Update: 7:19 am – Asked about her feeling on receiving this felicitation, Yami said, “I had the privilege to understand how challenging it is to make it in our respective fields. And this award does give me a sense of pride for making it on my own as I do not have a godfather here and I am not from Mumbai.”
The ‘Sanam Re” actress also said that she has just begun her acting career and has a long way to go.
“This feels a little different. To be felicitated here by Indian Chamber of Commerce is a very big deal. There is a lot more to do as I have just begun my journey. Honour like this gives a lot of encouragement, to work harder and achieve more,” she said.
Starting her career as a model, Yami has come a long way and is thankful to her mother for all the support and encouragement.
