Yami says its ‘worst feeling’ doing project unwillingly | Bollywood

Although she started her journey in the films with a clarity about the kind of roles she wanted to portray, actor Yami Gautam says the “out of sight, out of mind” approach deflected her from making conventional choices. The Himachal Pradesh-born actor debuted with 2012’s Vicky Donor and followed it up with films like Badlapur and Kaabil. At times, she appeared in some stereotypical heroine roles, but according to her, things changed for the better after Uri: The Surgical Strike and Bala, both 2019 releases.

Yami Gautam will now be seen in Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga.

“For me, the awareness was always there right from my first film. Looking back 10 years ago, I auditioned for a film like Vicky Donor, which can sound so different from what it actually was… Even then I knew what kind of film I wanted to associate with.

“But your real journey starts with your second film. It’s not about being successful with a particular film, it’s about what comes after it and how you sustain it. I think that’s a bigger challenge, ” Yami told PTI in an interview here.

Looking back, the 34-year-old actor said there were certain decisions she made when she wanted to be seen. “At the end of the day, it’s like, ‘out of sight, out of mind,’ so you have to do something. If a certain kind of movie comes along, you do it. One is like, ‘Okay, let’s do it “But there’s no fun in it,” she added.

She has evolved into a very meticulous artist now and only considers a project based on the script, Yami said. “I read a script very carefully and make my notes, even for the movies I’m not making. I share that with the director as I feel for the writers. They spend so much time writing, so you owe them that respect.”

The actor said her failures have taught her that there are no “shortcuts”. “Everyone has to go through ups and downs. There is a learning curve that we all have to go through the hard way. The hard way is the best way, there are no shortcuts to anything,” she added.

Over the years, Yami thinks she’s also realized that being a part of something that doesn’t have her heart is the “worst” feeling. “There is a time when you become fearless and feel that instead of doing this it is okay to sit at home and wait… Because I have done that in the past and it is the worst feeling.

“You get up uninspired and every moment is heavy… So now I’m looking at things I believe in,” said the actress, adding that she hasn’t signed any new project right now and is awaiting the release of her movie Kor Nikal Ke Bhaga. The film, which also stars Sharad Kelkar and Sunny Kaushal, is touted as a fast-paced heist thriller. It is directed by Ajay Singh and produced by Amar Kaushik and Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films.

Yami said that she is thankful to Kaushik and Vijan for offering her another interesting role after their highly acclaimed film Bala. “Amar has given me one of the most important films of my life, Bala. I can’t thank him, Niren (Bhatt, writer) and Dinu (Vijan) for literally reviving my career enough,” she said.

“When people didn’t expect me… That time they gave me such an important role and this time they didn’t offer me anything like that either,” she added.

Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga is a story of an air hostess (Yami) and her businessman beau (Sunny) who are on a mission to steal diamonds to free themselves from the clutches of a loan shark. But the robbery goes horribly wrong when the very plane transporting the diamonds is caught in a hostage situation.

Yami said that her character of an air hostess, named Neha, allowed her to grow as a performer. “This film is an opportunity that is interesting, challenging, entertaining, engaging and allows me to nurture myself as an actor,” she added. Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga releases on Netflix on March 24.
