"Unfortunately, there is a shelf life for actresses. I don't know why because I feel makers aren't able to view them that way" - Bhumika Chawla

Bhumika and her Tere Naam co-star Salman have reconnected in the movie Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan. Pooja Hegde, not she, is the actor opposite him. In the family comedy, Bhumika plays the part of Pooja's sister-in-law. On April 21, the day before Eid, Farhad Samji's film Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan was released. The Hindi movie, which is a loose adaptation of the 2014 Tamil film Veeram, made 10.17 crore net on its opening day, bringing its total revenue to 78.34 crore net.

Bhumika revealed, "Unfortunately, there is a shelf life for actresses. I don't know why because I feel makers aren't able to view them that way. Now that Netflix is here, Amazon [web] series are coming, content driven films and web series have good work for senior actresses, [in] central roles. But in a commercial mass film has the same system even today. Hero is still playing hero and the female lead has gone backward."

She added, "The change will have to come from the industry. The audience can't do that. If we change something, then the audience will accept it. If we don't change it then how will they accept it?"

Bhumika was last seen in the Tamil thriller Kannai Nambathey in which she had a double role. In 2022, she appeared in the Hindi film Operation Romeo starring Sidhant Gupta and Vedika Pinto. The actor was also part of the Telugu films Sita Ramam and Butterfly in supporting roles.
