Actress Yami Gautam has completed successful eleven years in the entertainment industry. Now, the actress has talked about the unwelcoming remarks she confronted before the release of her debut flick opposite Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Donor.
The bold and beautiful actress disclosed that she was asked to dress according to her age and “aim at looking younger” when going for trials and meetings.
Yami has revealed she was told by a top casting director, “Why do you dress like that?” when she was simply dressed in a jeans and a top.
When questioned about her journey in the Hindi film industry, without any Godfather, Yami told media people that she recalled that she auditioned for a renowned production house and the individual is one of the prominent casting directors. At that time, she had already filmed Vicky Donor, but the movie had not rolled out.
“So he told me ‘you know, your audition was really good’ so I was very happy! He was like ‘you know you have been shortlisted, but, problem is you should dress your age. Why do you dress like that?’ I said ‘I don’t know what it means, I mean I wore a jeans and a top. What is wrong with that?’ And he was like ‘you should always aim at looking younger, you are a young girl so why not dress your age?’ I was like what does it mean?”
“There are so many things I wanted to tell that person but…like…if I suit the part, it is your and hair dresser and stylist’s job to make me look like her. Rest would be my job as an actor. How does it matter? Why can I not walk into a meeting in a kurti and jeans or a dress, if I want to? Right now, it is easy for me to talk about these things, but that time I walked out thinking ‘I know I have lost a part for sure. But what do I do about it if I do not connect with something?’ What kind of an expectation is this?” she added.
At the present time, the actress is busy filming Abhishek Bachchan-starrer Dasvi. Produced under the banners of Dinesh Vijan, Sandeep Leyzell, and Shobhana Yadav, the movie has Yami.
