‘Chal­lenges never stop, they only go to the next level’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Yashika Mathur

Ac­tor Yami Gau­tam’s last re­lease Kaa­bil brought her crit­i­cal and com­mer­cial ac­claim. The ac­tor, who started out with a TV show and even­tu­ally bagged some big films, says that things do get tough for new­com­ers, but there is al­ways some­thing that keeps them go­ing. “When you are new, there are times when you find it tough deal­ing with dis­ap­point­ments and re­jec­tions. Chal­lenges will not stop, they will only go to the next level but you can’t give up. You can’t make ex­cuses. You are here for a rea­son. This is the thought which gets me go­ing,” says Yami.

The ac­tor got a break in Bol­ly­wood with Vicky Donor and there was no turn­ing back. “It’s all about how you face your chal­lenges,” she says.

Talk­ing about her Kaa­bil co-star Hrithik Roshan, the ac­tor says that she was very ner­vous work­ing with him but Hrithik made her feel at ease. “I had all the rea­sons to be ner­vous. I had heard that Hrithik is a per­fec­tion­ist,” re­calls Yami. When the ac­tor told Hrithik that she was very ner­vous, he replied that he was equally ner­vous. “The ice was bro­ken. You have to work with him to be­lieve that he is fan­tas­tic,” says Yami.
