The world of Bollywood comes with its own share of controversies. From some celebrities being slammed by the fashion police for their sartorial choices to others being targeted for personal details about their lives to film-makers bearing the brunt for their projects, there is nothing that Indian cinema has not seen but still managed to come out of. In light of this, the Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Bala found itself in hot waters after the makers of another upcoming film Udja Chaman accused the former of blatant plagiarism. While the matter still lingers on, Yami Gautam, who will soon be seen in Bala, has now opened up about how she prepared for her role in the film.
The starlet will be seen playing a Tik Tok star in the forthcoming venture. Speaking about it, she feels the video sharing application has helped her a lot in improvising her character. While preparing for the role, Yami also created a personal account on the Tik Tok app. "It is important that people come and watch my character in the film and not the person who I am,” said Yami.
She added, “I invested wholeheartedly in absorbing every shade of this character so that people are drawn to her. I wanted to nail every nuance – from her nazakat to the small town diction. Watching Tik Tok videos helped me with the groundwork. Of course, the graph of character is different but I felt the first round of learning came from being on the app. It was an important process for me." The Amar Kaushik-helmed directorial also features Bhumi Pednekar alongside Ayushmann and Yami. The storyline revolves around the troubles faced by a young man who suffers from premature balding. Starring Sunny Singh of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety fame, Udja Chaman also tells the story of a man who’s suffering from premature balding. Bala will release on November 7.
