“During my growing-up days, I was very skinny and everyone would tell me I was weak because I was tiny. Being a Punjabi from Chandigarh, I was surrounded by girls who were wide-structured and, in comparison, I would look weak. I ate everything to gain weight but I did not realize my body structure was narrow. Once my mother noticed such a thing was upsetting me, she said, ‘Never ever think that you are weak just because you are skinny. You are a strong girl. One day, you will see how strong and beautiful you are,” Yami Gautam told the newswire.

The actress went on to add that she was once an introvert child and had stage fear. “I remember I had to recite a poem in school. I went in prepared but when I was on stage in front of a room full of audience, I froze. I was nervous and God knows how I just uttered those lines and ran away. That was me as a grown-up child. So, yes, I had to work hard to overcome such a thing, because as an actor I am supposed to be free, I should not have inhibitions. Most of the feedback I have received for Bala is that I was very uninhibited,” the actress concluded.
