The trailer of Bhumi Pednekar's Durgamati finally hit the web, the spooky film is a conspiracy thriller and is the official Hindi remake of hit Telugu film Bhaagamathie. Durgamati is the story of an innocent Government officer who is made the victim of a major conspiracy involving powerful forces. In the trailer, we see Arshad Warsi who is being called as a corrupt politician and to catch him, Mahie Gill, who is an investigating officer hires Bhumi's character to get into the case. However, fans of Baahubali actress Anushka Shetty are pretty upset with the trailer and are offended over a few scenes in it.
One of the Twitter users wrote, "This is copy of Bhaagmati?? This woman cant even act for god's sake and she acted in this film?? Anushkashetty nailed it in telugu !!." While the other tweet read, "Even dialogue When #BhumiPednekar says - mai hu #durgamati is so bad...In #Bhaagamathie #AnushkaShetty was so good." In the Telugu original, Anushka Shetty played the role of a female IAS officer who is possessed by a spirit of a dead queen. Bhaagamathie is the revenge thriller. The Hindi remake Durgamati also stars Arshad Warsi and will release on Amazon Prime on December 11. It is being bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar and Akshay Kumar.
durgamati looks like a ridiculously spoofed version of bhaagamathie and bhumi pednekar, a flopped attempt to dupe anushka shetty. not everyone can step into the shoes of the actual queen and emerge out successfully. lmao, what a cringeworthy trailer. yucks!— 𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐚²³ (@the_WannabeGirl) November 25, 2020

Just from this 1 still I feel like #AnushkaShetty's performance in #Bhaagamathie is unmatched by #BhumiPednekar's in #Durgamati & it's my personal view & I've seen #DurgamatiTrailer & it looks like a generic copy of South Indian movie, Are they running out of new creative ideas? pic.twitter.com/umMII3jlX8— Tushar Kant Naikॐ♫$ (@TusharKant_Naik) November 25, 2020

Saw the trailer of #Durgamati a hindi remake of #Bhaagamathie— hiraeth (@vysh_T) November 25, 2020
Cannot imagine anyone else other than Anushka Shetty as Chanchal. Bhumi Pednekar might have done a good job, but in trailer it doesn't seem as powerful as Anushka Shetty
#BhumiPednekar might be outstanding actress but 2 replicate what #AnushkaShetty has done in #bhagmati is a huge task n potentially impossible! #bollywood has 2 search for new topics rather than copying the work of South industry n presenting it as their own! #Durgamati#DURGAVATIpic.twitter.com/5MkyxWfReO— Tejas Pujare (@tejas_pujare) November 25, 2020
