The fair princess who is slowly making her way to the top tier.

Age and Height

Marriage/Relationships

Family

Yami was born in Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh to Punjabi film director Mukesh Gautam and Anjali Gautam. She has two siblings: sister Surilie Gautam and brother Ojas Gautam.

Career

Yami started her career at a young age of 20 with television. With the 2008 show Raajkumar Aaryyan and 2009 show Yeh Pyar Na Hoga Kam, she became a recognizable face among the TV-watching audience. Between 2008 and 2010, she remained active on television.

Yami did her first movie, the Kannada film "Ullasa Utsaha", in 2009 but didn’t find the necessary attention. However, her big break came with the 2012 film Vicky Donor, which was a surprise hit and launched the career of both its lead actors. 

Since the beginning of her movie career, she has been active in multiple regional languages, including Kannada, Punjabi, Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil, and Marathi. After Vicky Donor, her career had an average run for many years, with frequent hits-and-misses and roles that didn’t have much substance. However, a big exception was the 2017 film Kaabil, where her performance as a blind rape victim was applauded and the film was a major commercial success too. She would soon be seen in the 2019 film "Uri: The Surgical Strike".
