Actress Yami Gautam is a household name owing her popularity being a face of several endorsements. Much before she became a successful on screen actress, Yami has dabbled in a bit of modelling during her hay days. Always grounded in her past and humble beginnings, Yami always stays connected to her past and the experiences that have shaped her. Yami before stepping into tinsel town as an actor has had a successful modelling career. She did modelling for a brief period of time before she made her debut in Hindi cinema with Vicky Donor in 2012.
Recently it was reported Yami is all set to play a model in her next film with Ayushmann Khurrana in Bala. In the film Yami will be seen exploring the character of a model, and a pretty uninsurable one. Yami is thrilled to play such a character for the first time and her modelling days came handy to Yami to play her part of a model in the film. The part in the film she plays is a local city model from Lucknow who is a popular face for the locals and the local brands of the city.
Speaking on this Yami said, “I play a popular model from a local city in 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. Of course this character is very different and something I haven’t done before. But my personal experience as a model has come in handy in certain nuances. It has been a great experience be walking down the memory lane to play a model in Bala.”
