Bollywood actor Yami Gautam has a die-hard fan in Kolkata, who has tattooed her name on his arm.

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.
