Actress Yami Gautam is all set to play the character of a career-driven woman in her forthcoming film ‘Ginny Weds Sunny’. She drew a few parallels between her role Ginny and that of Ashima, the character she essayed in her debut film, Vicky Donor.
In an interview with a leading tabloid, the actress said that both the characters were strong-minded, independent women who could hold their own. Ginny is brave, not brash; she is strong, not arrogant. The opinions that these girls have, resonate with her. She understands that in cinema, not every character should be the same. She also agrees that an actor will stop exploring his or her range if they make each character a replica of the other.
Yami will be seen sharing the screen space with Vikrant Massey. In the Puneet Khanna directorial, Ginny turns down a proposal brought in by her mother. It is Massey’s character, Sunny, who, along with the mother, convinces Ginny to tie the knot. Much like her on-screen character, the actress says that she finds the need to be assertive as an artist, as well. She particularly despises how actors are forced to take a stance on matters that may or may not concern acting. She says that she is a bit of everything, and she wants to remain the way she has been, without subjecting herself to the demands of what is expected of her.
