The first trailer for the upcoming horror film, Durgamati, had dropped online. It stars Bhumi Pednekar playing the role of a disgraced IAS officer, who is locked up to be interrogated in a haunted mansion. The movie, directed by Ashok is the remake of his Telugu film, Bhaagmathie. The original features Anushka Shetty in the lead role, so of course, there are going to be comparisons. Many fans of Anushka have not liked the new iteration, but many have praised Bhumi as well.

Not on Par With Anushka?
What a joke of a trailer durgamati trailer was! Looks more like a spoof film than an actual remake. Bhumi can never be on par with Anushka in such larger than life roles!
