Don’t wish to be a tag along with Ram: Gautami

Ac­tor Gautami Kapoor (far right), who has played her ac­tor hus­band Ram Kapoor’s (inset) on-screen wife, hopes that she gets cast for her own tal­ent and not be­cause peo­ple as­sume that she comes in a pack­age deal with Ram.

“I hope in the fu­ture, some­one thinks of me and then casts me as op­posed to tak­ing me and Ram to­gether as a pack­age deal. It would make me feel proud if some di­rec­tor cast us to­gether for the po­ten­tial we have as sep­a­rate ac­tors. I don’t want to just tag along with Ram,” says Gautami, who has played Ram’s on-screen wife in movies such as Stu­dent Of The Year (2012) and Shaadi Ke Side Ef­fects (2014).

“I got the roles in the movies by de­fault. I didn’t get them be­cause they were writ­ten for me. It just so hap­pened that Ram was cast for the role and be­cause I was not do­ing any­thing at that time, they asked if I could play the role of his wife,” she adds.
