Yami Gautam talks about ‘mentally taxing’ pregnancy at Article 370 trailer launch


In a recent gathering permeated with anticipatory excitement of her upcoming film, actress Yami Gautam shared not only a first glimpse at the much-awaited trailer of ‘Article 370’ but also insights into her personal life, revealing both her pregnancy and the attendant mental demands it has imposed on her professional commitments. The event, which thrust both her celebratory news and candid admissions into the limelight, marked a confluence of art imitating life, as the actress is set to portray an NIA agent combating terrorism in the upcoming film centered on significant real events affecting Kashmir.

Yami Gautam, glowing alongside her husband and director Aditya Dhar, divulged that they’re expecting their first child, a delightful announcement that comes three years post their nuptials. Now, at five months pregnant, Yami is navigating the complex waters of professional duty and impending motherhood. Despite the mental and physical hurdles of maintaining a filming schedule while pregnant, it was evident that the actress felt overwhelming gratitude. She paid tribute to Aditya’s support and the covertly conducted medical supervision which allowed her to fulfill her acting obligations without compromising her or the baby’s well-being.

During the trailer launch of ‘Article 370’, the conversation naturally veered towards her personal journey. Gautam spoke with a blend of levity and earnestness, humorously suggesting she could pen an extensive thesis on the rigors of working amidst pregnancy. She acknowledged the mental toll it took, and how pioneering experiences—such as her first venture into both motherhood and acting while expecting—are inherently fraught with challenges. Gautam credited her husband’s presence as an anchor through these transformative times, articulating a relatable vulnerability about facing such milestones.

‘Article 370’ is more than a film; it’s a cinematic recreation of pivotal moments that have altered Kashmir’s destiny. The storyline penetrates into the intricacies of counterterrorism efforts accentuated by the controversial revocation of the titular Article 370, a bold move by the Indian government on August 5, 2019, that fundamentally altered the administrative landscape of Jammu and Kashmir, transitioning it into two separate union territories.

Earlier discussions about the film with Yami revealed her conviction in the project. “Article 370 is a bold chapter of India’s history. A political-action-drama inspired by true events, which will show an in-depth portrayal of how intelligence and politics work hand in hand to take some of the most important decisions that change the course for a nation,” she asserted, clearly impassioned about the portrayal of the interplay between intelligence operations and political maneuvers within a tumultuous chapter of Indian history.

In the trailer, Gautam’s portrayal as an NIA agent showcased a riveting intensity, following her critically lauded performance in ‘OMG 2’. It’s evident that the actress is stepping into yet another role destined to etch itself in the memories of her audience. Her co-star Priyamani stands out as well, while the performances of Arun Govil and Kiran Karmarkar in their respective roles as the Prime Minister and Home Minister make an immediate impact.

As ‘Article 370’ preps for its cinematic launch, what resounds is Yami Gautam’s unflinching dedication to her craft, alongside a new chapter in her life that underscores not only the strength of her personal relationships but also the tenacity of her professional ethos. With an intriguing plot and a stellar cast, the film is poised to be a significant contribution to the discourse surrounding one of the most momentous decisions in recent Indian history, while Yami Gautam continues to inspire by balancing her thriving career with the incoming joys and responsibilities of motherhood.
