Aditya Dhar praises Yami Gautam

In an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, Yami Gautam was asked if she has ever thought about writing or directing a film. In response, her husband and filmmaker showered praises on her. He said: "I genuinely feel great actors are actually somewhere great directors also. They know exactly what is the demand of the script is. They will never look at their character...they'll always look at the film very holistically like 'what do we feel that is good for the film let's do that." He further added that great actors are "very generous" and are "very holistic when it comes to film making process and great actors are never insecure."

Dhar then stated that while insecure actors can achieve success, they'll never become legends. "Legends are always people who are very secure and very holistic, and they are team players," he added.


The URI helmer then said that Yami has a very good understanding of direction and writing, which translates to her being a great actor. He then concluded the point by saying that he feels the same about Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, and Ranveer Singh.
