She is graceful, she is pretty, and she has won our hearts with her million dollar smile and impeccable acting. She is our very own Yami Gautam. She is an actress turned model and she has made a few appearances in Tamil and Telegu movies. Her career in the film industry started in the year 2010 with the Kannada film Ullasa Utsaha. Though the film did not win much laurels at the box office, Yami’s talent did not go unrecognized. She got her big break with her Bollywood debut with Vicky Donor, and starring opposite Ayushmann Khurrana, she literally just stole the show.
This pretty lady turned 30 today (28 November 2018), and going by her Fair and Lovely commercials, she has shown us that age is just a number. She can still very easily pass for a college girl with her radiant beauty and bubbly attitude. Here are some of the best roles played by Yami:
The Beautiful Bong In Vicky Donor

This Shoojit Sircar movie did amazingly well in the box office, and as much as we remember the cool Delhi based Punjabi munda Vicky, played by Ayushmann Khurrana, we haven’t forgotten the beautiful bespectacled Bong lady, Ashima, played by Yami. In this debut movie of hers, she plays the girlfriend and the wife of Ayushmann, and she played her role pretty well amidst all the confusion that takes place when the truth about her husband being a sperm donor comes out.
The Blind Lover In Kaabil
This was a challenging role for Yami because she played the role of visually impaired girl named Supriya who falls in love with a visually impaired man named Rohan, played by Hrithik Roshan. This was the biggest release of Yami’s career, and Yami did a great job. The fact that she has grown immensely as an actor has been portrayed through this movie. Yami had also taken to social media to express her heartfelt gratitude to the entire Kaabil team. She has surpassed all expectations in this film.
The Happy-Go-Lucky Girl In Sanam Re

This romantic drama was released on the day of love, that is 14 February 2016. Though the movie did not do that great in the box office and ended up receiving more negative reviews than the positive ones, this film still continues to be a great one for Yami. She starred opposite the Fukrey actor, Pulkit Sharma in the movie. Yami plays the role of Shruti, who brings back solace to the life of Pulkit as he reunites with his childhood love.
Breaking The Convention In Sarkar 3
Post her impeccable performance in Kaabil, Sarkar 3 was Yami’s golden opportunity ton star with the living legend of Bollywood. Working with Amitabh Bachchan in Ram Gopal Verma’s Sarkar 3 brought her out of her conventional girl-next-door image. The role given to her was a welcome change because here she played a character with grey shades.
The Pretty Punjaban In Junooniyat

This one had her star opposite Pulkit Sharma again. Though the movie is a sappy and tedious love story, and it gets boring after a while, Yami still has done a moderately good job here as she plays the role of Suhani, a bubbly Punjabi girl. The movie is all about Bollywood clichéd romance of writing letters and falling in love.
Yami will be next seen in URI opposite Vicky Kaushal and the movie is based on India’s surgical strike. With other movies like Total Siyaapa and Batti Gul Meter Chalu, where Yami played significant roles, she surely needs good scripts at hand for she has it in her to showcase her talent.
