Yami Gautam was in Dubai recently shooting for a film and during the conversation, the topic moved to her wedding with Aditya Dhar. Yami and the director of her film Uri: The Surgical Strike, Aditya Dhar, married in June this year.
It was Aditya Dhar’s value system and the way he balanced his work and family attracted Yami towards him.
“I asked him just before the release of Uri, if he was nervous. He said he wasn’t for himself but he did feel a responsibility towards two things. First was the Indian Army, because they trusted him. Second, was towards producer Ronnie (Screwvala) because he invested in a first-time filmmaker. Aditya wanted to return every penny that was spent on this. I thought that was amazing and something to learn from. That comes from the kind of person you are,” Yami shared. “He values his family, which is extremely important to me. He really wants Indian cinema to stand out on international pedestrian,” she adds.
Yami revealed that she always wanted to get married in Himachal, in her mother’s saree. She even shared that the nose-ring she wore at the haldi ceremony was gifted by her maternal grandmother. “My nani kept a saree ready .” Yami also did her own makeup, her sister Surilie helped her with the hair and getting the wedding attire ready.
Yami is currently riding high on the success of Bhoot Police. Her upcoming projects include Dasvi, A Thursday, OMG 2 and Lost.
