Yami Gautam garnered positive response for her last release Kaabil (2016). “I have to live up to the love that people have showered me with. From here, things are going to be special. I am enjoying the space,” says Yami. Ask her if she still feels like an outsider and she says, “The word outsider is just in the head. It’s a mental block. Whatever you put your energies to, life gives you that. I am happy where I am, and slowly and steadily [I am] moving towards the goal I want to reach.”

However, she did go through a phase when her films didn’t do well. “My second film (Total Siyappa; 2014)) didn’t do well and I was very upset. Though you have your entourage and other people around you, who advise you on the kind of films to do, you need to understand and remember why you came here [Bollywood]. You should evolve, but the core [values] should never leave you.”

Yami reveals that she would now like to work with many film-makers.“Raju sir (Rajkumar Hirani), Imtiaz Ali and Vishal Bhardwaj are a few names on my wishlist. I want to work with multiple film-makers as they can help me discover my versatility as an actor. Nothing works in isolation.” She believes if actors are complimented for their work, the credit goes to the director and co-actors of the said projects too. “It is important to have belief in the people you are working with,” says the actor.
