Yami Gautum, who is celebrating “100 days of josh” with Uri: The Surgical Strike completes its 100th day in theatres today, has another reason to celebrate. Shoojit Sircar’s Vicky Donor, her debut film, completes seven years today.
One of the first content-driven films that went on to become a massive commercial success, Vicky Donor was released on 21 April, 2012.
Gautum is ecstatic about the fact that she got to start her movie career with a film as successful as Vicky Donor, and is now simultaneously celebrating the 100th day of Uri in cinemas, which is in fact a rare feat.
Speaking about it all, Yami said, “It’s been a great year so far. Today is the day, when Vicky Donor was released 7 years ago, and what a momentous coincidence that it also is the 100th of Uri at the theatres. Both these films have truly etched a very important place in my career and I couldn’t be more happy to have this day to celebrate these two amazing successes. I’m thankful to Shoojit Da to have given me my first film and what a great debut to have and now Aditya Dhar for having me cast in a role people haven’t seen me do before. These two projects have been such tremendous successes and I’m grateful that I have two reasons to be in a celebratory mood for.”
The actor has also experimented with Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films.
