Today, Yami Gautam has every cause to smile from ear to ear. After all, she’s been in Bollywood for ten years. Vicky Donor, in which she co-starred with Ayushmann Khurrana, has been on the big screen for ten years.
As fans celebrated the milestone for both Ayushmann and Yami on social media, the Uri: The Surgical Strike actor rushed to Twitter and penned a letter recalling the memories. Yami uploaded a photo from her recent visit to the studio where she had given the Vicky Donor audition.
Yami was dressed in a denim blazer and cream slacks in the photo. She was posing while sitting on a sofa, with the Vicky Donor poster on the wall as a backdrop. Yami captioned the image, “The place where it all began! Started my journey auditioning for Vicky Donor right here! यह सोफ़ा भी यहीं था! A recent visit to this studio took me down memory lane, reliving so many beautiful moments through the journey! Thank you, Shoojit da & our entire team. #VickyDonor.”
Meanwhile, Yami is enjoying the success of her last film Dasvi, which she co-wrote with Abhishek Bachchan and Nimrat Kaur. The actress played a police officer in the film, and director Tushar Jalota believes that no one could have played the character better than Yami.
“When we were casting for this role in Dasvi, I couldn’t imagine anyone else other than Yami Gautam playing Jyoti Deswal. She is someone who completely gets absorbed by her character and thoroughly prepares for it,” Yami was quoted saying.
Later in an interview with the Indian Express, the actress also spread the light on the kind of movies she would like to do in future, saying, “I really like to do films which resonate with my sensibility, but it doesn’t mean only intense roles. In the last year, I’ve had five performances that were pretty intense, which really took a toll on me. Whatever I do, it needs to engage you as an audience and make them believe that if I am a part of a film, there might be something different. The idea is to create my own audience, to create trust in people who watch my work.”
