Yami Gautam plays a Tik-Tok star in the film ‘Bala’, which also stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar. While Gautam is working with Pednekar for the first time, she debuted with Khurrana in 2012 film ‘Vicky Donor’.
When speaking to an Indian media outlet, Gautam spoke about her character in ‘Bala’, “She is a small-town model, a Tik-Tok star, energetic, filmy and dramatic. Everything is larger than life for her. She lives in her bubble. Her relevance in the film comes from society’s beauty standards. So, she brings together both worlds. The arc of the character from where it begins to where it goes is beautiful. I have never played such a character before. All the characters are so unique. A good film is an amalgamation of a brilliant team.”
She continued, “I am glad to be part of Bala because it tackles the right issue. And I hope it (the message) travels to every corner of the country.”’
Produced by Dinesh Vijan and Reliance Entertainment, ‘Bala’ is out in cinemas now.
