Fans are quite upset with the recently held Filmfare Awards 2020. Most people believe that they were biased and the awards were not given to deserving candidates. This included Yami Gautam’s name as fans wanted her performance in Bala to get the needed attention. Sadly, she was left out of the nominations which made her fans upset.
And now, the actress has written an open-letter dedicating to her fans after she received “countless messages for getting overlooked and not being nominated for (her) performance in Bala”.
She wrote, “Honestly, winning an award does feel like a strong sense of achievement and confidence. But more than that, a nomination in itself, is a mark of acknowledgment, love, and respect towards your hard work and talent. Having said that, the esteemed jury are some of the most noted and senior members of the fraternity who have made important contributions in cinema. Hence, I shall respectfully accept their perspectives.”
Yami further wrote, “It re-instates your faith that you don’t need to seek validation for your work or yourself from anyone. The kind of love that I have received this year, from the industry, critics, media, my talented fellow contemporaries and most importantly YOU – my audience, for always showing unconditional love – selfless support, means the world to me and is enough to boost me to keep working harder. It doesn’t matter where you come from, who you are, just don’t ever give up and keep walking ahead. It’s a long journey and I am a hustler, for life.”
Yami has worked in hit films like Vicky Donor, Uri: The Surgical Strike, Kaabil and others.
