Mumbai, Feb. 4 -- Bollywood actor Yami Gautam's last release, Badlapur (2015), was a hit. Currently, she is busy with the promotions of her upcoming film, Sanam Re, alongside Pulkit Samrat.

However, until a few weeks ago, she was only fending off questions about her alleged relationship with Pulkit. "I come from a family of values, and I believe silence is a way of showing where you come from. It shouldn't be mistaken for not having an answer. It's about dignity and grace, which my parents have taught me," says Yami.

Is she worried that her silence might get misconstrued? "I don't pay attention to things that don't deserve it. I am here to work. Work has got me this far in the industry, and it is the only thing that will take me where I want to go," says the actor.

Having spent around four years in the Hindi film industry, Yami feels "it's very easy to go crazy here and lose yourself " amidst all the media attention. She adds, "It is a big bad world. But, I am still the person I was. Nothing has changed for me."
