Yami Gautam Hits Back At Haters With Strong Reply For Accusing Her Of Insulting Assamese Culture

The beautiful Bollywood actress Yami Gautam was last seen in “Bala” with Ayushmann Khurana and Bhumi Pednekar and the movie was loved by audiences. Recently, the actress went to Guwahati for an event but an incident happened after which she was accused to showing disrespect to the Assamese culture.

Yami went to Guwahati on March 1 as she was there for the inauguration of Great Guwahati Marathon but on the airport, one of her fans tried to put a gamosa around the neck of the actress as a welcome gesture but without her permission. Yami was not prepared for it and she pushed the fan’s hand and her team member told the fan to stay away from the “Kaabil” star.


Soon people started slamming Yami Gautam for disrespecting the Assamese culture as gamosa is a traditional attire.

The actress didn’t take much time in responding and she tweeted her side of the story. She wrote that whatever she did was done in self-defense. She further wrote that as a woman, she is not comfortable if someone tries to come close to her and as any other girl, she also has the right to express her discomfort. In addition, she clarified that she never meant to hurt sentiments of anyone but it is quite important to speak against something which one finds inappropriate.

Her tweet read, “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 didn’t intend to hurt anyone’s sentiments but it’s very important to voice out a behaviour, inappropriate in any manner”.

Yami Gautam didn’t stop here and made another tweet in which she wrote that this is the third time she has visited Assam, adding that she loves the culture and people of the state. As per her, it is not right to react without even knowing the other side of the story and spread negativity. The actress goes on to say that she will keep on coming back to this lovely place.

Yami Gautam tweeted, “This is my third visit to Assam. I have always expressed my love towards Assamese culture & people. It’s insensitive to react to a single-sided story & spread hate. I am present here, in this beautiful state for an important event & shall always keep coming back. Peace & Respect”.

However, Yami wanted to give a perfect answer to the haters so she made another tweet with her photo in which she can be seen wearing japi and gamosa.

Check out the pic:

The actress shared the photo with caption, “Had a great time flagging off ‘Great Guwahati Marathon’ -2020! Was so good to see so many smiling faces & hence could feel the love! Thank you for this beautiful ‘Japi’ & ‘Gamosa’”.
