Yami Gautam may have enjoyed a breakthrough debut with Vicky Donor but she has struggled to make a mark in Bollywood and the actor hopes Kaabil will help cement her position more commercially.
The 27-year-old actor has appeared in a number of films like “Total Siyappa”, “Action Jackson”, “Badlapur” and “Sanam Re”. However, her roles in some movies have been limited to bit parts as opposed to prominent characters.
She said Kaabil, in which she will be seen opposite Hrithik Roshan, has the potential to become a career-defining film for her.
“When you are on your own, it can be a bit challenging. There could be roles which I’d want to do but may be right now I can’t get them. I have to formulate my way so I can slowly move towards reaching there. Whatever I have done so far has led me to Kaabil. It is a big opportunity for me to establish myself more commercially. It is a huge platform,” Yami said.
The actor, who is currently shooting for the film, directed by Sanjay Gupta, plays a blind woman in the thriller drama.
“My character is different from what I have done. Hrithik and I are playing blind people in the film. It required a certain kind of homework. It is challenging not just for the actors but also for the director and the rest of the crew.
