Yami Gautam has won hearts with her acting performances, over the years. Her performances in movies like Bala, A Thursday have earned her immense praise. But, did you know that the actress had once almost thought of giving up on her acting career?

We sat down with the Bala actress for a candid chat recently. In an exclusive interview with us, Yami revealed she had almost thought of giving up on her acting career and reminisced that time too. She further shared how it was the movie Bala that made her change her decision of quitting her acting career.

Yami Gautam told Bollywood Bubble, “It almost came to a point. I thought if. Bala came to me, in fact at a point when I thought I should just, you know, I think I should just leave.

The A Thursday actress further explained, “Leave in the sense that what am I waiting for? Is it good? Patience is a virtue, but then what if I put all these efforts into all these things into something else?

She added, “But there’s another thing I tell youngsters is that, there’s something else, don’t take the pressure of ‘Log kya kahenge? Acha aap wapis aa gaye’. No, koi baat nahi hai. Aapki life hai. Agar aapko lagta hai ki aapko kuch aur cheez. Haan aapko acting Khushi deti hai, but is there another opportunity that you can also do better, why not?

Yami continued, “Just then, Bala happened. I was almost ready. So, I never got desperate for anything. I thought, koi baat nahi, kuch aur hoga. Kar lenge. But neend acchi aani chahiye (I thought, no problem, something else will happen. We will do it. But, at night, I should get a proper sleep).”
