Kaabil actress Yami Gautam says she is looking forward to work ing with Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in Batti Gul Meter Chalu.
The film marks the first on-screen collaboration between Yami and the two actors.
“I saw him (Shahid) recently in Padmaavat and he was superb. I have loved watching him in films like Udta Punjab, Haider, Kaminey. He has always created a new character, something for which we can’t have a reference point. I adore him and admire him as an actor. He is a versatile actor,” Yami told PTI.
“I have never worked with Shraddha before. She is a lovely person, so looking forward to working with her,” she added.
Yami, however, did not divulge further details about the Shree Narayan Singh-directed project. “I am not telling the story. (All I can say is) Both Shahid and I are playing lawyers. I am happy the way my character has shaped up. She is a very strong girl.”
The first schedule of the film is complete and Yami will join the cast by March end for the remaining shoot.
The actress said the length of the role is not important for her as the character she is playing contributes a lot to the story.
“I don’t know how do you measure a cameo and full-fledged part. I look at it as what my character has added to the story, how important it is to the narrative. I am excited about creating something new which is a social drama on electricity issues faced in small towns,” said Yami.
