Quite often, actors end up being at the receiving end of public flak for no reason. This time, it was the turn of Kaabil actress Yami Gautam who has been accused of disrespecting Assamese culture.
Yami went to Assam to inaugurate the Great Guwahati Marathon on March 1, 2020. At the airport, a male fan tried to get close to her by trying to put a ‘Gamosa’ around her neck without her permission. The Gamosa is a traditional outfit of the Assamese. Not expecting this move, Yami moved back and her team moved the fan away. This led down to criticism against Yami that she disrespected the traditional Assamese culture. Clarifying her stand on the same, Yami wrote –
My reaction was simply self defense. As a woman,if I am uncomfortable with anyone getting too close to me, I or any other girl has every right to express it. I Dint’ intend to hurt anyone’s sentiments but it’s very important to voice out a behavior, inappropriate in any manner https://t.co/sUc4GPxfWv
