Fan praised Yami in OMG 2

It so happened that a fan took to X to talk about Yami Gautam’s performance in OMG 2. The actor wrote, “It’s amazing how each and every time @yamigautam manages to SURPRISE us with her performance! #OMG2 is no exception. She owns each and every frame she’s in! Even her silence speaks a lot. I hate the term ‘underrated’. I’d just say she’s under-utilised by our filmmakers.”

What Yami said in response

In response, Yami wrote, “Some people find success overnight, some people have to prove themselves persistently for years. Some people are great at marketing their talent (or lack of it), some people only want their talent to speak. As an actor I just know how to act and work exceptionally hard on identifying good scripts and versatile characters, that’s my talent. I don’t understand or get involved much with marketing of my talent.

“Unfortunately for majority of our industry everything relies on marketing of a person or project and not on the depth of a script or character. May be that’s the reason why people feel I am under-utilised. Anyways, Thanks so much Aavishkar for your kind words, it’s truly very encouraging. I will get there eventually, slowly but steadily, one film at a time.”

Directed by Umesh Shukla, OMG 2 is a follow up to the 2012 film OMG – Oh My God, which had Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. OMG 2 is directed by Amit Rai, and stars Akhsay Kumar and Pankaj Tripathi. The film collected 10.26 crore on the first day of its release, and 15.30 crore on its second day, taking the total to 25.56 crore so far.

Yami marked her Bollywood debut with Vicky Donor in 2012. She has appeared in a number of films since then, including Total Siyappa, Action Jackson, Badlapur, Sanam Re, Kaabil, Uri: The Surgical Strike, Bala and Lost.
