Bollywood actor Yami Gautam surprised fans with her wedding announcement in June. In a recent interview, Yami revealed that she and director Aditya Dhar had initially planned to only get engaged, and the wedding was impromptu.
In a conversation with Film Companion, Yami shared that her and Aditya’s families were over the moon with their decision to get engaged, but then Yami’s grandmother suggested they should get married. “We were just supposed to get engaged, and then we were going to let time take its due course. But my nani was like ‘This engagement and all is not a part of our culture, so how about getting married?’ Then Aditya asked, ‘Are you ready? Shall we?’”

The actor added, “And I said, ‘Yeah. Okay. Let’s do it at our home in Himachal.’ And we just went for it.”
Yami Gautam also shared that the timing of the pandemic led to their wedding. “We didn’t see it happening this year honestly. But as they say whenever it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. We didn’t plan it but I think it happened in the most beautiful way. This is actually what I wanted. This is who we are,” she shared.
Yami Gautam and Aditya Dhar had a low key wedding with just their family members and close friends in attendance. The Bhoot Police actor shared that at their core, she and Aditya are both family-oriented people. She even added that even though they haven’t gotten any time for a honeymoon yet, she wanted their families to tag along on the vacation. “Honestly, my sister and everybody was asking, ‘Where will you all go?’ I said, ‘Wherever we go, you all have to come’. She said, ‘What? How ridiculous is that? What kind of a Barajtya family film are you making?’ But you know that’s who we are. We love having our families around.”
Yami also spoke about the initial stages of their relationship and how their friendship started developing during the promotions of Uri. She told Film Companion, “We started interacting during the promotions of Uri and that is when we started knowing each other. It had been about 2 years and we were just like ‘Let’s get married’. Our families were equally happy, or probably even happier.”
On the work front, Yami Gautam will soon be seen in Bhoot Police. She also has Dasvi, Lost and A Thursday in her kitty.
