Yami Gautam would have been a Lawyer

Yami Gautam

Yami Gautam has come a long way in Bollywood since her debut in 2012 with Ayushman Khurrana in Vicky Donor. The actress is all set to have a happening 2017 as she will be working with Rakesh Roshan and Amitabh Bachchan. In a recent interview Yami revealed what she would have been if not an actor, “If not in films, I would have been a criminal lawyer,” she says.

“I did very little work on television, though I started my career there. With due respect to the medium, I was not happy with whatever I was doing then. I sat with my family one day, and decided to take a break. It was after a month or so that I began doing commercials actively. I would go on an audition spree, holding placards like it is shown in films. I did not belong to the modeling world, nor had I ever walked the ramp. But then, I just took the decision. Somehow, I knew that with all the right lessons given by my parents, I had the guts to say, ‘no’,” Yami explains.

Yami had always been fond of dance, “I have been passionate about dance since my childhood — I started learning Bharatanatyam during my early years, but could not manage to complete it. But now, since I was to dance with an exuberant dancer like Hrithik, I must confess, I wanted to come up to his level. For this, I took up dancing lessons with choreographer Ahmed Khan, and then would do double shifts at home with choreographer Dimple Ganguly. All the hard work, needless to say, I had to do in order to be able to match up to Hrithik’s dancing steps.” she says.
