Yami Gautam is one Bollywood actor, who never fails to speak her mind. She was last seen in blockbuster film Bala. Her performance was highly lauded by both critics and audience. When asked about her take on social media, in an interview to a leading daily, Yami Gautam said
“For anything that I’m doing, I’m not putting out a tutorial and I don’t any feel the need to do that…to each his own. Everyone has their way of behaving and being themselves, and have their own coping mechanisms.”
