Bollywood actor Yami Gautam’s fan following must be nationwide, but one person stands out among the multitude. Atul Sureka, a lawyer from Kolkata, has been such an admirer of the actor that now he has got her name tattooed on his arm to show her love.
Atul got a chance to meet Yami for the first time in February 2017 and, ever since, the actor has looked at him as a special fan — she really appreciates the fact that this man has followed her work from the time she debuted with Vicky Donor (2012), in which she played a Bengali woman, a resident of New Delhi. “Atul lives in Kolkata and came to Yami’s notice through social media. His constant appreciation of her work has impressed Yami a lot, and she makes it a point to meet him every time she visits Kolkata on some work-related trip. So much so, that now her team informs him when she’s about to go to the city,” says a source close to the actor.
Yami, who’ll soon be seen in Batti Gul Meter Chalu, is thankful to her fans for encouraging her always. “[Atul] really came across as a genuine fan and [he was] so shy. When I met him, he couldn’t even look up and talk much. The biggest quality in a fan has to be about love and respect, and that’s what I saw in him,” says the actor.
