Vicky Donor has been in the news for quite a while now, for not just being a small budget yet successful film on a socially relevant issue, but also for catapulting to stardom its lead Chandigarh-origin actors — Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam.
While Ayushmann showed his ‘nautanki’ in this year’s film Natuanki Saala, pretty girl Yami’s fans are eager to know when they would next see her on screen. Yami was in Chandigarh on Monday to shoot for a show on UTV Stars — Stars in Your City — in which she got to spend a day in the city and meet some of her ‘biggest’ fans.
Yami laughs when she acknowledges that her latest visit to her hometown has actually prompted a ‘rediscovery’ of the city. “When we went to Sukhna Lake to shoot, I indulged in boating, something I hadn’t done even though I belong to the city. The schedule also includes shopping at Sector 17 and then driving a tractor at a farmhouse,” she elaborates.
Meanwhile, Bollywood is keeping Yami busy too, she says, having just returned from the sub-zero temperatures of London where she went to shoot for upcoming film, Aman Ki Asha. “The film is written by Neeraj Pandey, who last directed films A Wednesday and Special 26.
Directed by Eshwar Nivas, Aman Ki Asha is a rom-com shot differently. I play Aman, a Punjabi NRI girl, while Ali Zafar plays a Pakistani boy. The cast includes actors Anupam Kher and Kirron Kher among others,” she shares. Yami has also shot for two South Indian films — Gouravam and Courier Boy Kalyan and has been signed on to be the face of Rio Tinto diamonds and Kwality Walls.
