Yami Gautam is also a part of Shree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu starring Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. The actor will start shooting for the film in March end. She  says she is looking forward to work with Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in “Batti Gul Meter Chalu.” The film marks the first on-screen collaboration between Yami and the two actors.
“I saw him (Shahid) recently in ‘Padmaavat’ and he was superb. I have loved watching him in films like ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Haider’, ‘Kaminey’. He has always created a new character, something for which we can’t have a reference point. He has put endless amount of hard work as an actor on all these films. I adore him and admire him as an actor. He is a versatile actor,” Yami told to a leading daily.

“I have never worked with Shraddha before. She is lovely person, so looking forward to working with her,” she added. The first schedule of the film is already complete and Yami will join the cast by March end for the remaining shoot. The actor said the length of the role is not important for her as the character she is playing contributes a lot to the story.
