EXCLUSIVE: ‘I got typecast after ‘Vicky Donor”- Yami Gautam
Actress Yami Gautam is an outsider who works on her own terms. Without succumbing to the industry pressures Yami has indeed come a long way. The actress who started off with ‘Vicky Donor’, however, looks back at her journey and says how one gets typecast in the industry.
Speaking about her journey so far, the ‘Uri’ actress shares, “Although my debut film ‘vicky donor‘ was a performance-oriented role but people didn’t notice that. You get stereotyped because it was not a conventional role so only certain type of roles was coming my way. So it is important to keep working on yourself and reinventing yourself films after films.”
“’Kaabil’ was a sensitive performance, ‘Uri’ again was sensitive yes it was about the operation but I feel weird when I have to project that I play a very strong girl. Why it doesn’t happen with any actor because that’s the perception. So you have to really work hard and keep proving yourself. I know I don’t come with a certain surname or with a godfather or I don’t have a social network here but I am what I am and there is a certain price to it. So with actors like me, it will take a certain time but it will happen,” she signs off.
Meantime Yami will be next seen in ‘Bala’ alongside Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar.
