Actress Yami Gautam was a popular name even before she entered the film industry, owing to her popularity of being a face of several brands. Always grounded and humble about her beginnings, Yami stays connected to her past and the experiences that have shaped her. Although Yami tasted success this year with URI The Surgical Strike and with Kaabil two years ago, that was recently released in China, the actor hasn't forgotten her modelling days before her debut with Vicky Donor in 201.
Recently it was reported that Yami is all set to play a model in her next film with Ayushmann Khurrana in Bala. Yami is thrilled to play such a character for the first time and her modelling days experiences came handy.She plays a city model from Lucknow who is a popular face of the local brands.
Speaking on this Yami said, “I play a popular model from Lucknow. Unlike a lot of characters shown on screen so far, my character is a local model who’s famous in a local town. There have been many occasions in my hay days which I associate with my character on a personal level even though the character is far different and her experiences are different from what I have experienced. The only similarity is that that she’s a model and I have done that briefly, so there are basics I understand of the character."
During her good old days as a model Yami was the choice of various brands and fashion designers as the face of their product. When she learnt she is playing a model in the film she got all excited to portray her past real life experiences in reel life.
