Yami Gautam, who was last seen in URI: The Surgical Strike, before stepping into tinsel town as an actor has had a successful modeling career. She did modeling for a brief period of time before she made her debut in Hindi cinema with Vicky Donor in 2012.
As we all know, Yami Gautam is all set to play a model in Bala starring Ayushmann Khurrana, in which she will be seen playing a pretty uninsurable model.
Yami is thrilled to play such a character for the first time. Her modeling days have also come handy to her to play her part in the film. She plays 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. The only similarity is that she’s a model and I have done that briefly, so there are basics I understand of the character. 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.”
