Yami posted a series of her untouched and unedited pictures on her Instagram. While expressing herself, the actress said, “Hello my Insta family, I recently shot for some images and just when they were about to go in for post-production (a common procedure) to conceal my skin condition called Keratosis- Pilaris, I thought, ‘Hey Yami, why don’t you embrace this fact and accept it enough to be OKAY with it. Just let it be… (Yes, I do talk out loud to myself????????♀).”

“For those who haven’t heard about this, it’s a skin condition wherein you get tiny bumps on the skin. I promise they aren’t as bad as your mind and your neighbour aunty makes it out to be) I developed this skin condition during my teenage years, and there is still no cure for it, she adds.”

“I’ve dealt with it for many years now and today finally, I decided to let go of all my fears and insecurities and found the courage to love and accept my ‘flaws’ wholeheartedly. I also found the courage to share my truth with you. Phew! I didn’t feel like airbrushing my folliculitis or smoothing that ‘under-eye or ‘shaping up’ that waist a tiny bit more! And yet, I feel beautiful :),” she concluded.

On the work front, Yami has a packed calendar. Her films Dasvi, A Thursday, and Lost are in the pipeline for release, while OMG 2, Dhoom Dhaam, and Chor Nikal Ke Bhaaga are all in the makings.
