Yami Gautam has joined the star cast of Batti Gul Meter Chalu, co-starring Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.

Yami could not conceal her excitement and she tweeted about the same. In return, Shahid welcomed her on board.


This will Yami's next outing after Kaabil, wherein she played Hrithik Roshan's wife.

Yami will start shooting for the film soon.

A source says, "Yami loved her role and did not take a long time to say 'yes'. The role has a lot of scope for her to display her histrionics."

Shraddha Kapoor and not Yami will romance Shahid in the film.

For those who've come in late, Shraddha beat Katrina Kaif and Vaani Kapoor to the winning post in bagging this role.

Going back to Yami. She has been in the news, more for her personal life with Pulkit Samrat whom she is currently dating. Pulkit was involved with her, even when he was in marriage with Salman Khan's rakhi sister Shweta Rohira. In an exclusive interview with SpotboyE.com, Shweta had called Yami as a 'homebreaker'.


Naturally, Shweta hates her--- which was again evident from a recent story on our platform.


Batti Gul Meter Chalu will be directed by Shree Narayan Singh, who helmed the Akshay Kumar-Bhumi Pednekar hit Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. The film revolves around electricity thefts.
