Bollywood actor Yami Gautam has formed her own niche in the film industry now. From Fair and Lovely advertisement to working with Bollywood biggies, Yami’s story has been inspiring.
Recently, the ‘Kabil’ actor revealed about her neck injury which sabotaged her dream of becoming an IAS officer.
Earlier, in August 2020, she took to Instagram and revealed that an accident impacted her life, including her ability to work out. At the time, Yami shared a detailed post about how yoga had helped her.
Now, in a recent interview with the Bombay Times, Yami has talked about the accident in detail. She revealed that the neck injury was caused due to an accident she was involved in when she was in college. The actor recalled she was on her two-wheeler, riding on a highway when she was hit by a car.
“It happened one morning when I was heading to the university in Chandigarh. I was on the highway riding my two-wheeler when the car ahead gave the wrong signal. The driver signalled that she would be going right, but instead, turned left and knocked me down. The car sped away without stopping. It was very quick and too sudden to register what had happened. I am thankful that I was wearing my helmet. I was unable to move and could have been run over by another passing vehicle. However, a man pulled over and helped me get back on my feet,” she told Bombay Times.
“I had no scars and bruises, however, the accident left me with an internal injury. The doctors told me it was a fracture in the neck. At that point, I realised how serious the injury was, especially when they told me that I would never be able to work out in my life. Back then, I wanted to be an IAS officer,” she further added.
“Someone might appear fit, but you don’t know whether they are deficient in something. Everybody has their own battles to fight. Subjects like these are something that we are very scared of addressing. We are all apprehensive of sharing such things, but I took a step ahead. I want people to read it and connect with it,” she concluded.
