Yami Gautam doesn`t see multi-starrer films as a threat
A film with an ensemble cast is not every actor's cup of tea, particularly because the screen time gets divided among multiple characters. Yami Gautam, however, doesn't see it as a threat. What she looks for in a script is that her character should be well-etched and is relevant to the storyline.
Yami, who has starred in films such as Badlapur (2015), Sarkar 3 (2017) and is presently shooting for Batti Gul Meter Chaalu (BGMC) has mostly been part of films with ensemble cast. Explaining her stand citing the example of BGMC, which also stars Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, she says, "All three of us have very defined characters. And before we started shooting, we had a discussion about our work and what we are contributing to the film. There should be no doubt when I walk into the sets and start working on the film. If you still have questions around the existence or essence of your character, then you are at the wrong place. On my part, I am pretty confident that we are doing the right thing."
