Speaking up about the incident that happened in her initial days of Bollywood, she opened up about how she had went to give audition for a very huge production house wherein a top casting director had made band and totally unfavourable comments about her dressing style. This was after Yami Gautam had completed shooting for Vicky Donor and the movie was yet to release in theatres and that casting director clearly told her to dress her age and aim at looking younger.
Explaining this entire scenario, Yami said, “I remember I gave an audition for a really big production house and the person is one of the most popular casting directors. And, I had already shot Vicky Donor, but it had not released. 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?”.
Furthermore, she also disclosed about how she wanted to say many things back to him that if she suited the role then isn’t this hair dresser and stylist’s job to make her looks apt for the character since her job is simply acting her part in the film. On this point, she said, “Why can I not walk into a meeting in a kurti and jeans or a dress, if I want to?”. She also said about how she can talk about all these things now, but back then she walked out thinking that she had lost the part in the movie.
On the work front, Yami is next going to be seen in Bhoot Police starring Saif Ali Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Arjun Kapoor and Dasvi directed by Dinesh Vijan starring Abhishek Bachchan and Nimrat Kaur.
