Actress Yami Gautam has recalled the days when she used to be very particular about the length of her hair. Taking to Instagram, Yami posted a note on how long hair is associated with the notion of "conventional beauty" in the film industry.
"Hairstyle is not just a part of your vanity but is very instrumental in creating a distinct look for every character. But going this short with length, was a concern for people around, coz for some reason long hair are associated with the notion of 'conventional beauty' in the industry, society etc. I myself was so attached to the idea of being so 'particular' about my hair-length, that just an inch of extra hair-chop would make me go in a state of shock. That silly," she wrote.
Along with it, she posted a throwback picture where she sported a short bob for the film Uri: The Surgical Strike."Throwback to day 1 of for the role of 'Pallavi/Jasmine' in 'URI-the surgical strike' ! I dint think twice when my director @adityadharfilmsproposed the idea of me getting a short-Bob done for the character and to avoid the use of wigs, in order to make the look authentic. It got me very excited & just went ahead.
"I remember that moment of feeling so light and uninhibited not just as a person- with breaking the stereotypes associated with physical attributes in this business and other' perspective of YOU but also genuinely giving-in as an actor and create something new. A number of of our senior artistes, India & abroad have done the same seamlessly and I wish to be on that path, whenever I get an opportunity," she added.
On the work front, Yami will next be seen opposite Vikrant Massey in Ginny weds Sunny.
