(above) in film­maker Ram Gopal Varma’s third film in the Sarkar fran­chise. She shares how she was ex­tremely ner­vous when the shoot for their film be­gan, but Big B made her feel com­fort­able.

“The name Amitabh Bachchan in it­self is so in­tim­i­dat­ing. To get the op­por­tu­nity to work in a film with him was al­ready giv­ing me shiv­ers. But as enor­mous as his aura and pres­ence is, he is even more hum­ble in his way of work­ing and makes you feel at ease. I learnt a lot from him,” says Yami.

Talk­ing about Big B’s fil­mog­ra­phy, Yami lists her favourites. “I love his films Zan­jeer (1973), Dee­waar (1975), Sharaabi (1984) and Satte Pe Satta (1982),” she says.

A source close to the ac­tor adds that there’s a con­nec­tion of sorts be­tween Yami and Big B. Shar­ing an in­ter­est­ing anec­dote from when Yami was shoot­ing for the film, Kaa­bil, along­side Hrithik Roshan, the source says: “In Kaa­bil, there’s a scene where Hrithik pre­tends that he has got a call from Amitabh. Coin­ci­den­tally, the very next day af­ter Yami shot this scene, her team got a call for this film and met RGV.”
