Yami Gautam impressed the audience as well as critics with her performance in 2019 film, Bala. The film also starred Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead roles. The Uri actress played the role of a TikTok star in the film and left the audience in splits with her fun act.
At the recently held Filmfare Awards 2020, Yami Gautam wasn’t even nominated and a lot of people pointed this out. Yami Gautam revealed that she also received messages from friends and family about how she wasn’t acknowledged by Filmfare jury. Yesterday, the Bala actress took to her Instagram page and has written a long post reacting to being snubbed by Filmfare Awards 2020.
She wrote, “I feel compelled to express my views, in response to the countless messages that I have been receiving, for getting ‘overlooked’ and not being nominated for my performance in Bala. Honestly, winning an award does feel like a strong sense of achieve-ment and confidence. But more than that, a nomination in itself, is a mark of acknowledgment, love and respect towards your hard work and talent. Having said that, the esteemed jury are some of the most noted and senior members of the fraternity who have made important contributions in cinema. Hence, I shall respectfully accept their perspectives.”
Gautam concluded, “In the end, I just want to say, these are just experiences which make you even more self assured and determined in life. It re-instates your faith, in the fact, that you don’t need to seek validation for your work or yourself from anyone.”
