Actress Yami Gautam, who attended the Delhi Comic Con, says if given a chance, she would love to bring her favourite comic character Wonder Woman alive on the big screen.

Yami Gautam visited the 8th edition of Maruti Suzuki Arena Delhi Comic Con on Saturday as a ‘brand friend’ of Swiss watch company Swatch which introduced its ‘Fall-Winter’ 2018 collection.

The experience was “very good”, Yami told IANS over the phone.

“It was quite nice to see the turnout and to see how people are evolving to this new cultural zone that countries are globally trying to connect with,” she added.

Asked if she was a comic enthusiast as a child, Yami said: “Not really, I was not much into comics. But of course, I did have my favourite comic characters and I still do.”

Which one?

“My one and only would be Wonder Woman. I love Wonder Woman,” said the “Vicky Donor” actress.

If she had to play one comic character on-screen, which one would it be?

“Wonder Woman, any day,” Yami Gautam said promptly.

In her view, “every woman has a wonder in her and it’s all about exploring that”.

As of now, the actress is being noticed for her powerful dialogue delivery and tough avatar an intelligence in the trailer of “Uri”. That’s quite a ‘wonder woman’ in itself, isn’t it?

Breaking into a laughter, Yami said: “It’s a very strong role, and I am glad I got to play one. The response to the trailer has been very good and positive. We are very happy as a team. We have got all the more validation for the choice we have made. ‘Uri’ is one film that’s not just important for me as an actor, but even as a citizen.

“As Indians, it is important for each one of us to know what had happened. It is an important landmark for Indian history and politics. I am not exaggerating, but the honesty, intention, passion and the sensitivity with which the film has been made is commendable. I am very proud to be a part of ‘Uri’.”

The Aditya Dhar directorial, which features Vicky Kaushal in a pivotal role, is based on the 2016 surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Armed Forces. It also features Kirti Kulhari and Paresh Rawal in key roles. (IANS)

With “Uri: The Surgical Strike” crossing the Rs 200 crore mark, actress Yami Gautam, who plays an intelligence officer in the film, believes monetary success gives recognition but the long-time impact boils down to the content.

“I feel both good content and great box office go hand in hand. Of course if the film you are a part of becomes a success by its numbers, then you are given a certain amount of recognition. But I feel it all transpires what the film was about and what kind of content it represents,” Yami Gautam said in a statement to IANS.

The gritty drama, which traces the real-life events of the 2016 Uri attack and its aftermath, features Vicky Kaushal in the lead role. The film released on January 11, and continues to draw in the audience.

“With ‘Uri…’, the film had great content which drove people to the theatres week after week. And it’s amazing to see these numbers, not to be part of any club but just to know that people have over these weeks gone to see the film, even till date, almost a month after its release.

“Overall from a career perspective, box office numbers till the time they are genuine returns to the producers, is when there’s a true impact. Every film has different economics and no two films can be compared to each other simply by the extent of its box office only,” Yami Gautam added.

Besides Vicky and Yami Gautam, the film also features Paresh Rawal, Kirti Kulhari and debutante Mohit Raina. The film has been directed by Aditya Dhar and it has been produced by Ronnie Screwvala. (IANS)
