Yami Gautam along with her family had years ago pledged to donate their eyes to contribute to the society and touch someone’s life, who would value having vision.
The actress had first-hand understandings of the challenges faced by the visually impaired as she prepared for her role of a visually impaired Surpiya in 2017 hit Kaabil.
The Bollywood actress delivered a power packed performance in Kaabil, leaving critics and audience hailing her act. Yami was drawn to the spirit of living by the visually impaired and leaves no chance to celebrate their achievements.
Yami Gautam will next be seen in Batti Gul Meter Chalu alongside Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
