Actress Yami Gautam has recalled the days when she used to be very particular about the length of her hair. Taking to Instagram, Yami posted a note on how long hair is associated with the notion of "conventional beauty" in the film industry.

"Hairstyle is not just a part of your vanity but is very instrumental in creating a distinct look for every character. But going this short with length, was a concern for people around, coz for some reason long hair are associated with the notion of 'conventional beauty' in the industry, society etc.

Throwback to day 1 of 💇🏻‍♀ï¸Â for the role of ‘Pallavi/Jasmine’ in ‘URI-the surgical strike’ ! Hairstyle is not just a part of your vanity but is very instrumental in creating a distinct look for every character. But going this short with length, was a concern for people around, coz for some reason long hair are associated with the notion of ‘conventional beauty’ in the industry, society etc. I myself was so attached to the idea of being so ‘particular’ about my hair-length, that just an inch of extra hair-chop would make me go in a state of shock. That silly 🙈🙄 But I dint think twice when my director @adityadharfilms proposed the idea of me getting a short-Bob done for the character & to avoid the use of wigs, in order to make the look authentic. It got me very excited & just went ahead. I remember that moment of feeling so light & uninhibited not just as a person- with breaking the stereotypes associated with physical attributes in this business & other’ perspective of YOU but also genuinely giving-in as an actor & create something new. A number of of our senior artistes, India & abroad have done the same seamlessly & I wish to be on that path, whenever I get an opportunity 🙏🏻 P.S.. thank you Shefu & Shim.. for being the most amazing karta-Dharta of my 💇🏻‍♀ï¸ÂðŸ’ðŸ»‍♀ï¸ÂðŸ’œ
