Yami Gautam has been busy prepping for her role in Uri, the Aditya Dhar film that is based on the Uri attacks of 2016. She has also restarted her prep for Batti Gul Meter Chaalu, as sources say the film is back on track and is set to go on floors soon as well.
Yami plays a pivotal role in the film as a lawyer alongside Shahid Kapoor. The film also stars, Shraddha Kapoor. It is directed by Shree Narayan Singh and discusses the discrepancies of electric billing in small towns.
As this is an issue that plagues many people across the country, there are various cases that are brought to court by unhappy consumers. Though these cases are against big companies, there is a lot of research that goes into becoming the prosecution for something like this.
Yami is hoping to catch a few court proceedings in the court to understand the grievances first hand, see how the prosecution addresses it and also study what certain verdicts have been. When asked about the plan she said ” I am planning to attend one of the court sessions for sure before starting Batti. As of now since its summer holidays, my lawyer friend and team are figuring a vacation bench session that I can attend basis my schedule currently. I am looking forward to the real experience at a court.”
