Yami Gautam who began her career in the tv industry is well known for her strong performances in various Bollywood films now. The actress believes that being an outsider in the industry has given her perspective. Gautam made her Bollywood debut opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in 2012's Vicky Donor. The Shoojit Sircar directed film caught the attention of many and it hit off a successful career for Yami Gautam.
The actress recently sat down for an interview with Pinkvilla. In the interview, Gautam takes a dig at Nepotism in the Bollywood industry. She said, "There is no fight here. You can’t change if someone is born in the industry; that’s not something anyone has control over. You can’t change where I come from, and proudly so. That’s a fact? If it is a fact, then what is the problem in accepting it? But if you are getting an opportunity, the only thing is that you can’t take anything for granted. "
She further added on her own journey in the industry. She said, "Even if I feel, had I been from a film family, then I would have got this... No, then I would not have got the perspective that I have now. I would not be myself. And I want to remain the way I am."
The actress last appeared in 2019's Bala which also starred Ayushmann Khurrana. Yami also had a brief role in Uri: The Surgical Strike which went on to win a national award. Both Bala and Uri: The Surgical Strike performed well at the box office.
