While she has appeared in several comedy films throughout her impressive career, it was her role in the 2019 release Bala which she did right after a film like URI, which surely opened up to good box office numbers that left an enduring impression on millions!

Recently, as she appeared in an interview, she opened up about people's reactions to her doing comedy films. Throwing light on the same, Yami said, "The same year after URI, I read another script which turned out to be a comedy film, URI.. and I felt I must do this because a lot of actresses don't really get the opportunity to play comical roles. A few of my favourite actresses are Manorama and Sridevi. So yes, very few actresses get to do comedy and after receiving the role, a lot of people told me how they felt about this."

She further added, "They happened to tell Amar [Kaushik]. Are you sure you want to cast Yami? She looks like quite the serious type.. and this is maybe because I don't hang around enough or something.. God knows. But thanks to Amar. He was very sure I would do this. Most memorable role of my career!"

Be it the silver screen or OTT platform, Yami has had a rollercoaster of successes, one after the other! Post her recent theatrical release, OMG-2, she has received immense love for playing the role of a lawyer. The actress will be next seen in the caper comedy named, Dhoom Dhaam!
