the occasional disagreements between the sisters, Bhumi revealed, “We trigger each other (sometimes), but it’s short-lived. We can’t live without each other. It’s impossible that our fights would last more than 5-10 minutes.” Further into the conversation, Bhumi described Samiksha not just as a sister but as a business partner, life partner, and best friend. “There’s nobody who understands me better than her.”
