In the case of bigger stars from the film industry, there is a very thin line between their personal and professional life. It is also said to be a cutthroat industry where actors are pitted against each other and are judged and compared with their work. In a recent conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Yami Gautam spoke about keeping herself sane and what brings her joy at the end of the day from this day-to-day number game of the film industry.
EXCLUSIVE: Yami Gautam on dealing with work stress- “My job, my films are a part of my life, not my entire life”
Talking about dealing with the stress that comes with the job and how she keeps herself sane, Yami said, “We constantly talk about mental health and its importance. But we have ourselves created this vicious circle and a lot of things in this circle contribute to the stress. It’s not just about that opening or this and that. But it is a culmination of a lot of things whether it is your social media or how much you are getting papped. You need to be seen, you need to be out there. All of this is a self-created distraction. It might be for me, but it might not be for someone else. However, deep down I refuse to believe if someone says it doesn't have an impact; it does have an impact even on the happiest looking person. Even if you judge someone on various parameters including numbers, even that person deep is sad. It is very important to not take it too seriously.”
“My job, my film are a part of my life, not my entire life. My sense of humour and something as simple as enjoying a meal with my family, it is the most important thing for me. I cannot let that go. I can never be so busy unless you are travelling out of town, that I don't have time to have at least one meal with my family. I need that time. I will watch a good film that I have watched 50,000 times, again if it makes me happy. In my vanity van, if I am prepared for a scene and it is not a heavy scene, there is FRIENDS (the show) playing on my Ipad. It is there in the background. It just makes me happy. Or some 90s songs from Govinda's films or Rahman sir's songs. Something that small to being with my family to now my husband that makes me happy,” the actress said speaking about how she keeps herself sane.
