Yami Gautam had earlier tweeted about how she takes ‘constructive criticism’ in her stride, she feels it’s necessary to speak up if a ‘certain platform’ keeps trying to pull her down. Sharing a statement from the review on her Twitter, Yami had tweeted, “Before I say anything else, I’d like to say that I usually take constructive criticism in my stride. But when a certain platform keeps trying to pull you down consistently, I felt it necessary to speak up about it.”

“My recent films and performances include ‘A Thursday’, ‘Bala’, ‘Uri’ etc & yet this is qualified as a ‘review’ of my work! It’s extremely disrespectful! It takes years of hard work for anyone and especially a self-made actor like me to keep proving our mettle again and again with every opportunity. This is what it comes down to from certain reputed portals!” she continued in subsequent tweets.
Yami concluded her message by adding, “It’s heartbreaking since I did look up to @FilmCompanion once upon a time, like many of us, but I don’t seek that since long now! I would request you not to ‘review’ my performance henceforth! I’ll find grace in that and it’ll be less painful.”
