Yami Gautam, who was last seen in URI: The Surgical Strike, is all set to feature in Bala opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. The duo entered the film industry together with the 2012 hit film, Vicky Donor. Prior to entering the industry, Yami had a successful modelling career
Yami will soon be seen playing a model in her next, Bala, in which she will be seen exploring the character of a model, and a pretty uninsurable one. Yami is thrilled to play such a character for the first time. She plays a local city model from Lucknow who is a popular face for the locals and the local brands of the city.
Talking about her role and how her modelling days came handy to play the part the actress said:
“I play a popular model from a local city in Lucknow. Unlike a lot of characters shown on screen so far, my character is a local model who’s famous in a local town. There have been many occasions in my hay days which I associate with my character on a personal level even though the character is far different and her experiences are different from what I have experienced. The only similarity is that she’s a model and I have done that briefly, so there are basics I understand of the character. Of course, this character is very different and something I haven’t done before. But my personal experience as a model has come in handy in certain nuances.”
