Yami Gautam is currently gearing up for the release of her upcoming film ‘Batti Gul Meter Chaalu,’ directed by Shree Narayan Singh and starring Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. And apart from having a pivotal role as a lawyer in the film, Gautam took on the role for another reason too.
When Gautam read the script of ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ it took her back to her childhood in Himachal, reports the Deccan Chronicle. Having been raised in Himachal before moving to Chandigarh, the star while growing up had also been accustomed to issues like load shedding, heavy bills on low electricity consumption. Even after moving to Chandigarh, she went to meet her grandparents in the holidays and would face many hours of power cuts. So when the director narrated the story to her, she knew she had to take the role on not just for how powerful it was but because it reminded her of when she experienced it as well.
