Yami Gautam on 2 years of 'URI': This film changed a lot of things for me
Yami Gautam earned much acclaim for her portrayal of an intelligence officer in ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’.
As the film competes two years of its release today, an emotional Yami Gautam spoke about what makes the film so special for her. She said, "Feels great looking back at Pallavi from Uri today. It's been two years today and for me it was this film that changed a lot of things, in me as an actor and how the audience and certain directors looked at me an actor. Not just the physical transformation but also the strength that the character held and the versatility I got to portray.”
On the work front, Yami Gautam has been busy shooting for 'Bhoot Police'. She will also be seen in Behzad Khambata’s directorial 'A Thursday' and Maddock Films’ 'Dasvi'.
Relaying how things changed for the better for her, Yami added, “In that short span and knowing that it's going to be primarily about operation, for me it was Uri where it began all over once again for me. The kind of adulation I got from my first film, so forever in debt to Aditya, the audience, the Indian army and the entire team for making this film what it became." One of the most celebrated films in Hindi cinema, 'Uri-The Surgical Strike' won several National Awards. Directed by Aditya Dhar, the film also starred Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Kirti Kulhari and Mohit Raina in pivotal roles.
