Bollywood actress Yami Gautam has always looked her part in every film she has done so far. For her upcoming film Uri, the actress is seen in a new hairdo.

Yami Gautam will be seen in an all new avatar, playing the role of an Intelligence officer, in the highly anticipated film URI: The Surgical Strike. Uri is a military drama based on the real life incident that took place in 2016 when the Indian Army conducted a surgical strike in Uri, Kashmir.

The male lead in the film is Vicky Kaushal who will be leading the operation alongside Yami. This is and for the first time that the two are collaborating for a film. This is the first time Yami will be seen in a character from the armed forces.
