Actress Yami Gautam, who will next be seen in Bala, feels the Hrishikesh Mukherjee genre of films are making a comeback as the movies now are high on content and humour. Hrishikesh Mukherjee's films from the '70s and '80s were a big hit. As someone who has herself been a big fan of his movies like Chupke Chupke and Golmaal, Yami is surprised to note that the genre could be making an unlikely comeback in 2019 in a revamped manner.

"Because the content space is so vast, one can see different kinds of films working these days. It's a good thing that no film comes with a guarantee of working perfectly. I do see great promise in the stories of regular people from regular lives. There's a certain amount of magic and charm in them if told with wit," Yami says. The actress, who has starred in films like Uri: The Surgical Strike and Kaabil, says regular people as heroes can make people identify with these characters.

"Relatibility is virtue in stories in this day and age. I am constantly looking for more movies in the genre, which are slice of life films essentially but hinged on an interesting concept and premise. I feel the Hrishikesh Mukherjee genre of films are making a comeback. They are changing in design, narrative and telling but at its core, they are of similar vein," she adds.

Directed by Amar Kaushik, Bala revolves around a prematurely balding man, which is being essayed by Ayushmann Khurrana. Yami will be seen playing a model from a small town for the first time on screen.
