Yami Gautam who has had a good year with both her films ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ (2019) and ‘Bala’ (2019), said that she has learnt the importance of waiting for the right project.
Reported on Mid-day, Gautam who’s last box office hit was ‘Vicky Donor’ (2012), shares success isn’t found overnight, “With Vicky Donor, I chose a path which established me as an actor first, before anything else. But then in the middle… You try to figure things out. It was an overnight success, you don’t know anyone here. It took me a while to understand this place, to find my voice.
Further adding, “The ability to say no is very important which I have realised. If you don’t believe in something don’t do it. I’d never go back and disrespect my certain professional choices because at that point for me, they mattered. But ‘Uri’ and ‘Bala’, showed me as an actor in a light which I wanted people to notice.”
The ‘Kaabil’ (2017) star will be next seen in the rom-com ‘Ginny Weds Sunny’ with Vikrant Massey, says she is thankful that directors are considering her for non-conventional roles, “There’s a happy responsibility now, when people look forward to my work. My effort will always be to ber versatile. I knew my capability as an actor but it takes time. I have to be patient and I will be,” explains Gautam.
