Yami Gautam is looking forward to Shree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu where she plays a lawyer and stars alongside Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
She follows it up with the action film Uri, with Vicky Kaushal.
As she moves forward in her career, Yami tells Rediff.com contributor Sneha Chakraborty, “I may slow down, but eventually, I will win.”
I have two reasons to get atta ched to Batti Gul…
I hail from Himachal Pradesh and am aware of the problems related to electricity and basic amenities.
I was not surprised because Shree’s first film as a director was Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, which also had a social message. And it was entertaining at the same time.
Professionally, my interest was the role, as I have never played a lawyer.
Batti Gul… is a story of three friends, but the courtroom has a huge role to play in it. I am an important aspect of the film too.
