Yami Gautam’s upcoming films Batti Gul Meter Chalu and Uri are different in look, concept and subject — something she is glad about — but the actor says the industry is yet to tap into her “other side”, which is all about being goofy, silly and passionate about dance.
Having done films like Vicky Donor, Total Siyappa, Kaabil and Sarkar 3 in Hindi cinema, Yami has been attempting to display versatility in her filmography. With Batti Gul Meter Chalu and Uri, she is hoping to push the envelope further, as well as do an “out-and-out commercial potboiler”.
“I am quite grateful and happy that such roles are coming up, which resonate with today’s girls, and are about being independent. I am happy with the fact that they (the two films) are different — in terms of looks, concepts, subjects,” says Yami.
She said she also enjoys films in which she can dancing or do comedy. “Because I enjoy watching it, I would love to perform or be a part of such films as that’s also one of the variation of films we have,” adds Yami. This variety, according to her, is the best thing about Bollywood.
“Look at the range we are coming up with. I think it’s amazing. I would love to do an out-and-out masala film. I’d love to dance, because I love dancing… For example, I love watching Madhuri Dixit’s Ek do teen, so why wouldn’t I like to dance? But at the same time, I am glad I have such roles in Uri and Batti Gul…,” says Yami.
