Panaji: Life is not a bed of roses, nor is it full of thorns – that pretty much sums up Bollywood actress Yami Gautam’s acting journey over the last 10 years.
Yami started her career with a lead role in the daily soap Chand Ke Paar Chalo and went on to do shows like Rajkumar Aryan and Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kum. It was 2012 when she really started her Bollywood journey with the hit film ‘Vicky Donor’, which also featured Ayushmann Khurrana, and since then she has been putting her best foot forward.
Films like Badlapur, Kaabil, Uri: The Surgical Strike, Bala and Thursday worked in his favor while films like Total Siyapaa, Sanam Re, Juniyat, Batti Gul Meter Chalu and Ginny Weds Sunny failed to impress the audience.
Recalling her journey so far, Yami told ANI with a big smile on her face, “My journey is still on…I have faced a lot of ups and downs but it is all worth it in the end “
He also recalled the time when he felt lost right after the success of his debut film.
“Right after my first film, in fact right after the success of the film I felt lost… I didn’t know which path to take.. I wasn’t able to connect with the opportunities that were available to me at that time.. Yami said, ‘Whether I remain jobless or I take advantage of these opportunities and still try, all these thoughts kept roaming in my mind… I needed to understand myself and give the right direction to my voice. Took a while.
He said, “I had to rediscover myself to understand what was my purpose in coming here and leaving my hometown.”
Talking about Yami’s upcoming projects, she will be seen in a thriller titled ‘Lost’, which was screened at the 53rd International Film Festival of India. (ANI)
