Substance Of A Role Matters Me A Lot, Says Actress Yami Gautam Cinema News
Actress Yami Gautam, who is playing an advocate in the upcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu, says she never thought about the length of her role, but the substance of it and how the film will give her an opportunity to grow as an actress.
As the film is featuring Shraddha Kapoor as the female protagonist opposite Shahid Kapoor, Yami says, “This is the first time I am playing an advocate and it is a pivotal part of a court-room drama. So as an actress the substance of my role matters to me more than anything else.” To prepare for her character, Yami attended the Bombay High Court.
So, did she find something very new? “Observing the body language of a lawyer and wearing the confidence on the sleeve when you are talking in the court. The clarity of thoughts, the word that you are using as a lawyer with the awareness of the impact of them are very important,” she says. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, the film is releasing on September 21.
