Speaking about having eight films lined up this year, actress Yami Gautam said, “When you…are on a self-made path…your level of patience…has to be really high. I waited for these opportunities as I focus on strong subjects.” She added, “The idea was to select films and be a part of scripts which…help me portray and become a versatile actor.”
This year has started for her with a bang as she recently wrapped up the shoot of her upcoming film, Bhoot Police. Next, she starts prep for Dasvi, a social drama, which will be shot in Agra in mid-Feb, which co-stars Abhishek Bachchan.
“I am looking forward to playing a cop in this one, which is special, also because, growing up, Dr Kiran Bedi has been an inspiration. It will be fun to learn Haryanvi for this one. Another film that I am excited about is, A Thursday, which is a series after A Wednesday (2008), which I am thrilled to headline, as it would be my first. I couldn’t be happier. It is one of the best scripts I have read in a long time, and is directed by Behzad Khambata. I play a playschool teacher who takes her students hostage. Another film that I headline is director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhary’s next, which is a take on crime journalism. I didn’t want to headline a film just because it is a female led film. These are really good scripts and roles with some amazing directors,” she divulges, adding the other four films will be announced soon.
