Yami: I waited for these opportunities, on signing 8 films

Yami
Yami Gautam says – “I am looking forward to playing a cop in this one, which is special, also because, growing up, Dr Kiran Bedi has been an inspiration. It will be fun to learn Haryanvi for this one. Another film that I am excited about is, A Thursday, which is a series after movie A Wednesday (2008). Which I am thrilled to headline, as it would be my first. I couldn’t be happier. It is one of the best scripts I have read in a long time, and is directed by Behzad Khambata.”

Yami tells – “People would say, why are you so choosy? One can be choosy only when you have many different options and if you don’t (laughs), then you do one film at a time, like I did. But things changed Kaabil (2017), which is another film after Vicky Donor (2012) that I am proud of. Luckily, Uri: The Surgical Strike (2019) happened and so did Bala.”

Yami Gautam continues and say – “They changed perspective and things started rolling. I also believe everyone has a journey. When you know, you are on a self-made path, then your level of patience and resilence has to be really high. I waited for these opportunities as I focuses on strong subjects. The idea was to select films and be a part of scripts which also help me portray. And become a versatile actor, which I have always believe in. I want to be who I am as a person but on screen, I want to surprise myself and the audience and see what more can I explore. That’s what makes it fun.”
