Yami Gautam

If you ever venture into the inordinately subjective terrain of classifying beauty, you’d probably set Yami Gautam’s undeniable appeal as clean and wholesome, a smile that gains in freshness what it disdains in seductive allure. What, then, can be more characteristically understated than her “intimate wedding” with Aditya Dhar, who directed her in Uri: The Surgical Strike. The gorgeous couple, clearly in love, posed in full Pahari regalia—off-white sherwani and turban for him; stunning sari, elaborate jewellery, maang tika and nose ring on her. And the pine branches are real—mountains were witness to it all. The other tying of the knot that jumped upon us involves an old favourite of ours—Evelyn Sharma, who married boyfriend Tushaan Bhindi in Brisbane last month, but broke the news now. The highlight for us was Evelyn’s exquisite lace bridal gown, the bouquet of white roses and that look of settled contentment in both.

Yami, as pretty as the first flush of pink that colours the eastern sky, led a contingent during the army’s surgical strike across the border. Or so URI: The Surgical Strike would have us believe. Str­etch your credulity brothers, and imagine Yami in a fatigue. One fierce look from those dreamily determined eyes, and poof, the enemy dissolves into rubble and dust.
