Yami Gautam's portrayal of an undercover RAW agent in Uri: The Surgical Strike has managed to convince the filmmakers that she can play diverse roles on screen. The actress is glad that filmmakers are offering her varied roles, but the actress confesses it is not easy to move in and out of these intense characters quickly. She plays a crime reporter in Lost, helmed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury; an IPS officer in Dasvi; and a kindergarten teacher, who holds children hostages, in A Thursday.
“I have always wanted to play versatile roles. I am glad that filmmakers have faith in me with their material and are offering diverse projects. It isn't easy to shift from one character to another," Yami told IANS. Recalling her busy shooting schedule when she shot for A Thursday, Dasvi and Lost with barely any break, Yami said, “I remember being on the sets of A Thursday just a day after wrapping Dasvi, and immediately after that, I was in Kolkata for Lost. I believe a character should not suffer because of the tight schedules.”
She added, “And for that, an actor should take a moment to breathe or just spend time with family in order to avoid burning out. One should not take pride in exhaustion.”
The newly married actress feels that these little breaks help one in improving their performance. “We need to start respecting that little space for a better performance,” Yami said. ALSO READ: Pratik Gandhi, Yami Gautam Replace Fawad Khan, Katrina Kaif In Aditya Dhar's Next
