The Bollywood Break
Yami Gautam impressed the B-Town with her outstanding debut performance in the John Abraham’s production, Vicky Donor. The movie handled a critical topic with utter ease and was there to the liking of the masses. Gautam and Aayushmann Khurana’s on-screen chemistry bamboozled the audiences. The movie turned out to be a critical and commercial success giving Yami Gautam a perfect start in the industry.
The super-awesome start to her Bollywood career landed her plenty of movies. She signed two more Tamil movies, making her Tollywood debut with the Nuvvila.

Gautam shared the screen alongside Ajay Devgan in Prabhu Deva’s directorial venture, Action Jackson. However, the film flopped at the box office. Another milestone in the actress’s career came in the form of Badlapur. She was blessed with the opportunity to work with one of the finest actors in the Bollywood right now, Nawazuddin Siddiqui. In the movie, she played the love interest of Varun Dhawan who gets killed just after their marriage. The thriller dazzled at the big screens and was much-adorned by the masses.

She has also seen in Junooniyat again with Samrat, but none of these films could make an impression on the crowds. In the beginning phases of 2017, she was seen alongside Hrithik Roshan in Rakesh Roshan’s production endeavor, Kabil. The film flopped add to a long list of flops in Gautam’s career.
