It is not a surprise that Yami Gautam has made a way for herself in the Bollywood Industry right from scratch. The actress has come a long way and learned many lessons that she uses to navigate her path in her craft. Yami Gautam in a recent chat with a leading publication reported that she is her own Godfather’ in this industry. Yami Gautam will complete a decade in Bollywood next year. She made her debut in 2012 with Vicky Donor starring alongside Ayushmann Khurrana.

Yami Gautam’s new film is all set to release on 10th September. Talking to Mid-Day, Yami Gautam shared that one can’t always understand the film industry and said, “I had made a debut on my own, and no one tells you what steps to take there on.” The actress also shared how Bala changed her life forever as it was the turning point of her career. Yami also emphasised that many people advise you in Bollywood but, it is up to you whether you want to take it or not.

The actress said to the above publication that, “I am my own godfather. Also, I had a support system in my family who kept me sane. You can’t always understand this place completely. People are always offering career advice. They’ll say, ‘Dress up in a certain way for meetings, socialise more, be papped everywhere’. I had to decide if I personally connected with [these ideas]. I had to push myself to not fall into this [trap] and stay focused on finding good roles. Uri: The Surgical Strike [2019] broke the mould for me.” She also spoke about how media scrutiny also doesn’t make journeys in Bollywood easy as she claimed ‘untrue things’ are written about. She said, “you have to decide if you want to jump in the fish market and become the noise. You have to condition yourself.”

Yami Gautam had recently tied the knot with URI director Aditya Dhar. The actress announced the news on her social media and left everyone in a tizzy.  Yami Gautam’s new film is much anticipated by fans as the actress will be seen in a unique avatar.
