Yami Gautam, who is celebrating her birthday today, has revealed an interesting facet about her husband director Aditya Dhar in a recent interview.

Recalling an incident from the set when Aditya left the crew members pleasantly surprise with his humility, Yami said that he is “one of those rare directors who believes you don’t need to shout on your set to make a point.” The actress said, “I remember one of the crew members sat on the floor, and Aditya was sitting on a chair. He got up and said please sit, and just walked off. That girl was shocked because nobody does that for a staff member. These small things speak about you. My inspiration starts from the professional that he is. He has so much humility, so much goodness, that for everybody, it was really refreshing to see that.”

Heaping praise on her husband, the actress said, “He values his family, which is extremely important to me. As a professional also, he’s someone who doesn’t believe in taking up any project or is always after money. He really wants Indian cinema to stand out on international pedestal.”

Uri: The Surgical Strike stars Vicky Kaushal in the lead for which he won a National Award for Best Actor. It also stars Yami, Mohit Raina, Kirti Kulhari and Paresh Rawal.
