Actress Yami Gautam, who is gearing up for the release of the forthcoming film ‘Sarkar 3’, says the film has given her an opportunity to showcase a very different side of her. She says taking up such challenges gives her a kick.

The 28-year-old actress made her Bollywood debut with filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Vicky Donor’, where she essayed a simple girl-next-door. Earlier this year, she played a visually impaired girl in ‘Kaabil’ and she is now gearing up for the release of ‘Sarkar 3’, where she will be seen playing a grey character.

Taking up challenges gives Yami Gautam a high

“‘Sarkar 3’ gave me the opportunity to explore and showcase a very different side of me. That was the most exciting part. While ‘Kaabil’ was challenging in its own way as I played a visually impaired girl, ‘Sarkar 3’ had its own tests too. It gives me a different high to take up challenges for my characters,” Yami said in a statement. Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, ‘Sarkar 3’ features Amitabh Bachchan, Manoj Bajpayee, Jackie Shroff, Ronit Roy and Amit Sadh in pivotal roles.

Despite having no filmi connections, the pretty girl from Chandigarh made everyone sit up and take notice of her when she made her Bollywood debut in the surprise hit ‘Vicky Donor’ (2012). In Yami Gautam’s five-year career, she has seen not just successes, but also an equal number of misses at the box office; yet, that hasn’t deterred her from pursuing her dream — movies. After portraying a vulnerable character in ‘Kaabil’ earlier this year, the actress will soon be seen in Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Sarkar 3’, in which she is essaying a dark character for the first time. In a tete-a-tete, Yami shares her experience of working on the crime-drama franchise, how her failures have been instrumental in helping her climb the ladders of success and contrary to all the rumours, why love isn’t on the cards.
