My team and I really hope that we all exceed your expectations in bringing this incredible story to the screen!”

During an interview with PTI, Yami said that a section of people goes into theatres already thinking or carrying a preconceived notion about the film being propaganda, those people will never be able to feel or enjoy the film. “There is no point justifying the film to them. I don’t think the audience thinks about these things. This film is for the majority of the audience, and we make films for the audience,” she said.

During the trailer launch of Article 370, Yami revealed that she is expecting her first child with filmmaker and husband Aditya Dhar.

I’ve been working and have been independent all my life and all those things are there. But I suddenly feel so special. Something has changed in me and that change is for good. I feel like I’ve developed a different perspective towards things."
